America’s Top 10 Mountain Experiences.
For Fun-Loving Families: Mt. Hood – Among the incredible options throughout the Cascade Range (see Mt. Rainier), Mt. Hood offers some of the most accessible slopes on the west coast. Less than an hour from Portland, the mountain has three different resorts: Timberline, Ski Bowl and Meadows. Timberline Lodge, a 1930s lodge built for the heyday of American hotel travel, is definitely the star of the show, while Meadows offers easy access to lifts, and Ski Bowl has a variety of winter activities for the entire family. timberlinelodge.com, skihood.com, skibowl.com
