Need some Portland/Mt Hood insider help, figured this was the best place to go.
I'm currently up in Seattle and planning a 4-5 day trip to Mt Hood area in late spring or early summer for a ski/mtb/camping trip extravaganza.
Definitely planning on riding in Hood River, most likely going to try n shuttle Post Canyon a few times. I might try and squeeze in a day riding at Sandy Ridge as well.
Also I wanna get in at least 1-2 days of skiing, I've been drooling over spring edits at Timberline for about 15 years now...
I'm going to be camping out of my truck for a few days, looking to be away from people preferably with some Mt Hood views to enjoy post bike/ski beers.
My main question for you guys: What is the best time or month to go?.... I'm more focused on warmer/dry camping weather and trail conditions than I am snow/skiing conditions. Any recommendations on good camp spots, hiking spots, or restaurants/dive bars?
Also if anyone wants to meet up or rip some laps I'm always open for new shred/alcohol consuming buddies. Any local knowledge helps thanks !
