Pet Friendly White River West Sno-Park
White River West Sno-Park White River West Sno-Park is one of Mount Hood's largest official sledding sites.

As well as enjoying the views, dogs and their owners can get out on one of the cross-country skiing or snow shoe trails. There's parking for 200 vehicles on site, so you should be able to find somewhere to park up, but to avoid the crowds during peak winter season, you and Fido should try to visit mid-week.
