Cascade Pacific Council operates two 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 discount. October 30th registration opened to everyone. This page will contain links for all scheduled Winter Lodge unit activities.
When making a reservation, it is important that you use your unit's Tentaroo account and not a personal one. If you are a unit from the Cascade Pacific Council, you already have an account that was created for you. If you do not know you login credentials, please request that they be sent to you.
Parking during the winter months requires a Sno Park Permit.
Lodge Service Days
Lodge Service Days are opportunities for your units to earn discounts for Winter Lodge Weekends as well as early access to the reservation system to ensure space for your preferred weekend. Wood stack weekends occur at both lodges on the second weekend of September and the Lodge Clean-up occurs at both lodges on the second weekend of October. Other dates are available for service if your unit cannot attend either of these weekends. For more information on and to register for any of these service days, please click on the links for the corresponding lodge below. Pre-registration for these service days is required.

Non Winter Reservations
Both Lodges are available for rental April through mid-November. Reservations and tour permits are required. For use during colder months, a volunteer Lodge Host provided by the council will need to be on duty. Reservations during colder months will depend on Lodge Host availability. Lodges each have several bunkrooms, bathrooms an at least one full size kitchen.
Beginning in the Fall of 2015, all non-Summer reservations will be managed using the new Tentaroo reservation system. If you are making a reservation as part of a Scouting unit, it is important that you use your unit's Tentaroo account and not a personal one. If you are a unit from the Cascade Pacific Council, you already have an account that was created for you. If you do not know you login credentials, please CLICK HERE to request them be sent to you. For step-by-step directions on using the Tentaroo system to make your group's reservation, please click on the video on the right. (Double Click for Full Screen)
