Skiing In Oregon Is Not Just For Summer Camp

'Winter Passage,' sponsored by Travel Oregon, is a tribute to the ski culture that thrives year-round on Mount Hood

This piece of sponsored content is paid for, and produced by, Travel Oregon.

The solitude of the woods, a snow-capped peak on the horizon, and miles of empty beaches are among the reminders in Oregon that connecting with nature is just a quick journey away. While most think of skiing in Oregon in the summertime, when ski camps are set up on salted lanes under a high sun, this video, sponsored by Travel Oregon, is a tribute to skiing at Mount Hood in the middle of winter and the cozy, quirky, laidback culture of the skiers who choose to stay and ski in Oregon year-round.
