Great road going up to Mt Hood. Busy with summer ski camps. Inside main lounge in lodge is beautiful with high ceilings and wall high fireplace. Outside chairs great place to sit and look up and try and spot skiers way up on Hood. I would recommend getting a drink or coffee and doing this for a half hour when... More

This is a 'must visit' if you are into historic lodges. It has a small museum and short film that explains the development in the mid -1930's of the lodge. Local workmen and women constructed from local timber and supplies: the lodge, its furniture, art for about 90 cents an hour under a Depression era public works program. The murals,... More

Beautiful drive up to Timberline in June. If you're expecting a quite secluded mountain lodge, you'll be surprised to find it surrounded by skiing and snowboarding, so lots of cars, etc. It is really beautiful though, with neat exhibits about the WPA folks who built it. If you want to stay here, plan a year ahead.

Amazing architectural feat from depression era. The structure has almost a medieval feel to it, super timbers, wrought iron and stone compose the main structure. The rooms are cozy, clean quaint and afford amazing views of Mt. Hood. The staff is friendly, informative and polite. The on site restaurants are noteworthy themselves. They tend to be more adult oriented as... More

Wow. To say Timberline Lodge Ski Area has spectacular views would be an understatement. It's always a thrill for me to ski the glacier with majestic Mt. Hood in the background. As far as the skiing goes, expect fast lifts and long runs, most of which are very intermediate. Tip- don't miss having an après ski beverage at Timberline Lodge.... More

Very nice resort. Runs were long and nice for the family. Price was a bit high, but cheaper than Mt. Hood Meadows. High speed quads get you up the mountain in a hurry.

We had such a good time. We played ping pong, walked the kids all around the lodge in the snow. The dogs were not on property but that was understandable. We had great food in the Blue Ox bar - it was so fun!

Even though the snow wasn't great my first day here, I was blown away by the view. I was fortunate that the weather was calm enough that even the top lift to Palmer Glacier was open and I was able to do a few runs before the snow got too icy. The second day there were several inches of new... More

Took our grandchildren to the mountain and everyone was helpful getting them on the ski lift (first timers). They are still talking about their day on the mountain.
