Oregon is located in the northwestern United States and is one of those magical places which offers you the opportunity to ski the mountains and relax by the ocean on the same day. Broadly speaking, Oregon has two large mountain ranges: the Cascades and the Oregon Coast Range. In total, the state boasts twelve ski resorts and more than 400 runs.
The highest mountain in the state – Mt. Hood at a height of 11,236 ft (3,425m) – is home to multiple ski resorts. Mt. Hood Meadows is the largest of these, offering 85 runs across diverse terrain. Freeriding fans should explore the top-notch powder at Heather Canyon. For even more freshies, head on over to Cat Ski Mt. Bailey, which is a designated freeriding resort. Another highlight is Mt. Bachelor: how often do you have the opportunity to practice your favorite sport on an actual volcano?! From the summit you can ski down the mountain in all possible directions. Families often prefer the smaller resorts, such as Mt. Hood Skibowl or Timberline Lodge.
Oregon is served by multiple airports. However, in many cases a flight to Portland is advisable and the most efficient route. Direct flights are available from Frankfurt/Main. Alternatively you could choose a flight with a stop-over at one of the major airports in the US.
