Put a 2-6-person team together or tackle the whole thing yourself; it's an epic journey from Mount Hood to Hood River by ski, bike, foot and paddle. Similar to Bend's Pole Pedal Paddle, but up on Hood instead.

The snow has returned for 2016, so this year's Hood 2 River Relay Race should feature all six components of alpine racing, Nordic skiing, mountain biking, road biking, running and paddling. The race date is set for Saturday, June 4, 2016 and the festivities begin at Mt. Hood Meadows at 10:30 am and ends with an after-event party sponsored by Full Sail Brewing on the Hood River waterfront.

Sounds fun.
