Making a Winter Lodge Reservation

Cascade Pacific Council operates three lodges on the slopes of Mount Hood. These lodges are operated for Scout use each weekend, December through March.  Each weekend date is assigned to an age group (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing, etc) to keep the tubing hills safe and everyone smiling.  All reservations are made online - units that participate in a Winter Lodge Service Day will get access to the reservation system early as well as a 29% discount.  On October 28 when the registration is open to everyone this page will contain links for all scheduled Winter Lodge unit activities.  All Winter Lodge Service Days and links to sign up for them are listed below.

Be Prepared for road conditions

Lodge Weather Policy

Lodges are open unless ODOT closes the highway with no alternate routes, resulting in no access to the lodge. ODOT notices are posted at Please BE PREPARED for winter driving by visiting for road conditions, and prepare accordingly.  No refunds are provided unless ODOT closes the highway.

Volunteers Needed!

The winter lodge program can only exist through the service of Winter Lodge Directors who each serve as host for one or two weekends each winter. Lodge Directors care for the building, turning on water, power, and other utilities, and shutting them down properly to prevent freezing when the weekend is over.

Lodge director benefits:

A small stipend to help with fuel costs and sno-park permit.

Opportunity to sign up a troop or pack early for preferred dates.

Free Winter Lodge Director hat.

Option to purchase Winter Lodge Director fleece jacket.

Warm feelings from helping Scouts have a great (and safe) adventure at the winter lodges!

New lodge directors serve initially as an 'apprentice' to learn the details of each lodge before hosting weekends on their own. Once they've learned both lodges, they're ready to host the lodges on their own.

If you're interested in becoming a lodge director, please download the application form. Questions may be directed to Bo Henderson at the council office (phone 503.226.3423; email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
