Mt. Hood Spring Skiing

Mount Hood Hoorah Small 

Mt. Hood Spring Skiing

March 30-April 3

(Ski 2 - 4 days)   

If you are interested in participating, you must contact the trip leader, Jamie Zeisloft, at 509-528-2020 or


Mt. Hood Meadows is renowned for offering some of the best spring skiing and snowboarding conditions in the Pacific Northwest.  From the steeps of the bowls to the gentle slopes of the beginner runs, Mt. Hood Meadows is known for its diverse terrain and reliably deep spring snow base. That coupled with the traditional deep discounts in local lodging and longer daylight hours in April makes for a great skiing opportunity!


Meadows offers more than 2,150 acres of skiable terrain and its highest lift-served elevation is 7,300 feet.  Average snowfall is 430” which typically provides for an excellent spring-time snow base. Legendary Heather Canyon is like its own separate ski area with steep pitches of powder into the spectacular Canyon. Access gates (experts only) into the Canyon’s Private Reserve and S&R Cliffs areas also provide extremely challenging, gladed trails with cliff outcroppings. With 11 lifts, including six high-speed quads, the entire 2,150 acres of skiable terrain is easily accessed. Skiing Mt Hood Meadows is a big mountain experience, with enough acreage to keep you busy for days.

We’ll be skiing anytime between Wednesday and Sunday. Each ski day there will be a group gathering at lunchtime out on the main lodge deck (weather permitting).  On Friday and Saturday we’ll have a happy hour get-together in one of the cabins and then go to dinner (on you) at the resort's popular Crooked Tree Tavern and Grill (farm-to-table-meals at their finest) which is located just a short walk from the cabins.  Impromptu après ski gatherings are also anticipated throughout the weekend!


Social Events:
Friday & Saturday “Cabin Happy Hour” which includes hearty appetizers and cold beverages for a total of $30.


We are staying at the Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, a rustic mountain resort located on the north side of Mt. Hood and set in the midst of the beautiful Mt. Hood National Forest.  Located just 12 miles from the ski area, resort accommodations include lodge hotel rooms, lodge condos, and stand-alone cabins. The hotel rooms come with refrigerators and microwave ovens and the condos and cabins come with gas fireplaces and kitchenettes.

Lodging prices at Copper Spur Resort:

  • March 30 - April 3 (Weds-Sun)
    • 3-Bedroom Condo/Cabin = $299/night total
    • Motel Room (2 queens, or 1 double & 2 twins) = $169/night total

Drive yourself or carpool.  Carpool gas costs are shared equally between the passengers and the driver.  Round trip distance between the Tri-Cities and the Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, including a 2-day commute to/from the ski area, is approximately 400 miles. The Cooper Spur Mountain Resort is located just 12 miles from the Mt. Hood Meadows “Hood River Meadows” area (aka the HRM). We recommend utilizing the HRM for quick, easy access to skiing and to avoid the weekend crowd.  The HRM is serviced by a high-speed quad and gets the resorts first early-morning sun, so it’s a great place to start your ski day.


Lift tickets: 

For guests staying at the Cooper Spur Resort, lift ticket prices are as follows:
