Mt Hood Ski Lodges – Mount Hood Corridor – Oregon’s Year-Round Paradise

The Mount Hood Corridor has been a great retreat for Portland, Oregon city dwellers for decades. Weekend vacationers rent cabins in Rhododendron in the summer, or a ski condo in Brightwood in the winter.

The history of the area is rich in local color, with connections that go back to the Gold Rush heyday. But with such breathtaking natural scenery, and such a short drive to the Portland and Gresham population centers, it remains a well-kept secret that the Mt. Hood area is a year-round paradise.

Why live in Mt Hood? The reasons are as varied as the people that choose to make it their home through all four seasons. Some say it’s for the natural beauty, others for the wide variety of equestrian property and trails. Still others love the many ski and snowboard slopes in the area.

Mount Hood Village is less than an hour from Gresham, a bedroom community just outside of Portland. Whether summer or winter, the drive is absolutely to die for. What better way to start the day than with a rejuvenating drive through God’s Country?

Of course, there are plenty of things to do in Mount Hood for those who make it their home. The hiker will find astounding beauty in watching the native wildlife on a hike through the forest. There are clubs, churches, community events, and kids activities to keep everyone in family occupied with their favorite activities.

Fly fishing is a popular pastime in the many mountain streams, and hunters will find deer and elk. Trail riding is a popular activity, whether it is on one of the many equestrian trails or backwoods ATV trails.

But perhaps the best thing about living in Mt. Hood all year is that all of these things can be done before lunch! The Mount Hood Corridor, which includes a golf course and the communities of Rhododendron, Government Camp, and Brightwood, is truly one of the northwest’s best kept secrets.
