White River Snow Park East Mt Hood

What a beautiful spot. We went up there to go sledding last weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day. The gentle slope of the land makes it easy for beginning cross country, Nordic skiers or snow shoes. White River Snow Park east is a big parking lot with bathrooms. Make sure that you buy a snow park parking permit before you get there. There are plenty of places to buy the snow park permit on the way up the mountain. After a fun time sledding I had a little tail gate party. I lighted up the gas stove, made hot water and served hot coco to the cold, tired sledders.
From Portland on Oregon Highway 35 approximately 4 miles north of US Highway 26 before you get to Mt Hood Meadows.

I noticed by Oregon Dept of transportation they allow snowmobiling @ white river east snow park. Is there a area for snowmobiles?
