Mt. Hood Skibowl

Mt. Hood Skibowl operates a special use permit on the Forest. Skibowl provides year-round recreation opportunities, including skiing, snowboarding and tubing in the winter and alpine slides, batting cages and other activities during the summer. 

The winter ski area has nearly 1,000 acres, 69 runs varying from easy to expert terrain, and 8 lifts. Skibowl offers day and night skiing, snowboarding, tubing, and activities for the kiddos.

Mt. Hood Skibowl's origin dates back to 1928, making it one of the oldest operational resorts in the country. The ski area began as two seperate resorts: Skibowl and Multopor. While Skibowl's name was derived from the natural shape of its upper bowl, Multopor's name came from the combination of Multnomah County and Portland.
