Timberline Lodge farms snow for summer skiing and snowboarding.

MOUNT HOOD, Oregon – Staying open throughout most of a summer, even if your in the high alpine, is not an easy task for any ski area. Most ski resorts close in late April/early May, with a few occasionally hanging on until June. But Timberline Lodge keeps the party going as late as they possibly can, typically through August. How do they do it? By farming snow, of course!

Timberline Lodge‘s Palmer Snowfield will remain open for summer camps and for public use as late as they can possibly keep it open (again, typically until September). Access to skiing and snowboarding on Palmer and the public park costs $105 a day for all ages.
