Mount Hood is an active stratovolcano in northern Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. and is located about 60 miles (100 km) east of the city of Portland. Its snow-covered peak rises on the border between Clackamas and Hood River counties. It is the highest mountain in Oregon and the fourth-highest in the Cascade Range. It can be seen easily from both Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington.

Mount Hood is second only to Japan's Mt. Fuji in the number of climbers reaching the summit. It is part of the Mount Hood National Forest, which has 1.2 million acres (4,900 kmē), four designated wilderness areas and more than 1,900 km (1,200 mi) of hiking trails. The popularity and relative ease of the climb has led to some carelessness and tragedies, especially climbers in late-spring when the glaciers tend to soften. Avalanches haven taken their toll from time to time. And in a partly live-televised incident on May 30, 2002, several climbers were killed and others injured when they fell into a crevasse in the "hogsback" that connects the crater rock with the summit ridge. Most unusual was the startling crash-and-roll of a rescue helicopter whose rotors clipped the sloping ice bridge.

The mountain has five ski areas, including the only ski area in North America that's open 12 months of the year. Timberline Lodge is a National Historic Landmark located on the southern flank of Mt. Hood. The Palmer Glacier, uphill from the lodge at about the 8,000 foot level, has been used for summer practice by the Olympic skiing team from time to time. The other areas are Mt. Hood Meadows, Ski Bowl, Cooper Spur, and Ski Bunny.
