Visitors can expect an explosion of colour in the autumn, with a fall leaves display to rival that of New England, while winters are mild, with plenty of snow at high elevations for skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding. For cherry blossom and a plethora of pretty blooms, head to Portland and Oregon in the spring. As for summer, this is the perfect time to get outdoors here.
