About Mt. Hood

Mt. Hood Meadows offers spectacular skiing and snowboarding amidst the Northwest. Located just 90 minutes from Portland, it delivers a big mountain experience, which sprawls across Mt. Hood's southeast flank, the sunny/wind-protected side of Mt. Hood. 

Meadows' playful terrain welcomes and challenges all levels of skiers and snowboarders alike.  From the steeps of the front side bowls to the gentle slopes of the beginner runs, Mt. Hood Meadows terrain is renowned for its diversity and playfulness, offering more than 2,150 acres of fulfilled enjoyment.  Rising to its highest lift-served elevation of 7,300 feet, you will feel like you are on the top of the world as you take in a panoramic view to the east and south.

Legendary Heather Canyon is like its own separate ski area, endlessly steep pitches of powder into the spectacular Canyon. With an additional 1,700 vertical feet for hikers to drop in the double blacks of Super Bowl above, bringing the total vertical in just one run to almost 4,500 feet.  Access gates (experts only) into Private Reserve and S&R Cliffs provide extremely challenging, pulse-pounding gladded trails with cliff outcroppings.

For youngsters and beginners, Mt Hood is the perfect environment to commence your little ones quest to learning the sport.  With its fully enclosed Conveyor lift the ‘Ballroom Carpet’, making things simple by taking the pain of trying to negotiate rope tows and lifts away.  Complimented with its fully accredited Learning Centre, providing a place for your children to do art projects, play games, take lunch, and learn/develop new snow skills in a safe and secure environment,  while you get to enjoy some ‘adult’ play time out on the mountain.
