The ski season at Timberline is long... really, really long. On typical snow years, we're able to operate our lifts 7-days a week through Labor Day! We’ve got 3,690 vertical feet from the top of our Palmer Lift to the bottom of the Jeff Flood Express — enough to make even the most fit legs burn on those days when we're able to open up all of the terrain*. We’re located near the top of an 11,245-foot volcano—the tallest mountain in all of Oregon. Go ahead. Enjoy the stats. But then get up here and enjoy the ride.
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). For up-to-date hours of operation, call our Sno Phone at 503-222-2211, or view our conditions page.
*The Palmer lift operates in the Spring and Summer seasons only. During the winter months, we offer snowcat rides to the top of Palmer when weather permits.
