We provide helmets for all trips. If you have your own helmet that you prefer to wear, it must be one that is approved by the Department of Transportation (DOT). You cannot wear a ski or bike helmet while snowmobiling.
Mt Hood Outfitters is located in Government Camp and the city and all Sno-Parks are maintained by ODOT.
