Meadows is a joke. Although the do have the best terrain on mt.hood, the "resort" that they call themselves is a pathetic attempt.
Almost everyday, you see people smoking and drinking in the lift lines, and yelling obscene language at the top of their lungs. While this is going on, meadows has the idea that its not their problem.
The lifts stop frequently because the lift operators aren't paying attention while inexperience skiers or boarders need aid. It seems like meadows is only out to steal your money.
if you wan to buy yourself burger, fries, and a drink, plan on spending around 13 bucks for a burger with less than a quarter pound of meat, and a tea cup full of fries!
When you go to meadows resort page, you will be sure to find out dated information, and lies about the amount of snow they have, and other information.
When checking passes, meadows is more interested in making sure you have your pass then actually loading the lift. As many as five empty chairs go by, as the ignorant employees check and re-check passes.
Many people go to meadows and love it simply because they havn't been to real resorts, or don't go up three days a week for the winter. If meadows wants to call themselves a resort, then they need to buck up, and start taking on the responsibilities, instead of being all talk and no game.
