 Mt. Hood Express bus service

For only $2 (or just $1.50 if you prepay for 20 tickets), you can ride the bus from Sandy to Skibowl, Government Camp, or Timberline. Catch the bus right on Hwy. 26, at a park and ride bus stop half way between Champion Way and 362nd (which is the Fred Meyer traffic light in Sandy). Turn into Champion Way to park at the Information Center.  The most convenient bus starts at 7:45 am and arrives at Skibowl at 8:32 and at Timberline at 9 am. Click here for the complete schedule.

 

Also note that Timberline runs its own hourly shuttle between Government Camp (stopping at the Mt. Hood Brewing Co., at Collins Lake Resort, and at the Chevron station at the top end of Govy). This shuttle runs only on weekends and holidays. Approximately once an hour to make the full round trip.

Learn to Ski - Or Help Someone 

Our club now has a new page devoted just to beginner skiers, and we need volunteers who are willing to help newcomers to the sport. This is a win-win for everybody. By brining in new people to the slopes, the ski areas get more customers, our club gets more members, and the newcomers get their wings (their skis or boards)!

You can find it on our Membership page and on the Forms & Docs page.
