Easily accessible from numerous locations on Mount Hood, the cross-country skiing areas have hundreds of miles of trails set for both classic and skating styles of cross-country skiing. Cross-country skiing, also known as nordic skiing, combines the benefits of aerobic exercise with the serenity of Mount Hood. Before there was the excitement of alpine skiing, there was the tranquility of cross-country. Mt Hood Adventure offers several options for beginners and experts in this demanding and fulfilling sport. Try out our groomed trails or take a cross-country tour around the Mount Hood area.
Cross-country skiing is an expensive sport, if you are not able to get out as much as you would like or you are just getting into it renting cross-country skis is a better option. Mt. Hood Adventure now rents cross-country skis, boots and poles for kids and adults. Come in and try out our line of Atomic equipment. We also keep your ski rentals waxed, tuned and ready for some quality cross-country skiing on Mount Hood.

The sounds of the horses hooves mixed with the jingle bells hung from the reigns brings out the true spirit of the winter season.
This is on our list of winter attractions as the most relaxing adventure and is definitely a "must do" for winter things to do on Mt Hood near Portland, Oregon. Sleigh Rides are for all ages and can be a family adventure or a romantic getaway. Plan ahead because reservations for this adventure are limited and online booking will be available in November.
Depending on the snow conditions at the time of your trip, a Large 7 seater sleigh or a covered vis a vis carriage will be used behind our strong and beautiful Belgian Horses. We always plan to pull the Sleigh as we typically have a solid layer of snow throughout the winter season, but in case of low-snow years, the carriage offers a wonderful ride as well.
