Places to Stay in Hood River

There are plenty of places to stay in and around Hood River. Some even partner with Mt Hood Meadows and offer “ski free” options if you stay at a participating lodging partner. For details go here. In the above video, I’m the skier in the red helmet and green coat @ 12 seconds in – whoop, whoop!

Skiing in a Mt Hood Meadows Feature

Look for me (orange coat, red pants, red helmet) and several of my fellow snow pros skiing in this short film shot by OnTheSnow.com in December 2012 – the year when the NW got pounded with snow while the rest of the country looked on in envy. Good times!
