The North American scenery and vast expanses of powdered bliss are a sight to wake up to. The lifts transition from the lower mountain to the Magic Mile and finally to the Palmer Chairlifts which take you at a staggering height of 8,540 feet on Mt. Hood, way above the tree line and right into the expanse of vast freestyling slopes.
The Palmer Snowfield at the top is recommended for skiers with upper intermediate skills at the least to protect you and other speeding skiers and snowboarders from any unfortunate accidents.
The lower mountain slopes and the Magic mile usually becomes un-skiable around mid-July, but that does not make a huge difference as long as you stay in the four freestyle terrain parks of Mt. Hood. The terrain accessible by the public during the summer period is limited, owing to a variety of ski camps that are set up on specially groomed lanes on the slopes.
