Lets face it, its winter season and while we’re still all bored in the house that doesn’t mean we can’t head to the forest for some fun! This winter we’ve found some of the best sledding spots on Mt. Hood are ones you don’t even have to pay for. You will however need a snow park Recreation Passes to park and play! You can easily buy one ahead of time to have all season.
While you may want to head to the mountain for a day of fun in the snow I wanted to share some of the best tips we always follow. Like making sure to pack lunch and any food and water for snacks while you sled. Sledding on Mount Hood is one of the best places to go because it’s easy to be in your own area in the forest and away from other families.
The Best Sledding Spots on Mount Hood :
- Cooper Spur Ski Area
- Little John Sno-Park
- White River West Sno-Park
- Barton Road Sno-Park
- Government Camp Summit Sno-Park
- Mt. Hood Skibowl
- Snow Bunny Sliding Area Sno-Park
Please be aware that weekends are extremely busy on the mountain. There’s only one highway so if you do go during peak times be sure to allow for traffic. Also please take trash bags and carry any trash back off the mountain with you.
I do suggest lunch in Government Camp as well. There’s restaurants and shopping available. You can also visit Summit Sno Park in Government Camp which has tubing and even a small lift for skiing and snowboarding! You don’t have to go far into the mountain for your family to have a great time!
Just remember both Mt Hood Meadows and Timberline do not allow sledding of any kind, you will need lift tickets to visit those locations for skiing and snowboarding. Check out my best tips for booking your stay at Timberline Lodge!
