2000 UCGIS Summer Assembly

The Resort at the Mountain
hosted by
Oregon State University

We met in the beautiful Salmon River Valley, the "Scottish Highlands of Oregon," at The Resort at the Mountain (hereafter referred to as "The Resort"). The Resort is conveniently located just 45 minutes east of Portland on the western slope of Mt. Hood.

The Resort features 160 deluxe accomodation rooms (many with fireplaces), gorgeous scenery and clean mountain air, as well as a unique Scottish feel throughout. It will be a great venue for the Summer Assembly with over 15,000 square feet of flexible meeting and banquet space, all at very reasonable group rates.

Surrounded by the Mt. Hood National Forest, The Resort offers a multitude of on-site activities, from golfing & croquet to relaxing in front of a roaring fireplace... from fly fishing to boutique shopping. There is also a fitness center, an outdoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi. Nearby fun includes summer skiing on Mt. Hood, mountain biking, hiking, birdwatching, go-cart racing, and whitewater rafting, to name just a few.

Q: Why not the famous Timberline Lodge (national landmark and filming site of famous movies)?
A: Not nearly enough guest rooms and meeting space.

Q: Why not the lovely Oregon Coast?
A: The Oregon coast, although very lovely indeed, can also be cold, windy, and foggy at this time of the year. Conditions don't normally improve until late August or September. Also, it takes several hours from the major airports to get to the spots on the coast that we would have chosen.
