OREGON: Timberline Ski Resort Reopening Tomorrow


Excellent news for all you Oregon skiers and snowboarders…Timberline is reopening tomorrow under strict protocols to promote safe alpine recreation during the COVID-19 pandemic. One notable suggestion from Timberline is discouraging beginners from coming out to enjoy the slopes. Here’s the reasoning:
“In order to minimize injuries and incidents, Timberline recommends only skilled skiers and riders visit. It is imperative guests ski and ride safely. Enjoy the ski area, but this is the time for restraint.”

If you’re planning to make the trip to Timberline, make sure to read the guidelines carefully and be prepared for full compliance. Be safe, Be patient. Have Fun.



Positivity, supporting each other and working for the greater good are at Timberline’s core. Timberline was born from the Great Depression as a response and need to heal: creating jobs, mending communities and bringing back a sense of purpose to a fractured society. It is with this ethos of creation, healing and purpose that we move forward with a limited ski area re-opening and modified hotel operations.

Timberline would like to welcome our guests back and say thank you to loyal pass holders, skiers and riders with a genuine intention to deliberately and responsibly offer much needed relief through outdoor recreation.

The online reservation process includes a Covid questionnaire.

During this initial phase of re-opening, ski area capacity will be limited by a daily reservation allotment. Reservations cannot be made more than 24 hours in advance and are distributed on a first-come-first-served basis. Operations may be limited or modified at any time in response to changing circumstances. There will be absolutely no refunds or rain checks.

The ski area will be open from 9am-3pm, weather permitting.

Upon your arrival at Timberline, there will be a mandatory Check Point stop. Please do not arrive at the Check Point before 8am. A Timberline representative will confirm your reservation, provide ski area access instructions and dashboard display documentation, and then direct you to the main parking lot.

A Timberline parking attendant will help with all parking. Please note, parking will not be allowed in the “shop” lot or “crescent”.

Lift lines will be managed with 6’ social distancing. Skiers and riders will be required to wear glasses or goggles, masks and gloves. You may ride the chairlifts with those you came with, ride single or ride double on opposite sides of the chair. It will be the guests’ responsibility to ride the chairlift however they feel comfortable. Simply notify the lift attendant of your intentions and Timberline will accommodate.
