Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area

Mt. Hood Meadows offers some of the most spectacular skiing and snowboarding in the Northwest.

The resort is close to Portland – just 90 minutes away – delivering a big mountain experience just outside the city. The resort sprawls across Mt. Hood’s southeast flank, the sunny, wind-protected side of Mt. Hood and features playful terrain that welcomes and challenges all levels of skiers and snowboarders.

Meadows offers more than 2,150 acres of pure enjoyment with eleven lifts, including five high-speed quads accessing the steeps of the front side bowls to the gentle slopes of the beginner runs, rising to its highest lift-served elevation of 7,300 feet. Legendary Heather Canyon offers endlessly steep pitches of powder into the spectacular Canyon. Plus there’s an additional 1,700 vertical feet for hikers who want to drop into the double blacks of Super Bowl above, bringing the total vertical available in just one run to almost 4,500 feet.

Located on Hwy 35, 67 miles east of Portland or 35 miles south of Hood River.
