Skiing down Mt. Hood
  • Recreation

Once the season officially has begun at Mount Hood Meadows, you better be up early for first tracks. Season pass holders get first dibs so, if you’re visiting, make sure to book your day passes well in advance.

Munchies and marijuana sandwich board
  • Dine

On your way up to the mountain, grab a bagel and coffee from Freshies. My favorite is the McFreshie with veggie cream cheese.

Session Lager at Full Sail Brewery
  • Dine
  • Drink

Once you’ve earned your turns, warm up with some cascade fries and a 20oz local beer of choice from the Alpenstube. My go-to is Double Mountain IRA or a Full Sail Session Lager. Then, head back out on the hill for a couple more runs.

Downtown Hood River during winter
  • Dine

On your way back through town, order a burger to-go online from Sixth Street Bistro, and while you wait, stop for a beer or cider at 64 Taphouse.

A hotel suite at Adventure Lodge
  • Stay

Shed the gear and crash at the Adventure Lodge. Then wake up and do it all again in the morning!
