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
So this was the final stop for the mt hood express. I was surprised to see there were people still skiing or boarding here. I did a quick walkthrough of the ski lodge which had typical gift store, cafeteria, guest services, ski rental shop. During...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
We've spent many days skiing at Timberline this year, and I can't say enough good things! Plenty of intermediate trails for our younger skiers. I did not hear one word of profanity, very welcoming and friendly staff, efficiency getting tickets and no lift lines to...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.
