skiThere is a wealth of fun waiting for you above the snowline in The Territory. Take a long weekend (or a week!), and discover your favorite ways to play. 

Day 1:

Begin your trip to the slopes at Clackamas Town Center where REI can supply last-minute gear, and head to AntFarm Bakery & Cafe in Sandy to fuel up. Nearby Sandy Historical Society Museum powerfully tells the Oregon Trail story.

Follow the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway to Timberline Lodge & Ski Area for an afternoon of shredding fresh powder, or check out their guided snowshoeing treks. Warm up with a self-guided tour of the historic WPA-era lodge and an impressively decorated hot chocolate.

Check in to Collins Lake Resort, and take your appetite down the road to local fave Glacier Haus Bistro & Pizza featuring European dishes, including Wiener Schnitzel and Sauerbraten.

Day 2:

Sleep late, then indulge in a black diamond massage at The Spa at the Mountain. Experience thrills tubing at Summit Ski Area after grabbing a sandwich at Wraptitude. Afterwards, immerse yourself in alpine history at nearby Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum.

Spend your evening at Mt. Hood Skibowl with the largest night ski area in America. Rejuvenate in their Historic Warming Hut with traditional goulash by a crackling fire. For something truly unique, dont miss Cosmic Tubing at Skibowl East, where you can race down a snow tube hill illuminated by more than 600,000 colored LED lights.

Day 3:

Kick off the day with giant house-made cinnamon rolls at High Mountain Cafe in Government Camp. Then head down the street to Mt. Hood Adventure for a winter wonderland adventure. From snowmobile tours to sleigh rides, they offer excitement at any pace. Make an entire day of it with their popular guided moonlit snowshoe excursion.
