About Us

The Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge Regional Tourism Alliance, also known as the Mt. Hood/Gorge RDMO, is managed through Clackamas County Tourism with regional leadership from The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce, Visit Hood River, Explore Troutdale, and Mt. Hood Territory. We seek to use responsible visitor management to build awareness for the region as a multi-day and year-round travel destination that benefits all communities. Our mission is to continuously and creatively address the challenges that come with being a mature destination that is surrounded by small communities and neighbors Oregon’s largest metro area. Challenges include congested roadways, over-visited sites, imbalance of visitation throughout all of our communities, and workforce development and training needs. By establishing regular feedback channels for us to learn from community and industry representatives we will be better equipped to design global marketing, PR, destination development and global sales tactics in order to address these complex challenges and convert them to opportunities.
