"It is just the lightest, most powdery snow," said Dave Tragethon with Mount Hood Meadows during a recent interview for a KATV report . "It's just so much fun to go out there and just plow through this powder. I mean, this is just epic conditions."
There are Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild members in Hood River who participate in the Destination Get Here/Stay Here Program with Mt. Hood Meadows, offering discount lift tickets to our overnight guests. Guests purchase the tickets priced at $35 for adults and $30 for juniors, directly from the innkeeper, and they are good for open/close skiing.
There are Six Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild member inns in Hood River participating in the program. Only about 30 miles from Mt. Hood Meadows you'll be well fueled and well rested for a day on the slopes. Enjoy a great dinner in one of many fine restaurants. Take in a movie. Shop the shops along Oak Street.

We make up for it with a well kept secret, the Elliot Glacier Brew Pub, awesome views of Mt. Hood and very quiet nights. And being only 18 miles from Mt. Hood Meadows you can get an earlier start when waking up at The Old Parkdale Inn and The Mt. Hood Hamlet. We also can show you some great places for cross country and snowshoeing.
