Ski, Sip and Chill at Oregon’s Hood River

The Columbia River Gorge town famed for windsurfing can be a winter wonderland, too.

“HOOD RIVER, Ore. — This town full of extreme-sports nuts owes its late-20th century renaissance to windsurfing and other water sports — things you might think of in summer.  Add four craft breweries and you get a town of sports nuts and beer nuts.When word got out that you could also ski or snowboard pretty much year-round on nearby Mount Hood, snow nuts came, too.  With cozy brew pubs, good restaurants and a walkable downtown that festoons itself in lights well beyond the holidays, Hood River — whose front yard is the Columbia River — is growing a reputation as a getaway for winter as well as summer.”
