Skibowl has the best expert level terain on Hood when the snow is on. The upper Bowl is never busy so you can always find a stash of pow. I ski the outback most of the time by myself. Hiking to the top of Tom Dick is worth it for the view as well as the ride. The Warming hut may be the best place for a beer on the mountain. The lifts may be slow but that helps preserve Pow. Closest to Portland and priced realy cheap. If you want long runs and $15 cheese burgaers this is not you place. For after ski beverages you are only 5 minutes from Charlie's in Govey.
