Non racers can enjoy the over 20 attractions at the Adventure Park during their weekend stay.
The Mt. Hood Adventure Park at Skibowl was one of the first areas in the nation to provide lift assisted mountain biking. That tradition continues today, 28 years later, with miles of trails accessed by two chairlifts. Bike and helmet rentals are available on site.
