As Oregon’s grandest peak, Mt. Hood Territory is home to three incredible and diverse ski resorts. Timberline Lodge & Ski Area is the only ski-in, ski-out lodge in the state, Mt. Hood Skibowl has the largest night skiing terrain in the United States and Summit Ski Area is the second-oldest continually operating ski area in the United States. 

Conveniently located 90 minutes from Portland International Airport, on Mt. Hood you can ski with locals, enjoy a beer at a craft brewery, spend the night in a mountain resort, follow snowshoe trails through old growth forests and experience what makes Oregon a truly special place.

Timberline Lodge & Ski Area boasts the Pacific Northwest’s largest vertical terrain with 3,690 vertical feet and some of the state’s most scenic skiing. Timberline maintains multiple terrain parks throughout the year with enough jibs, jumps and pipes to keep even the hardest of the hardcore happy. While Mt. Hood Skibowl has 65 total runs and a vertical drop of 1,500 feet, with two fully lit terrain parks drawing in every level of snow rider to enjoy.

Constructed in 1937, Timberline Lodge stands on the south slope of Mt. Hood at an elevation of 6,000 feet and is the only ski-in, ski-out lodge in Oregon. This beautiful National Historic Landmark is still being used for its original intent – a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for everyone to enjoy. 

Timberline Lodge has North America’s longest ski season with four-season skiing on the Palmer Snowfield. The terrain available for the public in summer is limited due to the ski and snowboard camps that train on Mt. Hood, but at least one lane is reserved for the public.
