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.
Top 10 Terrain Parks
Timberline named one of Freeskier Magazine’s Top 10 Terrain Parks in North America 2015.
#7 “Timberline, on Mt. Hood, boasts one of the longest seasons of any ski resort. The parks, packed with awesome jibs and mid-sized jumps, are situated down low in the early season, and as the snow melts at lower elevations, the features are moved up the hill, ultimately settling on the Palmer Snowfield—where you can shred most of the summer.”
Timberline named one of Freeskier Magazine’s Top 10 Terrain Parks in the West 2016.
#8 “The public park on Palmer Snowfield is a classic summer shred staple, but don’t count them out for the rest of the season. Four parks, catering to a multitude of skill levels, contain a variety of jibs and jumps to keep you satisfied all year long.”
Winter Terrain Parks
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.
Summer Terrain Parks
During our 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.
