Mount Hood Skibowl



Mt. Hood Skibowl's origin dates back to 1928, making the resort one of the oldest remaining ski resorts in the country. The ski area began as two separate resorts Skibowl and Multorpor. While Skibowl's name was derived from the natural shape of it's Upper Bowl, Multorpor's name came from the combination Multnomah County, Oregon and Portland. The following is a brief timeline of the resort's storied history.

We came home on Easter and had a fantastic lesson from G-Rod. We never snowboarded before so we were very novice. He was amazing and patient, especially with me since the boys were doing much better and picked up on it quick. We came back - happened to be appreciation day. We snowboarded for FREE! My hubby wanted me to feel a little more comfortable so he got another lesson with Danny. Seriously were do they find these guys? He was amazing too!. When it finally clicked Danny was there to witness it and was excited with me. Yep - went up that ski lift. Everyone is so friendly. In fact by the hut I was waiting for my son to come down so I can video him. A host came by and asked how our day was. Amazing! This place is awesome and recommend it highly!!

Slopes for all ranges, we went tubing on a Sunday at 9.30 am and was not at all crowded.. by 12 there were a lot of people coming in though.. totally worth the price.. great value.. we bought a 4 pack snow tubing deal worth 79$.. it was great that the place had a shop with all the right winter gear.. we had to buy better gloves for us and I must say the shop saved us.. beautiful scenic place .. will recommend and will surely visit again.

In my opinion (and I know this is shared by many others), Ski Bowl has some of the best alpine ski terrain on Mt Hood, though it's not technically on Mt Hood. The only catch is that they don't get much snow most winters due to the low elevation. But if the snow is good, this place is awesome. It's also the closest ski area to Portland and has a pretty epic night ski setup when conditions are good. Also, don't miss the mid-mountain hut at the base of the upper bowl. It's a fun spot to warm up, eat a snack, and grab a beer (or hot chocolate). Plus, there's a pretty fun, low key, snow tubing and snow play area for kids and families.

The best night skiing ANYWHERE. if the snow is good, GO! So much fun. Diverse terrain for all skill levels. Just be ready for a wild ride on one of the 3 chairlifts. Not like typical resort , this mom n pop lift is just a double lawn chair with a pole. No armrests/ bar or footrests. Just be mindful of that and you will have some epic lines. - LEG.

Brought a group of 7 people to end spring break with intertubing. It was our first time and we enjoyed it! We did the 12-2 session and the lines were very short. The conveyor belt was a life saver bringing us up the hill with the tubes. The 2 hours was almost the perfect amount of time for our group. The price was a bit more than I usually pay for activities, but was very reasonable for our tubing experience. The mountain itself is beautiful and we would definitely come back.
