Wiwnu Wash Tribal Heritage Center

Kirk Hanna and Mt Hood Skibowl have invited members of the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs back to their native grounds at the resort. In doing so he has offered up the Outback Lodge to become the Wiwnu Wash Tribal Heritage Center to showcase the ancestry and history of the tribal members and their families that had spent much time traveling, playing, picking huckleberries, hunting and gathering supplies on the land that is now Mt Hood Skibowl. Displays of baskets and other items of their culture and heritage are now displayed in the lodge. Located in the base area of Mt. Hood Skibowl, the Wiwnu Wash Lodge (Warm Springs Tribe language for 'place of the Huckleberry) looks out at the Lower and Upper Bowls.

The members of the Cultural and Heritage Department for the Warm Springs and Mt Hood Skibowl annually host a pow wow and cultural celebration at Mt Hood Skibowl. At each event Kirk Hanna continues to welcome back the tribal members to their lands and honor them during the celebration.

Featuring vaulted ceilings,  the Wiwnu Wash Lodge offers  936 square feet of meeting space and  can accommodate groups up to 75.
