Oregon Skiing

Mt. Hood’s naturally rugged terrain offers skiers some of the best skiing in the Pacific Northwest. Little more than an hour’s drive away, Mt. Hood is the premiere skiing destination for Portlanders. The ski season lasts from November through February and can run longer if the weather dictates. Mt. Hood’s three most popular ski resorts are Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline Lodge Ski Resort, and Mt. Hood Ski Bowl.

Mount Hood Meadows has one of the longest vertical drops in the country as well as five high-speed express lifts. The Epicenter sports learning center helps guests get the most out of their winter snow activities.
