TR: Mt. Hood Ski Bowl Jan 2, 2009

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Went night skiing Fri Jan 2 at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl. The main road to Hood from Portland (26) was closed due to landslide, so went up through Hood River: much more difficult drive. But once at Ski Bowl, pretty good snow. Maybe 8 in pow over some heavier crud that had been rained on.

Video of snow conditions:

Upper chair broke down? for 10+ min (we were in line) so we bailed over to Cascade. Cascade chair is short but steep and out of the way enough (rope tow required to get there) there's always some pow piles left. After Cascade closed, we cruised Multopor awhile before quitting. Edges of Mt. Hood Lane (little ridden blue) had best snow on Multopor that night.

Is the Ski jump ramp still at Multopor? Night skiing is a blast on a full moon. Here's comes another flood PDX.

The T-park off Multopor only had boxes, no jumps. There was one small jump in the T-park at bottom of Lower chair.

The ski jump I was asking about is skiers left on the Cascade chair up in the trees. It's prolly 50 yo. might of been dismantled. This skier is jumping off of it about 50 ys ago.

my grand parents have a great Pic of that jump and a crowd of people around it in there place at the golden poles down the road from multopor. last time I was there it was gone and that was a few years ago.

thanks tex. never heard of the golden poles,is that in Govy or Zig-Zag?
post #10 of 13
in govy. you know the road that goes over the highway and to the Multopor base? well the golden poles are about halfway to the base on your right, they are old. good place to stay because you can walk to the lifts or skin if there is enough snow on the side of the road.

Cool pic. Jump is long gone. There's a run next to Cascade chair (Multopor lodge side) called Yumper - from the name, maybe the location of the old jump.
