Mt. Hood Express bus service

We have always encouraged carpooling from Sandy, and that is still an option. But, now you can take the new Mt. Hood Express bus instead. 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.

 

Powder Alliance.  Unlimited skiing at Timberline and Mt. Hood Skibowl + 3 free tickets at each of 17 other ski areas, for a total of 51 free ski days

17th annual

Ski the Historic Glade Trail Day

 

March 7, 2020 (Saturday)

 

Once a year opportunity to ski the 3.0 mile historic Glade Trail. A full day of red carpet skiing, including groomed trail, guides, lunch, airport style shuttles, Apre's ski wine party, prizes and more.


Reserve your tickets at 503-272-3301.


The Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum in Government Camp holds this annual event on the first Saturday in March, by special permit from the US Forest Service. The historic Glade Ski Trail is opened and groomed for this participatory living history event. This once popular downhill ski trail starts at Timberline Lodge and ends in Government Camp, a distance of three miles.


With multiple shuttle bus ride back up to Timberline, if you are ambitious, you can easily ski 21 miles over the course of the day.

 

Once a year, on the first Saturday in March the historic Glade Trail is groomed courtesy of Timberline Lodge for this annual living history day of skiing the way it used to be on Mount Hood.

 

Participants in the event receive shuttle transportation to Timberline, ski the trail with friends, and meet the bus at the foot of the trail to run back up to the top.


When you’re ready for a break, drop by the museum for a hot lunch featuring homemade gourmet soups and other great foods. The day concludes with a reception at the museum that includes beverages and hor d’oeuvres.

Ski the Glade is an annual tradition at the museum, held every year on the first Saturday in March. Timberline Lodge, an event sponsor, grooms the Glade Trail for the day providing great terrain for skiers and boarders.

Years ago, the Glade Trail was regularly groomed, providing a long loop for skiers or a route down the mountain at the end of the day. Many people in Northwest Oregon have fond memories of days spent skiing the Glade Trail.

Tickets for the all-day event are $125 for museum members and $150 for nonmembers, who will receive a year’s membership to the museum along with the ticket purchase. The price of the ticket includes use of the shuttle, lunch, apres-ski reception and a couple of beverage tickets. Only 75 tickets are available for the event.

To purchase tickets for Ski the Glade, contact the Mt. Hood Museum at 503-272-3301 or email info@mthoodmuseum.org

 

The Glade Trail was built by the US Forest Service in 1937 as part of the Timberline Lodge ski complex. The trail roughly follows the route of the original Blossom Trail, dating to 1888 or earlier. Before the advent of ski lifts, highly groomed slopes, and extreme snowboard acrobatics, skiing long trails was popular. Skiing consisted of either jumping or trail skiing. Trail skiers climbed on skis equipped with climbing skins to the Timberline Lodge area and skied back to Government Camp.

 

According to Lloyd Musser, Museum Curator, “this event helps fulfill our mission of preserving and interpreting the history of Mt. Hood. This is a chance for Grandparents to ski with their grandchildren and share the memories of skiing the Glade Trail, when it was the biggest ski adventure on Mt. Hood.”

 

Shuttles will run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM allowing ticket holders to make several trail runs. The events of the day are recounted at the Apres ski party, where prizes are awarded. Wearing vintage ski clothing is encouraged.

 

Participation is limited to 75 skiers.

 

Tickets may be purchased at the museum, or by calling 503-272-3301. Visa is accepted.
