We have always considered ourselves lucky to be able to live where we do, no matter what the season, but to many of us, and to many of our guests, Hood River in the winter is the most magical time of year! Beautiful and romantic, we try to spend as much time outside in the snow as we can,and when our fingers and toes get too cold, we come inside to warm up by the fire. Offering the best of all worlds, here are some of the top reasons you should consider Hood River for your Hood River winter vacation destination!

Schussing the Slopes

Whereas many ski towns only offer one option for skiing, Hood River doubles your choices! Mt. Hood Meadows is where the serious skiers can be found on a winter afternoon, or for those who are just beginning to discover their love for the sport, Cooper Spur Resort is where you want to go for easy slopes and tubing adventures! And because our mountain town believes choices are good, sledding enthusiasts can be found at Little Jon Sno Park and nearby White River Sno Park as well!

Frozen Waterfalls in the Hood River Winter

If you have ever experienced an ice storm, you have a basic understanding of the beauty this weather phenomenon can bring into your life, but even the most stunning ice storm pales in the face of a frozen Tamana was Waterfall. Easily accessed via Highway 35, the sight of the powerful torrent of water frozen in mid-air is worth venturing out to see, even on the coldest of days. Waucoma
