Here's a little inspiration from Mt. Hood. Hit the coffee below

If you've been following the CFA (Cabin Fee Act) for the National Forest cabins on Mt. Hood, you would be interested to know that a cabin owner, Doug Gann, had an opportunity to present a testimonial before Congress  yesterday. He did a great job in summing up the concerns and arguments for the Act.

I'll keep you posted with any news on CFA.

Mt. Hood Cabin Sales

by Liz Warren

Mt. Hood National Forest Cabin sales hit a total of five over the past four months. Despite the colder weather of winter we saw buyers ready to purchase, mostly with cash, in todays Mt. Hood real estate market.  Many of these national forest cabins had been for sale over a year so the pricing points were finally hitting the area where buyers were ready to take action. Mt. Hood cabins are located on leased land and are not available for traditional bank financing. Tightening of credit had pinched off some alternative sources of cash for buyers of these charming cabins. Although prices for sellers have taken a big hit like all real estate, a Mt. Hood cabin is a wonderful choice for a second home on Mt. Hood. The pristine settings on Zig Zag River, Camp Creek or Still Creek in Rhododendron and the Government Camp area make for a wonderful natural setting for a getaway.

Tubing on Mt. Hood

by Liz Warren

Tubing on Mt. Hood just went to the next level. Government Camp is the epicenter of tubing in the Northwest. With only a short drive to Government Camp from Portland, just over an hour, kids, teens and adults who want to have their winter experience in the snow can go tubing on the mountain.

Three locations  present the best opportunity. All three are also located in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Cooper Spur is just past Government Camp as you're heading East. Summit ski area at the far East side of Government Camp and Snow Bunny Hill operated by Summit is another choice. It's located two miles past Government Camp. The third choice, bringing tubing to the next level is Ski Bowl (located on the Multorpor side). Theres a conveyor belt that takes tubers up the hill. 

Have you ever heard of Cosmic Tubing on Mt. Hood? Rumor has it that this is the only area that has brought this concept to the next level in the US. Ski Bowl is the Northwest birthplace of Cosmic Tubing. This is the quintessential teenage party event. On Friday and Saturday nights tubers can get a three hour ticket to ride and listen to techno  music blast over the slopes with the hill lit up like a dance floor. 

So, if you haven't checked this sport out!There is plenty of winter left for fun on Mt. Hood!
