A couple of reviews got it wrong!!
"There are no steep runs, go to Timberline".
I've been skiing both places for 20 years, and Ski Bowl has superb steeps in the upper bowl, the best on Mt Hood, and INFINTELY steeper than anywhere at Timberline! This person obviously did not explore the upper bowl, which is also lit at night.
"It usually rains"
Urban myth! Ski Bowl has 17 FEET of snow at the end of April! Do you think they would have got 17 feet if it usually rained? The fact is, during the winter of 2007-08, it rained a total of one or two days, the rest of the time it was actually powder snow, a really epic year!
