Spring skiing on Mt Hood is going to be awesome at least through May. More snow is on the way this weekend and Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort offers discounted lift tickets to guests staying at participating Hood River area lodging properties. And many of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast inns in the Columbia Gorge and the Hood River Valley welcome our destination guests who can purchase their discount lift tickets directly from our innkeepers. The cost of these tickets are only $35 for adults and $30 for juniors ages 7-14. Visit the Hood River page of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild website for a list of our inns. Make sure you ask if they are a Destination Program participant. Book your room and leave the rest to us. We will get you settled in for a comfortable nights sleep, serve fresh coffee and a hearty breakfast in the morning, issue your discount lift ticket and point you in the direction of Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort, 34 miles from the town of Hood River and only 19 miles from Mt. Hood/Parkdale.
