Snow all year on West Coast?

Like the title says.. I was wondering if there is any mountain here on the West Coast that stays with snow, all year long. I want to skip summer this year. haha

Portland would be the nearest larger city. There may be some smaller towns nearby.

Yea closest large city is Portland if you need work. If your just looking for places to squat in an apartment for a few months places like Sandy or Hood River are the closest cities to T-Line.

No way to know how good it will be this year though we havent had as much snow...but this is what it looked like in 2k7 which i also think was also a bad snow year

I believe Portland is only about an hour away, and you've got all the surrounding suburbs in the area, Gresham, Sandy, Government Camp, ect... just depends on how big of a city you want.

I've lived on the other side of Hood (over in Central Oregon) my whole life. If I were to move from Central Oregon and had to choose the Portland area would definitely be my pick! The only thing that would totally bum me out is all the darn rain

Depends where you live in Portland, if you live on the east side then yea an hour and a half, if you live on the west side 2 hours. It can get worse if traffic is bad.. If you lived in Sandy or Hood river you'd always be 30 minutes away lol..
