after spending the past 7 years at meadows, one winter working at timberline will have me stay there for as long as im in the northwest. the vibe and the people at meadows aren't worth supporting and the season pass deals are absurd. although not the most challenging, there are some great tree riding and powder on molly's if you know where you're going. the park crew really cares about the park and they keep it groomed, even during the week (unlike other hood resorts). for $299 you get a timberline and skibowl pass. skibowl is awesome for night riding and as long as it's snowing in govy, you will find sick powder runs in the upper bowl. the staff and management are all great people and everyone seems to take pride in what they do.
