Are the roads safe to drive between Government Camp and Mt Hood Village in winter in the evening? what is the incline like between two villages. Is it worth staying in Mt Hood Village if wanting to dine in Government Camp? Where is the snowline?
Plenty of ice and snow driving experience but wanting to get an idea of road conditions in winter and if locals drive for dinner.
Trying to avoid repeating lodging mistake as I did for South Lake Tahoe CA/Minden NV where locals don't cross mountain at night. 17 miles was misleading.
