Timberline Lodge
Doppelmayr USA, are working with a crew from Timberline Lodge to install a new 6700 foot long high-speed quad chairlift. The new chairlift will be named the Jeff Flood Still Creek Basin Chairlift
8 new trails were cleared in the summer of 2006. An additional trail for snowshoeing and Nordic skiing is being cleared this summer. When complete, the new lift will be the longest chairlift on Mt. Hood, and will whisk riders from the bottom to top in just a little over 6 minutes. The chairlift will access approximately 220 acres of new terrain in the Still Creek Basin of Timberline's permit area. This will be the first new terrain at Timberline since 1981, giving skiers and snowboarders exciting new opportunities to explore the slopes.

The warm weather over the past couple of weeks has taken a toll on the snow conditions on the Palmer Snowfield. We've made the decision to keep the lifts closed after our current maintenance period until the snow begins to fly this winter. While this is a decision that's tough for us to make, we want to ensure that our guests have a great experience when they come to Timberline - and snow quality plays an important role in that. It's not uncommon to see storms drop snow on us in October and November. We'll be monitoring the conditions closely, and will look to re-open as soon as possible for the 2007-2008 Winter Season. Check our conditions page often for current updates. For now, enjoy the fall! Timberline Lodge will still be open for lodging, dining, and touring (including rides on our Magic Mile SkyRide). Don't forget, you'll be able to pick up your Fusion Pass beginning September 15th, so stop up for a visit and avoid the rush this winter

Every other year since 1977, Timberline Lodge, with help from The Friends of Timberline, has produced "Mountain High," a public art exhibit celebrating Timberline's connection to the arts and crafts. This year's theme for the show is "In The Shadow of Mt. Hood." It will celebrate the arts and crafts of local mountain residents. Starting October 3rd and running through October 23rd, numerous works from selected local artisans will be on display in the Lodge. Longtime Timberline Curator, Linny Adamson explains it this way. "This year, Mountain High will celebrate the creative spirit of our local artisans. We are celebrating the 70th anniversary of Timberline Lodge, and we were motivated to do this by the recent PBS program Craft In America. The exhibit will showcase the creative expression of our local artisans. It will be a pleasure to bring these pieces together for display in the beautiful Timberline Lodge, and it will provide another pleasurable experience for visitors to the Lodge this Fall."

Timberline boasts the Northwest's largest vertical terrain with 3,680 vertical feet from the top of Palmer to the bottom of Still Creek Basin.
