DISCOVER MT. HOOD’S HIDDEN TREASURES WITH A
HIGH-TECH GAME OF HIDE-AND-SEEK
The Resort at The Mountain introduces a geocaching adventure package
WELCHES (Mt. Hood), Ore. – (June. 29, 2010) – – The Resort at The Mountain (The Resort), a premiere golf, spa and ski destination located on the western slope of Mt. Hood, is pleased to announce a new geocaching package for adventurers and explorers of all ages.
The Hide & Seek – A Geocaching Adventure package includes a list of 25 geocaching waypoints within a three mile radius of The Resort, two logo items to place in caches, and overnight accommodations in a spacious guestroom to rest following a day of geocaching adventures.
“The Resort’s picturesque Mt. Hood setting and close proximity to a variety of caches makes it an ideal choice for both experienced and first-time geocachers,” said Frank Casarez, general manager of The Resort. “Geocaching gives people a new and fun way to explore and discover the spectacular scenery of the Mt. Hood Territory.”
Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt where participants use GPS coordinates to discover hidden containers with a logbook inside showing the cache’s origin, who has found it and what has been left there in the past. Many caches also contain souvenirs that the discoverer can take, but should replace with an item of equal or greater value for the next geocacher to find. There are more than one million geocaches in the world, and 25 of these are located within a three mile radius of The Resort.
Geocaching guests can also enjoy all of The Resort’s recreational activities and amenities, including access to the fitness center, game room, tennis and badminton courts and outdoor heated swimming pool.
The “Hide & Seek – A Geocaching Adventure” package starts at $134 per night, excluding resort fee, and is available now through Sept. 11, 2010. Picnic basket lunches can be added to the package for a minimal charge. For more information or to make a reservation, visit http://www.TheResort.com or call (877) 439-6774.
