Mt Hood Ski Bowl

Less than an hour's drive from Portland, Oregon, Mount Hood Skibowl boasts the most expert terrain on Mt. Hood, as well as the largest night skiing operation in the country. With only 20 percent of the mountain designed with beginner skiers in mind, this challenging mountain is not for the faint of heart! If skiing or snowboarding the steeps doesn't excite you, surely snowmobiling, snow tubing, ice climbing, or a horse-drawn sleigh ride will.
