Timberline fa show.  Meadows' parks (from what I heard) BLOW this year.  Skibowl is sweet if you want to ride Outback.  Every place has it's glory.  Timberline is well rounded.

I prefer Meadows because it has so many more runs and options on what to ride. As i am not in the park I like the variety that Meadows has to offer

Heathers Canyon is sick, but it's not consistent with the snow quality and times that they keep it open.
I've got nothing hard on Meadows, and I really only ride park, but Meadows isn't bad either way.  I haven't ridden this season yet so I can't tell you first hand.  My buddy rides at Meadows and is involved in competitions and he's pretty much unhappy with that place.  Timberline kills it and it's definitely the better of the two resorts.  I love riding in the spring time and the weather isn't anything to fuss about.  The thing that sucks about the summer sessions is how they block off areas for HCSC and Windells....  Other than that, at least we get to ride in the summer!

Yeah I am not a park rat. Yeah T-Line is good for the summer time, but for the winter time for me, they have not very many tree runs or cliff drops. To top it off they only have a handful of black diamond compared to Meadows and when they are they are just a quick 2 turner and you are done.

I like the cliff drops at ski bowl. Meadows has some sweet gulleys and when they get filled with pow it's amazing!

Meadows has a lot more in that area.  Timberline has access to the Alpine Trail, so 2 turn doesn't really apply there.  On a pow day, it's a workout.  You have to hitchhike back to the top though.  I pay it forward by picking people up at the bottom.
Timberline does have a lot of good tree runs and steep tree chutes, but not near as many as Skibowl.  You two know of the outback at Skibowl?  Two diamond rating and usually a lot of powder since not too many make that little hike. 
Skibowl kills Meadows and Timberline with b/c style shredding, and more tree runs than you need.  They are super cheap too, at least with night lifts. 
I HATE the Skibowl park setup - they're never in a hurry to fix the landings on their boxes and don't give a damn about grooming but once every few days.  Worst park crew ever.

Skibowl is also great since it's the first resort going east over the mountain, which means it'll cut off 20 minutes from the Meadows trip.  Eh, it is what it is.  They're all about the night ride.  It's nice going to Timberline at noon and driving down to skibowl after they close, it's just a convenience.  Skibowl isn't fun to me though unless it's a bluebird day with a fresh coat of fresh, ya know?

I have the fusion parse to both Timberline and Skibowl but I rarely go to Skibowl. Mainly because there wasn't much powder to go through trees and their park sucks. But yesterday after whole day of tree riding at Timberline we went down to Skibowl for a couple hours and it was killer. Personally I'd save 20 minutes of driving to Meadows and go to T-line instead.

Definatly! Yeah i'm going to get a fusion pass next year cause i'll save a boat load. Meadows is ok but i think ski bowl beats it and t-line beats ski bowl so t-line is the bomb.
Do you know God???

I've only been to Meadows, so no comparison here, but it was ok.  The morning was blue bird so it was pretty sweet, but conditions got pretty crappy which made visibility at higher elevations almost impossible.  Overall, pretty fun area just to screw around at.  Nothing spectacular but worth a trip.
