The Longest Ski and Snowboarding Season In North America: Timberline, Mt. Hood
For all you diehard skiers and boarders, Timberline, Mt. Hood is the ultimate destination. Located less than an hour from Hood River and Portland, two ski lifts, The Magic Mile and the Palmer, are open year round, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., as are the Otto Lang and Mile Halfpipe terrain parks. The top of the resort gets an average of 745 inches of snow a year! If skiing isn't your thing, you can't beat Timberline as a hiking and mountain biking destination.
