Cooper Spur Ski Area, Oregon

Family Fun

Cooper Spur Ski and Recreation Resort is located on the northeast side of Mt Hood in the Northern Cascades at a base elevation of 4,000 feet.

This family area has been in operation since 1927 when it was developed as a ski jumping hill. In 1938, the first rope tow was installed, followed by a T-bar a few years later. In 1970, the rope tow and T-bar were upgraded and again in 1993.

There are 50 skiable acres catering to families and beginners. Most of the runs are gentle slopes, perfect for learning a wedge.

Lots of acres are lighted for night skiing, and you can ski free at night with the purchase of a complete ski or snowboard rental. Kids 6 years and younger ski free any time when accompanied by a ticketed parent.

The day lodge is warm and cozy and is partially heated by a wood stove. Parents can watch their children from the warmth of indoors.

Cooper Spur also offers a tubing hill for those who do not ski, making it a perfect place for the whole family.

Cooper Spur is easy to get to from Portland via I-84, located 27 miles south of Hood River just off Highway 35.
