For only $2 (or just $1.50 if you prepay for 20 tickets), you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or Timberline. Catch the bus right on Hwy. 26, at a park and ride bus stop half way between Champion Way and 362nd (which is the Fred Meyer traffic light in Sandy). Turn into Champion Way to park at the Information Center.  The most convenient bus starts at 7:45 am and arrives at Skibowl at 8:32 and at Timberline at 9 am. Click here for the complete schedule.

 

Also note that Timberline runs its own shuttle between Government Camp from  the Summit Pass ski area to Timberline.

The annual Heritage Night at the Museum is an annual silent auction fundraiser for the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum. Wine and hors d'oeuvres. The event is free to members of the Museum, or memberships will be sold at the door starting at $20 for an individual membership, $40 for family, etc.


The Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum is kicking off the winter season with their annual, evening fundraiser on Saturday, November 5, 2022, 6:00-10:00 p.m.


This fun evening includes food, beverages, a silent auction, a live auction, and awards.

An annual membership ($20 per individual, $40 per family) is your admission ticket. By renewing your membership, prior to Heritage Night, you can avoid waiting in line for admission, on November 5.

An online auction will also be available from Monday, October 31 through Monday, November 7, 2022. There is no charge to register and view items. To participate and bid, login to the museum website: https://mthoodmuseum.org and click on the Events tab.

Museum events, private donations and museum memberships are the basis for the MHCCM operating budget. You’re invited to have fun keeping this community treasure operational by purchasing a membership as your entrance ticket, bid on the wide variety of offerings, catch up with long-time friends and make new ones.

By attending, you’ll support this vital part of the community which has always focused on showcasing every aspect of the history and culture of Mt. Hood.

Alene Davis, President of the MHCCM Board, has this to say. "Each year I’m impressed by how much fun everyone has at the annual Heritage Night! The food and drinks are delicious, the folks who come and the folks who run the event are all in the best of spirits. The night is our most important fundraising event of the year. I hope to see both old and new faces at Heritage Night 2022. Mark your calendar early and join the fun!"
