|About these ratings|
Towering over the Portland skyline is Mount Hood, the region's prime skiing area. When the snow begins the fall, grab your gear and head east, where numerous powdery downhill and cross-country trails await. Test your skills on the expert slopes at Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl or conquer your vertigo at the Timberline Ski Area, the highest ski area on the mountain. When it comes time to thaw, head to the historic Timberline Lodge, which is home to several eateries. You can also spend the night here if you plan on enjoying the slopes for more than a day.
Planning a summer getaway? Never fear: Mount Hood offers summer skiing as well, not to mention plenty of opportunities to hike and mountain bike. Mount Hood's main summer attraction is the Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl, which features hiking and biking trails as well as numerous other activities.
Mount Hood is located about 55 miles from downtown Portland. Hours of operation and prices vary by season. Depending on when you visit, you can participate in several different types of group activities, from rafting trips to climbing lessons. For more information, visit the Mount Hood website or the Mount Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl website.
