Overall

4.5

For those who love to ski all day and all night, Mt Hood Ski Bowl not only has some of the best night skiing but also the largest lit terrain in the country. On top of the 34 runs lit for night skiing, the ski area serves up some good steeps but short runs. The laid-back local mountain is the closest resort to Portland and offers the cheapest lift tickets on Mt Hood.

Ski Bowl is super chill and if you want to do do some hiking you can get into some pretty rad terrain. Wait for some powder and hike to the skiers left top part of the area. A few chutes and drops will get your heart racing. Also got to love a place with a rope tow for quick laps through a park. Night riding is cheap and empty. If you want to ride... More
Fabulous!

Ski Bowl is the best kept secret in the PNW with the most challenging terrain at Mt Hood. Hit up Tom Dick and I guarantee a great adventure. Closest lifts to PDX.... More

The most challenging terrain at Mount Hood is located here. Tom Dick Peak and the Outback will put you into heaven. Or just bang out right under the Upper Bowl chair.
