Timberline Lodge - Oregon

The Timberline Mountain Operations Team is working hard to get our Palmer Chairlift up and running for the spring and summer season. We have a tentative opening planned for this weekend! With Palmer and our new Jeff Flood Express / Still Creek Basin chair open, we'll offer 3,690 vertical feet of some of the most scenic skiing and riding in Oregon.

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
We'll keep the Jeff Flood Express open as long as conditions permit until the end of the winter/spring season which ends May 26, 2008. With the latest storms, and the amount of snow we already have on the ground, things are looking good to keep it open for the rest of the season

Time for planning summer camps or summer free skiing

Alpine Meadows- Ca

Don't miss the Mad Cow Downhill May 4
Mad Cow Downhill a epic spring event at Lake Tahoe
The Mad Cow Downhill is a no-holds barred race to the finish. The race will begin promptly when the general public skier's and rider's are off the hill. There are two classes for this event: Skiing & Boarding; sorry, if you are a mono-skier, your racing with the skiers. This event seperates the men from the boys. But, we would love to see the ladies participate. Each class will be racing towards the finish line to be the first to grab an Alpine midweek season pass. If you don't grab it, it's not yours! Sign-ups will be on the Sun Deck, helmets are required, and you must sign a release. If you are underage, your folks need to sign. For more info, call: 530.581.8210
