Hood has been blasted with snow in recent years. It gets pounded by wet Pacific storms that lay down a deep base layer on its 2,150 acres of varied terrain, including bowls, plenty of glades and, for that end-of-the-day long run, three-mile-long cruisers. In spring, this mostly locals resort hosts races, like the Mazotfest Charity Fun Race (Apr. 20) and Rams Head Randonee (Apr. 21), then wraps the season with the Sno-Kona Pond Skim (Apr. 27), a rite of spring where costumed skiers and riders try to glide across a 90-foot pond without sinking in.
