Mount Hood is a destination in the winter for snow activities, but not many realize there's an awesome adventure park to explore in the summer. One of our favorite summer attractions at Mt. Hood Skibowl is the half mile Dual Alpine Slide. This is the perfect summer adventure for family and friends, and a great opportunity to travel to the mountains.
The Pacific Northwest's Only Half Mile Dual Alpine Slide
The Dual Alpine Slide will send you flying down half a mile of track full of twists and turns through gorgeous mountain meadows. Because this slide has two side-by-side tracks, you can ride alongside your family and friends.
The Alpine Slide track is 2,640 feet long, and has a maximum speed of 37 miles per hour.

The average speed is 15-20 miles per hour as the alpine slide takes you down the mountain.
Guests start with a trip up the mountain on sky chairs, which offer a great view of the scenery.

Once at the top guests prepare for their roller coaster like ride down the mountain, and drop 350 feet over the half mile ride. Guests have brakes at their disposal so they can go as fast or as slow as they want down the track.
