Transportation Options

Looking for an alternative way to get to the ski resort other than your own vehicle? During the season an average of more than 100 buses travel to the mountain from Portland each week. Meadows has an extensive network of advisors who organize bus transportation to the mountain weekends, as well as midweek (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). You might consider ride sharing – made easy through our partnership with Drive Less. Connect. Or you can charter a shuttle for a small group of friends or let us arrange a luxury motor coach for your club or business outing at Meadows.

Buses at Meadows

Opening weekend - January 1968. Mt. Hood Meadows wasn't even officially open yet - and there was a bus in the parking lot. Meadows has been an innovator and advocate of public transportation since the beginning. Much of the resort's success is tied to the weekend bus programs provided for students and their parents.

Meadows continues to offer weekend and midweek bus programs throughout the season. Programs are offered in January and February which allow you to package together consecutive weeks of lift tickets, lessons and rentals with transportation. It is a convenient and affordable way to enjoy the mountain.
