We are at the same address 88786 E Government Camp Loop Rd in the Palmer Lodge, we just took over the main floor of the Lodge. We received our liquor license on December 4, 2013.


We have expanded our menu to include many more homemade traditional items such as Chile Rellenos made from Pablano peppers, Chicken Enchiladas with New Mexico red sauce. We have daily specials like beef fajitas. We also have fire roasted red salsa and and house roasted spicy Green New Mexico Hatch chile, with our homemade chips.

We also have on Sunday's, Caldo de Pollo, a large bowl of clear broth chicken soup with rice, chicken and 1/2 an avocado with cilantro, onions, chopped serano chili peepers and lime served on the side, my favorite.


We have a large vegetarian, vegan and gluten free selection as well featuring our Ultimate Veggie burrito that's as big as your head.

Introducing the first annual

Mt. Hood Passport

Proceeds benefit PACRAT & Northwest Ski Club Council


Available in December - $10 each,  while supplies last.

Receive special promotions all winter season long from restaurants, lodging, retail and ski and then get in the grand prize drawing at end of the season!


How it works: Visit participating businesses, proceed with a purchase or instruction on how to get the stamp. Many businesses will give you options of what promotion you can obtain, then get your one stamp. You may earn more stamps per page by using the Passport multiple times at one business if they offer more than one promotion. Only one stamp per page is required to complete the Passport and return it for the drawing at the Rat Attack and be eligible for many prizes at the end of the season.

Prior to PACRAT’s Rat Attack in April 2015, return your stamped Passport back to Barb Pressentin or any board member of PACRAT/NWSCC for the big drawing with many prizes, including gift packages from participating businesses, or PACRAT fees for next season.

The Passport will offer over $300 in discounts/promotions. The price is only $10 this year. Plus over $500 in prizes will be given for those who receive all their page stamps and enter the drawing.  See a sample passport here.

Order ahead or purchase the Mt. Hood Passport next month: Contact Barb at 503-267-9522, e-mail: bp2ski@gmail.com to order the Passport ahead of time. Limited supply.


Purchase Mt Hood Passports at the PACRAT bib pick up, at the General NWSCC December 17 Meeting, and at NASTAR/PACRAT Races until sold out.  Clubs or group orders can also be made with a volume discount.

This is a Trifecta Win! Businesses will enjoy the direct business, the passport holders will receive numerous discounts and promotions, and the NWSCC and PACRAT will receive the proceeds.

Powder Cord Pouch (New)


The best way to keep your powder cords on you.  The easiest, fastest way to put them on and take them off, especially when you have to do it frequently, as in snowcat or heli-skiing. The powder cords always remain in the pouch.  All you have to do is strap the pouch on and off.


Made in Eugene, Oregon, from top quality materials. Adjustable straps. One size fits all.


List price per pair, without cords: $24.95

List price per pair, with powder cords:  $34.95

Powder cords alone:  $10.00.


Over 40% discount if you order 10 or more.


The powder cords are bar tacked at one end, and have a swivel hook triple cross-stitched at the other end (for attaching to the ski). They also include a 1" tempered steel split ring, for quicker snapping onto the ski.

For more info, more photos, an instruction video, and to place an order, go to:


Note: This is from Tom Arnold, whom some of you may remember from our Sunny South Oregon bus trip in 2008.  We will also see Tom on our Crystal Mt. trip in March 2009.
