  • Oregon is famous for the ski slopes found around the

    state, and if you are planning a ski vacation, you

    should definitely consider Timberline Lodge, located

    near Mt. Hood in Oregon. There is quite a bit of

    history in the area, starting with the lodge that was

    built during the Great Depression by a master

    craftsman. The Timberline Lodge also has a bit of

    more recent history attached to it. Part of the movie,

    The Shining, was filmed here. Many of the 'outside'

    shots were done at Timberline Lodge.

    The lodge is entirely hand made, and well preserved.

    The hand woven draperies and the hand hewn beams

    add to the rustic charm and history of the place. The

    lodge sits in the middle of 1400 acres consisting of

    35 trails. The trails are perfect for beginners,

    intermediates, and experts. The top elevation at

    Timberline Lodge is 8504 with a vertical drop of 2501.

    There are six chair lifts to accommodate skiers.

    One of the most unique things about Timberline is

    that it is the one place in the United States that offers

    year-round snow skiing. Palmer Snowfield is part of

    the Timberline Resort, and it is permanently covered

    with snow. Beginners are not always allowed on

    Palmer snowfield - the conditions are considered

    each day when making this determination.Mt </ span> <span title="Hood Vacations" Oregon Ski Vacations Ski onmouseover="this.style.backgroundColor='#ebeff9'" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundColor=&#

    Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, snowshoeing, and

    lodge tours are the main attractions at Timberline.

    Here, it is all about the powder! Mt. Hood is an active

    volcano which is considered to be dormant.

    Occasionally, tremors are felt, and steam vents are

    often visible. The Cascade Dining Room is open for

    breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day, but the hours

    do change with the seasons. Other fare can be found

    at the Ram's Head Bar, the Blue Ox bar, the Wy'East

    Kitchen Cafeteria, the Market Café, and the Mt. Hood

    Brewing Company.

    Rental equipment is not available at Timberline. You

    must bring your own equipment. However, smaller

    items such as gloves and goggles can be purchased

    at the lodge, along with some clothing items. There is

    a snowboard and ski school on the premises, and

    private and group lessons are available.

    If the idea of a 'rustic' ski vacation appeals to you,

    as opposed to trips with accommodations that are a

    bit fancier, then Timberline Lodge in Oregon is the

    place to be! Again, it is definitely all about the history

    and the powder here. However, whether you ski or not,

    you must not miss the Magic Mile, which offers a

    panoramic view of the Cascade mountains that cannot

    be matched!
