Hey norwegiangirl, are you ever going to post something besides info about another website?

Don't let her kid you. Hood is weak except for Timberline during the summer.

That goes for Meadows, Timberline & Ski Bowl!
I would never ski there unless i have to when we have a r ace or summer training.

I grew up skiing at Ski Bowl and Timbie Flats, so I know all about Mt. Hood's lameness. Meadows seemed like something when I was a 13 year old intermediate. :

I skied the Palmer in June (as well as when I was much younger). It has a decent pitch, and even following the terrible snow year they had last season, it still had plenty of snow. More than half of it had gates set for the twenty-some-odd race camps that use it. I expect that some of the camps are pretty good ones.

My aren't we a little mmmmm pissy. If you skied at a resort in Ohio or Iowa and went to Hood you'd thought you'd died and went to heaven. Remember what your mom told you. If you don't have anything nice to say....STFU. Now go eat some more Turkey.

No turkey this year. I woke up at 3am with stomach & intestinal cramps (I think it was the chicken I ate yesterday), and after four hours of not sleeping, hurled. This kind of killed my plans to go to Lost Trail to open my season today. I'm thankful the pain has mostly subsided.

Perhaps I am being a bit cranky, but I haven't eaten all day, and question whether I should. Bummer day for me, but at least I'm getting paid for sitting around the house.

Sorry to hear your sick VA. I ate way to much and then also ate Pumpkin pie too. Were's the couch.: It's starting to snow in town and I hope to ski some fresh powder tomorrow. Life is good. Good Karma towards you.

If you are going to come all the way from Iowa or Ohio, take a 1.5 hour detour south to Mt. Bachelor or 7 hours North to: Yep!!! Whistler-Blackcomb. Forget hood!

Phil, Hood has great gate training during the summer!

THey have a lot of race camps at Hood during the summer. In fact, they rope off seperate lanes for the different camps on the Palmer snowfield. I attended http://www.tichyracing.com/ this past summer and had a great time.

Most of the major ski manufacturers as well as ski equipment and supply shops like The Race Place, Race Werks and Reliable Racing set up summer H.Q.'s at Gov't Camp at the base of the mountain. If you're with a camp you can demo for free different race skis for the coming season.

There is also the Historic Timberline lodge that's is worth seeing. It was built and furnished by builders, artisians, craftsmen and artists as a WPA project during the Great Depression. The last leg of the Oregon Trail runs through Gov't Camp.

It' not surprising that you have intestinal problems with that attitude. Chill out dude! Why are you so angry and unhappy? I've read many of your other posts, and you are a very negative, unhappy individual. You seem to spend alot of time online every day, reading message boards and sending nasty replies. Chill out. As someone else said to you, if you don't have something nice to say....

Also, if you hate Mt Hood so much, why are you even reading posts about it? Is this just because you have to say something negative & nasty to someone else? You need to ask yourself how this serves you and why it brings you pleasure.

Have a nice day, and try to enjoy this beautful time of year and holiday season. Merry Christmas.

My boys have trained there many a summer!

Lots of really spoiled,rich. cute,teenage ski racer babes there from all over the globe. Lots of race equipment demos to try too. If he is anything like his dad when it comes to women & ski equipment, he'll love it!

If you can tell me how to do that, I will. I can't find anything in the CP that enables me to do that. Sorry, by the way, that it bothered you. I thought this was a friendly board of fellow mountain loving enthusiasts. Thanks for the insight.

You apparently didn't deserve the respect I presented by sending you a private message regarding your nasty negative disposition. You rather enjoy posting negative messages on public forums. Ask yourself why.

What can I say. Either you get it or you don't. I have nothing more to say to you.

PS: Why don't you stick to boards that are of interest to you, ie, something you actually do like. Or do you just get your kicks out of posting negative comments about places or people that you don't like? Again, ask yourself why, or seek therapy because we're not here to do that for you.

Don't do me any favors, pleeez! One thing you can count on, I didn't participate in this forum to be psychoanalyzed by you!

Simply setting the record straight on Mt. Hood!Sorry you're so sensitive about an (accurate)opinion of a mountain.

I certainly didn't attack or comment on you, your disposition or attitude!

Maybe you need to do a little introspect check yourself?

One more thing, you have no license (where do you get off) telling me what or how or where to do anything. You have overstepped you bounds and authority here, Little Miss PC!

settle down now

Ok lets all try to get along now. If there is one thing we have in common it's skiing. So let's discuss the topic with civility and show respect to each other.

I'll start!

Well I may be an unhappy person, full of negativity, and this may have something to do with my recent illness, but I didn't respond with a personal attack just because someone said my mountain was mediocre.

Of course, if I was shamelessly plugging a website for Mt. Hood, I suppose I'd be a bit defensive too.

I'm sorry NG (or should I say FNG), that you have such an ill opinion of me, if you had developed it over a longer period of time you might have greater insight into me than you showed when you personalized this.

There's nothing scientific about bumping a thread along... just create a new post in the thread with the single word:

bump

I was in Portland a few years ago and drove up to take a look at Hood. Its about an hour drive. I think the Palmer Snowfield is about 1500 vertical. I had a friend here that a budding junior racer and she went for gate training at Hoood every summer. The father said they had every demo van in the business there and it was fun to test the skis etc.

Wouldn't Palmer exceed the area at Blackcomb reserved for summer training?
post #26 of 27
I think it does. I've worked both places in the summer.
Out of twenty three summers only four were not at Hood. (see my "favorite" in my profile)
post #27 of 27
I spent yesterday at Meadows and had a blast. Really dry powder, like nothing I have ever seen on Hood. Blue sky and friendly people with fresh patchs to find just for fun. Can't say I 've had a better day.
enjoy all
