Have a conference for work in Bend, OR in a couple weeks and I've decided to work it so I could ski a bit while I'm there (cause why wouldn't you?).
I've skied Timberline in the summer so don't really have a desire to hit it, but what I haven't been able to do is hit Ski Bowl or Meadows. Also I've never skied Mt Bachelor. Really curious how the crowds and terrain on these break down. Thought about doing an evening (or like 3pm on) at both Skibowl and Meadows after working on like Monday and Tuesday, and Then doing a Saturday and Sunday at Mt Bachelor after the conference. Really have no idea how crowds look at any of these, and if I'd be better off taking a day off for the Mt Hood ones or if the night terrain is plenty.
How would you guys play it? Technically I could skip all the mount hood stuff and only do Bend and Mt Bachelor if crowds are bad on a weekend down there and the others really aren't worth it. Or vice versa. The only commitment I have is to be in Bend on the 1st and 2nd.
Also for the Mt Hood side of things where do people stay? The only times I've been there we had a cabin. This time I'm alone but something with Wifi would be great so I could get some work done. The Resort at the Mountain is a little pricey but doesn't seem too out of whack with things out there for what you seem to get. Anybody been there?
