An amazing place everyone should visit at least once. For skiers there are many runs for many skill levels, full equipment rental, lessons, etc. See my full review listed for Timberline Lodge.

We came up to the Timberline Lodge to get pictures of and see Mt. Hood close up. It is beautiful! We then found out you can actually ride the ski lift to go up onto the mountain. It was August when we went and there...More

We rode the Magic Mile Ski lift up and hiked back down. It was fun to watch people skiing - and made me a little jealous that I didn't have my skis along. We also grabbed a glass of wine at the bar and sat...More

Stayed two nights in June. Weather helped, I'm sure, but had a great time at Timberline Lodge. Rode the lift up to 7000 and hike to 8000 to get some great pictures. We used the pool and the hot tub (clean and well maintained). If...More

The area itself is not that great, but the summer skiing is the best. The Palmer glacier, snowfield really, is the major training center for US ski racers and snow boarders.

The Lodge has an area in main entrance area to sign up for tours. The tour is free and is very interesting. I think they go at 1 p.m. and maybe another time. You can call the lodge for information.

In August, at midday, it is often in the 70's. However, temperature drops at night and early morning to 40's, so bring layers. And occasionally a cloudy, windy day sets in during summer, with daytime temp of 50-60 deg.
