First Snow and a Great Mt. Hood Ski Cabin

by Liz Warren

The first snows are coming to Mt. Hood and it won't be long until the boards are heading down the hill. Here is a great ski cabin with good winter access that holds a bunch of family and friends. You'll like the big open areas in the living room and dining area. Affordable at $130,000! leased land in the Mt. Hood National Forest.

Mt. Hood Wild Spring Chinook Salmon Controvercy

by Liz Warren

As we know on Mt. Hood, "it's all about the fish". There's recent controversy over the wild and hatchery fish coming up stream after the removal of the Marmot Dam in 2007 (see video)

and their spawning grounds intermingling. These spawning grounds would be in our local Zig Zag River and Sandy River. The Sandy River Hatchery recently received approval from the Feds to run their program. I am by no means an expert on fish. I do my fishing at the local Trout Farm. Here is a recent article explaining the issues.

September Mountain Sales Were Slightly Down

by Liz Warren

Mt. Hood Sales for September 2012

Here are the numbers straight from multiple listing service of sales for September 2012. Although slightly down with eleven closed sales, this had been a banner year for the highest "number of sales" in nearly 5 years! After sales increase in numbers we will eventually have some price stabilization.

It's still a buyer's market for the mountain with all residence, including condos and manufactured homes hitting a 13.4 months worth of inventory. It's the perfect time to get that second home in the Cascades!
