TR: Spring Pow at Mt Hood Ski Bowl April 8, 2010

post #1 of 4

Arrived at 3pm for first lift (Ski Bowl opens 3pm mid-week for night skiing). 10" fresh overnight. Upside of no crowd was that even the main bowls didn't get skiied out for hours.

For us working Joes, gotta love the 3pm opening time! Even with a $15 lift ticket special, nobody was there. I don't understand why folks are chomping at the bit in early December, crowds galore, but in April when there's 10" fresh and $15 tickets, nobody shows.

It's been a tough snow year for Ski Bowl, so I was thrilled to see them finally have some great conditions. 

Overall, an unbelievable April day for Ski Bowl.

terrific. powder central. so deserted. one of those tree runs looked awfully tight to this b-intermediate, tree wells were all over the place. no one on the mountain...looks like a ton of fun. this is mt hood, oregon, yes? long way from the east coast, when does the season close there - for conditions like these that is?

Yes, Mt Hood, OR. Ski Bowl closed May 10 last year, but I doubt they'll make it that long this year. They had a big snow in early May last year, but I'm not so optimistic this year.

The Timberline Lodge ski area on Hood usually stays open year round.
