weather and road conditions
National Weather Service: Zone forecast for the northern Oregon Cascades, tells elevation where snow is expected to fall. To find the weather conditions and forecast at a specific location, enter the latitude and longitude in the search field or click directly on the map.
TripCheck: ODOT Road cameras, traffic incidents and delays, and travel times. The cameras at Zigzag, Government Camp, and Frog Lake are helpful for showing current road and weather conditions, including how much snow is on the ground.
Timberline Lodge: Live camera and conditions at Timberline.
Northwest Avalanche Center: Avalanche forecast for Mt Hood. While avalanches are not a concern for many of our cameras, if you are ever traveling close to or above tree line, please check the avalanche forecast and be "avalanche-aware."
