Skiing, Sliding and Swinging Into Summer

Studio 512 teamed up with Next Stop to explore the amazing selection of summer activities in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory. Our first stop was Mt. Hood, where you’ll find a wide range of things to do, including snow sports.

Mt. Hood is located just an hour and a half from Portland. In that short distance you find yourself in a whole different world perfect for hikers, mountain bikers, and year-round skiers. You’ll find the latter up at Timberline Lodge & Ski Area which sits at the 6,000 foot elevation on Mt. Hood. Built in the 1930’s as a WPA project commissioned by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt himself, it boasts the longest ski season in North America, with the Palmer Glacier hosting turns late into each summer. Timberline also offers intimate accommodations and several dining options, including the Cascade Dining Room with fresh, Cascadian fare.

A bit further down the mountain you’ll find Mt. Hood Skibowl and Adventure Park. With more than 20 attractions, you can try bungee jumping, race cars, zip lines, scenic sky chairs and lift-assisted mountain biking trails. A popular attractions is the Alpine Slide, the Pacific Northwest’s only ½ mile dual slide that sends you twisting and turning through verdant meadows with awesome views of Mt. Hood.
