Mt Hood Skibowl is less than an hour from Portland and offers some of the best terrain on Mt. Hood. The ski area is known as America’s Largest Night Ski Area, with 36 lighted runs, 69 day runs and has the most lit black diamond runs in Oregon.
Offering terrain for all ability levels, the resort features an expansive outback area with choice gladed terrain, excellent steep slopes groomed to perfection by two state of the art winch cats, and two progressive terrain parks.
Mt. Hood Skibowl is an equal opportunity recreation provider operating under a special use permit from Mt. Hood National Forest.
From perfect beginner slopes to the most challenging runs in Oregon, Skibowl has it all.
Simply put: no other skiing on Mount Hood compares to the runs at Skibowl. Where most of the riding at other areas features gradual, featureless slopes up the volcano, Skibowl offers something entirely different.
While Skibowl East and Upper Bowl have great, rolling runs for beginner and intermediate skiers, Upper Bowl is a different beast. That will become immediately evident as you ride the classic, center-bar two-seater to the top. Below you, a series of 5- to 15-foot cliffs line up on the steep, gladed slope. At the top, riders can take a left and follow the East Traverse along the ridge to a series of technical runs.
Or, if you’re up for it, take a right and follow the Hanna Ridge toward Tom Dick Bowl and a set of steep, technical runs called The Chutes. Too steep? Maybe start with the steep, perfectly spaced trees in the Outback.
No matter your ability, the terrain at Skibowl has something to offer that will always keep the skiing interesting.
“Skibowl Offers The Most Night Skiing Terrain In North America” – Ski Magazine
Yes, it’s the biggest. It’s also the best.
Skibowl has the biggest night skiing acreage in America. It also has the best night skiing acreage in all of America. That’s because most ski areas offer a couple of groomed runs along a single lift. Not Skibowl. We light up three chairlifts — even Upper Bowl, where steep, technical, deep runs await.
There’s something special about night skiing. Watching the moon rise above the radiating glow of Mount Hood, the incandescent illumination of the snow at night. It feels surreal. A dream. It’s just a bonus that so few others are skiing out there — you have the whole mountain to yourself, all night long.
To descend the mountain in that otherworldly glow is pure magic.
Night ski seven nights a week starting at 3pm. All lifts, including Lower Bowl, Upper Bowl, Multorpor and Cascade lifts have lighting, providing 36 lit runs for you to enjoy. Watch the sunset on the beautiful Mt. Hood while you get in a few more runs long after nearly all the other mountains close.
We’re super excited to see mountain snow in the forecast! Unfortunately, the timing of the snowfall has been very unsettled and moving around a bit. As we approach the weekend, temperatures are now predicted to rise throughout the day on Saturday with heavy rain forecasted for Sunday.
Given those circumstances, we have made the very tough decision to suspend operations for this weekend, December 2nd and 3rd with the primary focus on snow management and preservation. Our teams will be actively farming the snow as it’s falling throughout the storm in an effort to deepen our base prior to any rainfall we may experience.

We’ll provide an update for advanced tubing sales next Wednesday at noon.
