Cool winter deals on Mount Hood // (c) 2010 Oregon's Mt. Hood
An overnight stay in a major city followed by adventures in mountain snow makes for a truly unique winter getaway, and Portland’s proximity to Mount Hood -- just a little more than a one-hour drive away -- makes it possible.
Solid snowfall for the season has Mount Hood’s main ski/snowboard resorts ready with terrain for all skill levels. Luring skiers are Timberline, Mt. Hood Meadows and Mt. Hood Skibowl, the largest night skiing area in America. Non-downhill skiers can enjoy miles of peaceful, groomed trails leading to frozen lakes and mountain views via rented snowshoes or cross-country skis.
Clients who are tired from a day in the snow can rest comfortably at Collins Lake Resort in Government Camp, where mid-week reservations through March include all-day Skibowl lift tickets, and every reservation features recreation discounts.
Just below the snowline, Resort at the Mountain’s all-inclusive ski package includes one night in a resort room plus breakfast, dinner entrées, 50-minute spa treatments, lift tickets and transportation to Skibowl. Package rates start at $299 for two people.
