About Mount Hood

Snow-capped and serene, Mount Hood is surrounded by an immense national forest, making it the perfect area for snow sports, trekking, and other recreational activities.

Mount Hood is home to four ski areas, including historic Timberline Lodge, a classic WPA-era mountain lodge, which also happens to offer North America’s longest ski season and Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, which offers the country’s largest night skiing area.

At 11,249 feet, Mount Hood overlooks the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge in Oregon.
