Mount Hood Oregon 11,275'

Mount Hood is located in Oregon's North Cascades near the Columbia River.  It is well known for year around skiing and climbing of all types.  The south climb is the most popular and is shown in the photos below. The route starts at the Timberline Lodge parking area where the sign in is located. I have seen some climbers take a snow cat to the 8500' level before starting to climb.  Cuts down on time and effort if that is an issue for some reason. The conditions can vary due to the altitude as with any mountain in the northwest.  Check conditions before you go and watch out for lots of people.
