Explore the Columbia Gorge and Mt. Hood

If it’s wind-blown, then it happens in the Columbia River Gorge, from windsurfing to kiteboarding and down-winder stand-up paddling. Add to that Oregon’s premiere destination for skiingMt. Hood, a winter oasis for the snow obsessed. Tailored around the active traveler, both places offer a plethora of things to do. Hike to waterfalls, then soak in a mineral bath. Take a snowboarding lesson, then settle down to a couple of local microbrews. Mountain bike through a fir forest or sagebrush, then sample wines or eat sushi. Sports, scenery and aweinspiring geology—get them all in this region of Oregon.
