As the closest ski resort to Portland, Mt Hood Skibowl features 69 total runs and 36 fully lit runs, making it the largest night ski area in the United States. With the most black diamond runs of any resort in the state and 2 lit terrain parks, Skibowl draws accomplished snow riders as well as beginners and intermediates out for a great time. The Snow Tube and Adventure Park at Skibowl East is fun for all ages. It features a conveyor lift that provides access to multiple tube lanes. From the top it’s a heart pounding ride to the bottom in one of our specially designed tubes.
Skibowl also features the world’s only Cosmic Tubing! Enjoy more than 600,000 LED lights, laser light shows, black lights, colored lights and rocking music all while tubing. And don’t bother walking up the hill with that big tube, just jump on Mt. Hood's only conveyor lifts dedicated to tubing, and relax all the way to the top. Great fun for the whole family, including kids.
The best time to visit is midweek, when you have shorter lines, which means more runs.
