MT. Hood Territory: Create Your Adventure

Celebrate snow sports at historic Timberline Lodge & Ski Area. Join Olympic hopefuls on the slopes for North America’s longest ski season as they train all summer long on the Palmer Glacier. Trek out with Mt. Hood Adventure on a moonlight snowshoe or guided snowmobile tour. Shred some powder and marvel over fireworks at Mt. Hood Skibowl, or come summertime, kids young and old will enjoy the Alpine Slide and other activities at the Mt. Hood Adventure Park. Stay at The Resort at The Mountain, a premier Oregon golf, ski, spa and meeting retreat. Golfers will enjoy their beautiful 27-hole course. And you can indulge yourself with mind and body-healing treatments offered by The Spa.

Modern-day pioneers will love hitting the closest whitewater to Portland for a rafting or kayaking adventure on the Upper Clackamas River, home to the largest whitewater festival in the Pacific Northwest. For a more relaxed journey, float your kayak amidst the majestic natural beauty of The Territory’s tranquil alpine lakes, or set out on the Willamette River enroute to roaring Willamette Falls.

The Territory’s abundance of urban, touring and mountain biking options attract cyclists from around the globe. Take your adrenaline to the limit on the Sandy Ridge Trail System with 6,000 acres of epic flow-based singletrack and Mt. Hood Skibowl’s lift-assisted Mountain Bike Park. Explore the rolling hills of Oregon wine country on the summertime Pioneer Century ride, and gear up for a season of mud, sweat and tears with cyclocross frenzy on our farms.

Plenty of other adventures await you along our picturesque countryside. Stroll through tulip, lavender and dahlia fields, savor artisan goat cheeses, pick up fresh elk or heritage duck meat and end the day sipping a glass of vino with the winemakers on our farm loops. Equestrian aficionados will want to stop at Quailhurst Vineyard Estate, home to both award-winning Pinot Noir and champion competition dressage horses in Oregon Horse Country.

Craving more culinary delights? Please your palate on a Winemaker Dinner Series adventure in the historic Silcox Hut at the 7,000 ft. elevation of Mt. Hood. Enjoy a six-course dinner ingeniously paired with Oregon wines, complete with transportation to and from this rustic chalet via Snowcat. Urban explorers may savor and share the experience of a farm-to-table communal dinner at Allium or Terrace Kitchen’s special events. See where your food is sourced and venture into pristine farmland in Willamette Valley for a chef-led tour followed by a dinner prepared especially for you from your harvest.

This is The Territory. Explorers welcome.
