Suite Shuttle Packages!

Classic Post Canyon!
While patiently waiting for spring to show up here in the Pacific Northwest, we've been busy putting together some pretty amazing tour and shuttle packages based in Hood River. We're taking advantage of our proximity to the Post Canyon playground, and partnering with one of the most scenic (and affordable!) accommodations providers in the Gorge, the Vagabond Lodge, to offer weekend sleep n' shred packages this season.

Mike Estes, dedicated Post Canyon aficionado and trail builder, and skilled mountain biker, is the caretaker at the Vagabond Lodge. When not booking rooms and taking care of guests, Mike can be found building trails, stunts, pump tracks and other fun elements in Post Canyon, and competing in Downhill mountain bike races. We are excited to team up with Estes to put together some pretty amazing packages for riders who want to visit Post Canyon but don't want to bother with multiple vehicles to get their laps in on all the sweet terrain the place has to offer.

View from the Vagabond
Spending the night or weekend in the Gorge is the perfect way to explore Post and all of the other classic trails in the area. These Suite Shuttle packages make it affordable for all riders to visit Hood River, and ride till their heart's content. Here is a sampling of what some of our packages are going to look like for the 2011 season:
  • Six people, one room -- starting at $49 per night -- $58 for a suite.
  • Six people, two rooms -- starting at $61 per night -- $77 for two suites.
  • Six people, three rooms -- starting at $71 per night.
Prices are per person and include two shuttle rides to the top of Post Canyon, provided by Hermosa Tours.

Options for view and non-view room, larger rooms and suites are available and priced accordingly. Prices are approximate based on nominal options. You'll want to plan and make your reservation early because the Vagabond can fill up fast!

Just when you thought a mountain biking weekend in Hood River couldn't get any better, you'll be psyched to know about the White Buffalo Wine Bar and Bistro. Because it's located just steps away from the Vagabond, you can stumble in from a long day of riding, cool off with a cold one or sample any number of Gorge and other wines from around the world, and fill up on delicious food-- all without having to drive anywhere!

Food, Drink, and Fun at the White Buffalo!

Let the sun shine and the shredding begin!
