Mt. Hood Meadows


The ski resort Mt. Hood Meadows is located just 67 miles from Portland. The resort provides an extensive mountain experience that would typically require much more travel. Positioned on Mt. Hood's southeast flank, the sunny side of the mountain, Meadows' terrain caters to and challenges skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. Meadows stands out for its diverse terrain, drawing popularity for its unique offerings. The Cascade Express provides sweeping views of the Cascade Range from its 7,300-foot elevation, while advanced enthusiasts explore steep front bowls and the seemingly endless slopes of powder-filled Heather Canyon. Access gates open up opportunities for double black trails, gladed tree runs, and cliffs in Private Reserve and S&R Cliffs. Hikers can add an extra 1,700 vertical feet by dropping into the double blacks of Super Bowl above Heather, creating a nearly 4,500-foot vertical limit in one run. Beginners find gentle slopes in Buttercup and the Ballroom Carpet. Meadows is renowned for having some of the best terrain in the Northwest. Maintaining optimal surface conditions is ensured by Meadows' advanced fleet of grooming machines. The resort boasts up to six terrain parks, including an in-ground Half Pipe, all meticulously designed and maintained by a creative crew. Meadows has played a pivotal role in introducing skiing and snowboarding to more Oregonians than any other ski resort. Featuring a separate "fun zone" with on-the-snow conveyors, beginners quickly learn techniques and enjoy the sport. Affordable Learn to Ski and Snowboard Packages are offered, and the PSIA-certified Meadows Learning Center provides daily private and group lessons. The resort also houses a certified Daycare Center catering to ages 6 weeks to 11 years. A range of tantalizing cuisine is served at our restaurants and bars, while Outer Limits Sports and the High-Performance Center sports shops offer an extensive selection of alpine and snowboard hard goods, equipment, clothing, and accessories.
