First Snow ~ Care to Predict When it Will Happen?
By: Mary Pellegrini
We typically hold this contest the first week of November. But since Steve, Lola and I are on a road trip, visiting our daughter and granddaugher in Taos, and there is snow in the forecast, let's do it now.
When do you think we will get our first measurable snowfall? By measurable I mean at least two inches, as determined by Steve's grade school wooden ruler.

Let us be home base for exploring and enjoying the Hood River Valley and Mt Hood National Forest. After a full day, you’ll love the peace and tranquility of the Old Parkdale Inn. Relax in the gardens, perhaps with a glass of wine from a bottle you picked up at a local winery or our wine cabinet. We can even have a bonfire, roast some s’mores, if you’d like. We now have EV and Tesla Chargers for guest use.
Outdoor adventures such as kayaking, windsurfing, skiing, snow boarding, and hiking await. Mt. Hood Meadows, Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, and Timberline Ski areas are only a short drive away, as is the vast Mt. Hood National Forest where trails and wildlife abound. We partner with Mt Hood Meadows and Timberline Ski Area, offering multi-night packages and access to discounted lift tickets. Stay at the Inn and take advantage of our partnership with Wet Planet Whitewater to receive $10 your raft adventure.
