Why Midweek Vacations at Mt Hood are the Best
Posted by Tiffany Quillan | Thursday, January 7, 2021

Planning a vacation around a weekend feels like a no-brainer, especially if you have a Monday through Friday job with weekends off. Two free vacation days, right? While weekends at Mt Hood are wonderful, midweek vacations are the real hidden gem. This is especially true now while more people have the ability to work remotely, and while a lot of employers are offering more flexibility to move working hours around. Here are the top reasons you should consider a midweek vacation to a beautiful mountain town like Mt Hood. 

#1 - Less Traffic Means More Vacation Time

Traffic can turn a 60 mile trip into a three plus hour drive. Make that round trip and you're clocking six to eight hours for a quick getaway. At that rate you've already blown through two half days that you could've spent hiking, skiing or relaxing in the hot tub at your private vacation cabin. When you plan a midweek vacation to Mt Hood you'll cut down on your driving time significantly, so you can spend more time vacationing and less time staring at the bumper in front of you.

#2 - Less People Means More Room to Explore

We're all looking for less crowded places lately, and midweek at Mt Hood is the ideal spot. You'll enjoy less crowds, more space and plenty of fresh mountain air - whether it be cross country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing or hiking. You can take your time on trails and soak in the views. Enjoy a quieter experience and get more nature. You can't beat midweek if you're really looking to take a break and connect with nature. Get your socially distanced vacation right when you choose midweek at Mt Hood.

#3 - Less Visitors Means Your Choice of the Best Cabins

How many times have you found the perfect cabin only to look at the calendar and find that your dates are taken? Vacation rentals book out fast for weekends at Mt Hood, but that perfect vacation rental can be yours if you come midweek instead. You don't have to be shy with your midweek vacation rental search - go for everything you want: private home, hot tub, pet friendly... you name it!

What's not to love about getting more for less? Prices throughout Mt Hood are lower during the week than they are on weekends.

Lift ticket prices may cost around $129 on peak weekends, but you can ski those same runs for $99 midweek or even $69 if you ski a half day starting at noon. Spend less money on your vacation rental, lift tickets, and other activities and put more in your piggy bank for your next adventure.
