WINTER IN OREGON'S MT. HOOD TERRITORY
When it's winter in The Territory, adventure comes in layers.
We might be biased, but when it comes to winter, it doesn't get much better that this. Bundle up for snow play in a winter wonderland, taking boards and skis to the slopes or enjoying tubing fun with the whole family. Stap on snowshoes or cross-country skis to get out and explore the snow covered trails of the Mt. Hood National Forest, or hike, bike or ride along miles of lower elevation scenic trails. Try your luck for winter steelhead on our rivers in search of the elusive catch. Enjoy the friendly warmth of the indoors with a local hand-crafted brew, or cozy up to the fireplace with a good book overlooking Oregon's prettiest countryside. Whether you're looking for urban adventures in greater Portland or a relaxing mountain getaway, there's no better place to experience the wonder of winter.
You don’t actually have to be good at winter sports to enjoy Mt. Hood. You can just walk around. There’s a lot to check out when you’re 11,000 feet above sea level: deep forests, glassy lakes, meadows and valleys that grow wildflowers in spring and perfect fruit in fall. Or you can stay indoors. The historic Timberline Lodge isn’t a bad place to sit in an overstuffed chair and read a book by the fire. But if you do enjoy skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing, Mt. Hood having the longest ski season in North America is going to come in handy no matter what time of year you visit Oregon.
