If you are travelling to the Pacific Northwest in the Winter, note that it doesn’t snow a whole lot around the Portland – Vancouver area but it does get a lot of rain. The rain comes and washes of the snow in a couple of days after a snowfall so it doesn’t get too messy. If you don’t like visiting a place during the rains, you might want to plan your trip this side in the summer or look up the forecasts for those few sunny days that punctuate the rainy winter season that these parts are known for.
