(Ages 10+ welcome) Strap into some snowshoes and explore a Strato-Volcano like never before! This experience gets up-close and personal to the snow covered vistas and bluffs of Mt. Hood, while snowshoeing and exploring the serene Trillium Lake. During the hike we will snowshoe through silent old growth forest, and travel right up to the lakes frozen edge. Here we will rest as guests can take breathtaking photos of the lake with Mt. Hood as the backdrop, before snowshoeing back to the trailhead. After our snowy adventure we will cruise a short distance into Government Camp, the highest elevation community on Mt. Hood. Here guests have the opportunity to grab some grub and a good drink at the decades old Mt. Hood Brewing Company (all ages welcome). After guests have satisfied their appetites, we will travel back to Portland.
Manuel & Nate
Manuel and Nate are lifelong locals who’ve spent their lives exploring the natural world and advancing their skills in the backcountry. They took this passion to new heights by studying Earth and Environmental Science at WSU, and obtaining medical certifications in Wilderness First Response. Together, they founded Stök Outfitters with the goal of providing a safe, fun and informative bridge between city life and the great outdoors for members of all socioeconomic backgrounds and physical abilities, with emphasis on underrepresented groups. We believe that mankind’s love for nature transcends all social and political biases, and that we are strengthened through our diversity. We welcome all those who seek to draw closer to our wildlands and wish to enrich their lives through adventure and exploration. Let us put the Stök in your adventure!
