Mt. Hood Territory in the winter is filled with epic snow sport adventures to be had on the mountain, but for many, a more laid back, cozy outing is the type of adventure they are interested in. Enter: sleigh rides!
During the holidays, treat yourself to a fabulous sleigh ride through the historic Village of Government Camp. Whether you bring the family or have a romantic getaway for two, it's a truly magical experience. Belgian horses guide you along, showcasing the holiday lights as sounds of horse hooves mix with jingle bells. Your senses will notice things that typically go unnoticed with the normal fast pace of life and you'll feel connected to the mountain, the snow and the community in a way you haven't before.
A relaxing adventure could be just what you needed. Rent one of the homey cabins or rooms around Government Camp, sit fireside telling stories, reading books and playing games. Then head to one of the nearby dining venues in Govy to nosh on some comfort food and hear tales from the locals. A welcome escape from the concrete jungle is calling your name to Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory.
Visiting over the holidays? Head to Skibowl for their Annual New Year's Eve Extravaganza on December 31 with lifts running until 2am, Cosmic Tubing, bumping beats and of course an elaborate fireworks display! If you are staying at Timberline Lodge & Ski Area you can indulge in delicious foods from the Ram's Head Bar or Cascade Dining Room with a specialized menu for their New Year's Eve Celebration. Plus, a champagne toast, live music and fireworks!
