Timberline Lodge on Mt Hood

Timberline invites you to explore the new Still Creek Basin! We are opening the lower portion of our permitted ski area that lies between the Pucci chairlift and the Stormin' Norman chairlift. This new network of ski trails is the largest and most exciting development of new Timberline terrain since the 1970's. There is something new for skiers and riders of every ability level, and lots of new areas to explore!

Still Creek Basin contains 8 new alpine trails will provide connectivity to existing terrain, making our trail system on the lower mountain longer, more fun, and more sheltered from the weather. The cumulative linear feet of new trails equals 5.8 miles, and the new Kruser trail is now our longest trail at roughly 1.5 miles. Other new trails include Mustang Sally, JoJaMi, Brother Beau, Waterline, Buzz Cut, and Uncle Jon's Band. This area also offers new opportunities to explore natural terrain features. Chutes, glades, and tree skiing areas abound in the Still Creek Basin!

Still Creek Basin also brings a new opportunity at Timberline for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. The Snowshoe Trail, a brand new trail from Timberline Lodge, through the woods, to the bottom of the new chairlift, provides a new Nordic experience and gives users the option of continuing downhill to the town of Government Camp via a connection with the West Leg Road, or an uphill return to the Lodge on the new Jeff Flood Express. Single ride lift tickets, sold for just $12, are now offered to cross country skiers and snowshoers. Bring your own equipment, or rent from us in the Wy'East Day Lodge.

Timberline just got a whole lot bigger. Opening the Still Creek Basin terrain adds roughly 220 acres of terrain to our lower mountain. That's 58% more lower mountain terrain than we had before! This provides you with lots of freedom to move about the ski area, and with the new Jeff Flood Express chairlift, capacity and ample uphill transportation is not a problem at Timberline. In fact, it is a luxury. A new chairlift, new trails and wide open spaces, means and a lot less crowding on the slopes, and more time skiing and riding. Timberline is your alternative to crowded slopes!

The new Jeff Flood Express chairlift is named for a special, longtime Timberline employee. As Timberline's head snow groomer for many years, "Floodo" took great pride in laying down the corduroy and making sure the slopes were in top form every day. He also was known as a pioneer of shaping freestyle terrain. His innovation and hard work went on to be appreciated by the growing snowboard industry as well as some of the world's top athletes, when Jeff was asked to be on the slope grooming team for both the Winter Olympics and the Winter X Games. At 6,270 feet long (roughly 1.2 miles) the new Doppelmayr quad chairlift named in his honor is now the longest chairlift on Mt. Hood, and yet, this state-of-the-art high speed lift will whisk you from bottom to top in just a little over 6 minutes

Back by popular demand, the Fusion Pass gives you full lift access for the entire winter season at two great ski areas - Timberline AND Mt. Hood Skibowl
