Compared to Mt. Hood Meadows, the lines are always shorter and the runs less crowded. Of course, there are fewer runs and fewer lifts. My family and I have found this year at Timberline to be just an easier experience overall than MHM. The staff...More
We were fortunate to get a ton of fresh powder at Timberline this weekend. Mt Hood did not disappoint! The blue and green trails are nice and wide with lots of opportunity for riding through the trees and trying some side jumps. Chairlifts were efficient...More
It is stunning and the an absolutely joy to get out of the car and look at the summit of Mt Hood. We went on Christmas Day and couldn't believe how perfect the skiing was, it was uncrowded on the most perfect clear day. The...More
We had a mixed day where it was raining at the bottom of the hill and snowing like crazy at the top. That could be common there, but not in PA where I’m from :-). Despite the weather we had a blast! I want to...More
They will give you what you ask for, but you have to know what that is. As a beginner adult, I didn't know what I needed to rent, how to find the green runs, etc. Another customer took pity and helped me when I was...More
Wait, it's 2018 and I have to pull my ski pass out for the line attendant to scan? Really?
It's not just annoying to stop and futz, isn't the lanyard around my neck holding my pass just the sort of loose clothing the safety signs...More
There’s no way you will miss seeing Mt. Hood from Portland, but nothing beats experiencing the real deal from the Timberline Lodge.
The hotel is amazing, try to book reservations directly through the hotel and you will be surprised of the great special offers.
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
Hey, good for you, going skiing with your kids. I learned to ski at Government Camp in about 1952 and now ski with my grown kids and grandkids all over the place. Great family sport! Wherever you wind up go to ski school... More
Hey, good for you, going skiing with your kids. I learned to ski at Government Camp in about 1952 and now ski with my grown kids and grandkids all over the place. Great family sport! Wherever you wind up go to ski school. Ski instruction in the US is highly standardized and generally excellent, especially for beginners.
Govy, as we call it, has condos good for a family. The general store in town is well-stocked and actually pretty reasonable and be sure to try the huckleberry pie at Huckleberrys.
Ski in ski out is always good if you don't have a car with AWD, such as a Subaru, (best snow cars ever. I don't even carry chains anymore) and are not comfortable driving in the snow.
For clothing, I'm betting, Portland has big Labor Day or other fall sales full of stylish bargains just like we do in Seattle. For your skis boots and poles, best to rent them in town. The rental shop at Timberline is excellent, but will be crowded when you go.
Have a great time and think snow.

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.
