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

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.

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.
