Timberline is the only ski area in North America open all 12 months of the year. We’ve got 3,690 vertical feet…more than anybody else in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. We’re located near the top of an 11,245-foot volcano…the tallest mountain in Oregon. Go ahead. Enjoy the stats. Then get up here and enjoy the ride.

Season Season
Turns All Year

Timberline offers the longest ski season in North America. The winter season typically begins early to mid-November and continues through Memorial Day. Our Palmer Express high-speed quad lift allows us to operate later into the summer season than anyone else (usually June 1st through Labor Day).

Many years, we’re open for fall skiing as well (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in September and October, snow permitting). Palmer Express operates in the Spring and Summer seasons only. During winter months, we offer snowcat rides to the top of Palmer when weather permits.

Terrain Parks
Terrain Park Winter
timberline terrain parks

In search of the best parks on Mt. Hood? Look no further. Timberline maintains multiple terrain parks throughout the year with enough jibs, jumps and pipes to keep even the hardest of the hardcore happy. Timberline was a freestyle leader from the start. Back in the day, Palmer Snowfield was a testing ground for many of the types of features now seen in freestyle terrain parks around the globe.

Freestyle Terrain may contain jumps, hits, ramps, banks, fun boxes, jibs, rails, halfpipes, quarterpipes, snowcross, bump terrain and other constructed or natural terrain features. PRIOR to using Freestyle Terrain, you are responsible for familiarizing yourself with Freestyle Terrain and obeying all instructions, warnings and signs. Freestyle skills require maintaining control on the ground, and in the air. Stay educated on all safety information and spread the knowledge.

During the summer months, our freestyle terrain parks move up the mountain to follow the snowpack. In the early to mid summer, we build a park in what’s known as the Mile Canyon that is accessible via our Magic Mile Chairlift. Later in the summer, we move again up to the Palmer snowfield. There are no ‘small’ features in these parks, and they are recommended for advanced skill level skiers and riders only. Please observe all posted signage, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask a member of our staff.
