2020/2021 Winter Season Operational Plans
SKI AREA RESERVATIONS - DISCONTINUED
Starting Saturday, Nov. 28th, reservations will not be required to ski and ride at Timberline. We knew this winter season would pose difficult and interesting challenges and that we'd have to make adjustments on the fly. The reservations system wasn't the best solution to manage capacity, and we recognize that.
Capacity will still be managed based on how many cars our parking lot is able to safely accommodate, first-come-first-served. However, our uphill ski area capacity far exceeds the number of parking spots. When the lot is at a safe operating capacity, Timberline Rd. will close. People will be allowed up when spaces become available. Please plan on arriving after 7am when the roads are plowed, but well before 9am to gain access before the road closes. Anticipate capacity to free up in the afternoons when people often leave after a morning of skiing.
Timberline has been working hard on winter operation plans, building on what we learned from our spring and summer ski seasons, while collaborating in an industry wide safety and operational effort driven by the National Ski Areas Association's Ski Well, Be Well Program. This winter, it is our goal to deliver quality customer service in a healthy environment. You will undoubtedly notice a change in our operations, these are necessary to move forward and offer everyone the opportunity to get back on Mt. Hood snow.
