I visited Meadows in April and it started out blue sky and empty!. It takes no time at all from Hood River and was easy to find. All the Employees were polite and friendly which always makes a good impression. As the day progressed it became overcast and windy which got cold on Cascade Express (the top lift) so I stayed on the lower mountain. Heather Canyon was the best Bowl area I have ever gone on in my life. The afternoon was not the best, as it warmed up and the snow became extremely slow. Flat runs were almost impossible by Heather Canyon stayed awsome. By the end of the day it started to rain.
It was spring and conditions can be changeing fast there but the tickets were not overpriced and I would recommend going there on a spring day because there were NO lift lines all day.
