Mt Hood is a stunning peak in the Cascade chain, visible from miles around, offering year-round skiing and incredible views across Oregon.

The mountain is home to 3 ski areas Mt Hood Meadows, Timberline and Mt Hood Ski Bowl. The largest is Meadows and this is where you are likely to do most of your skiing (stats above are for Meadows). We recommend you stay in the nearby town of Hood River, a funky little place that offers a handful of shops and restaurants and of course a few quality local breweries. We also recommend a few nights at the historical and charming Timberline Lodge - which is a fantastic experience, certainly for those who remember The Shining, where part of the movie was filmed.

Mt Hood was fab. Really good fun mellow runs with a few steeps and some bumps and trees to play in. We were very lucky with the snow - 10 inches of fresh snow on our first day there and it continued to snow at some point every day. Loved the night skiing, never done it before. It was like a Disney Wonderland back drop - snow on the trees and the flood lighting creating a Christmas card scene and to top it off a light fall of fresh snow.

Staff not particularly helpful at Mount Hood Meadows. We felt that, on reflection, the resort was a bit 'municipal'. Not a criticism - more an observation.

Hood River Best Western: Surprisingly good and its location on the river was quite stunning.

Words alone don't do it justice, here are the best...
