NEW: Mt. Hood Rideshare website for carpooling to Meadows, Timberline and Skibowl
Christmas 2012: Mt. Hood skiers and snowboarders have a new rideshare website for carpooling to Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline, and Skibowl.
Mt. Hood Rideshare is free to use and open to everyone. The goal of the Mt. Hood Rideshare website is to establish a single place to post all ride offers and ride requests to Mt. Hood Meadows, Timberline, and Skibowl.
Currently, there are many places online for organizing carpools to Mt. Hood, some active and some forgotten. Currently, the most active place to look for rides is a Facebook group called Portland Rideshare to MT. HOOD. The organizer Ben has done a great job making the site a go-to place for rides, and to make new friends.

Hopefully the new Mt. Hood Rideshare website can bring all these rides together to one place, and make it even easier for people to carpool to ride Mt. Hood.
Here is a previous post on the challenges of effective carpooling to Mt. Hood, which gives a little background to Mt. Hood Rideshare project.
