Weekend skiing

at Timberline

In past years, we've had anywhere from a dozen to about 20 ski days at Timberline and Skibowl.  We ski there as a group mainly in December and then again Spring skiing in March, April, and May.

In January and February, we are less active locally.


In the middle of winter, we are usually busy with ski trips, PACRAT races, and other events.  But, we will most likely ski together at Skibowl and Timberline every weekend in March. April and May, until Memorial Day, when all the regular ski passes (Fusion pass, Spring pass) expire.


Join in the fun! Make the effort to join us in Sandy, so we can start the day together!Mountain High club members human slalom at Mt. Hood Meadows, Oregon

More alternate transportation

Since about 2018, Timberline has been providing its own shuttle buses between Government Camp and Timberline, encouraging us to leave our cars in Government Camp.  These buses run around the clock, so you can expect them once every 30 minutes or once an hour.


Timberline's shuttle buses stop at only two places: 

1.  In the parking area just below the Ice Axe brew pub.

2. In the parking lot of the Summit ski area

The problem is that one bus stops only at the lower end of Govy while the other bus only stops at the upper end.  The same bus doe NOT pick up at both locations.

These shuttles are free for everyone who has a Timberline or Fusion Pass.

Weekend day-trips to Mt. Hood

Just for fun gatherings


Come ski with us!  Just for fun. Can you show us some new trail. a secret stash, a hidden slope?  Or can we show you something new you haven't skied before? Let's find out.


Normally, we meet at McDonald's in Sandy (left at 3rd traffic light in Sandy) around 7:30 - 7:45am. You'll find us either in the parking lot, or inside McDonald's, getting a cup of coffee. From there, we can either carpool or caravan (follow each other's cars) to the ski area.  NOTE: This carpooling is optional.  It doesn't happen every time. See what is announced ahead of time in our Forum. 


Please Join one or both of our club's Forums (Weekend and/or Mid-week). You can post messages there, see when other people are planning to go skiing, and communicate with them.


Simply click on one of the Forum buttons in our  main menu.  Then click on "Join this Group" in the upper right of the window.  Give the system your email address, so that you can then automatically receive an email whenever someone posts a message in the Forum or replies to your message.


Alternate ways to meet:  (if you miss us in Sandy)

1.  On the mountain, meet us around 9:00 am (or 8:00 am after May 15) near the ticket office, or just outside the day lodge, near the free ski check, ready to go skiing.

2.  On a 2-way radio, find us on Channel 6-19.  Just ask for "Mountain High" people!


For more info, contact Emilio, Emilio2000@earthlink.net, or 503-510-1477. 

Alternate transportation (by bus):

On some nice day (when it's not windy or rainy in Sandy), let's try using the Mt. Hood Express bus. A bus ticket costs only $2, and it saves you not only the cost of gas but also the wear and tear on your car.  We'll try to announce those days in advance.


Catch the bus on the far western end of Sandy. Even before you get to the first Sandy traffic light (near Fred Meyer), turn right at the ARCO gas station (barely visible from Hwy. 26).  Then an immediate left into the parking lot of the Mt. Hood Forest Center.  Leave your car there and walk up the few steps to Highway 26, where you will see a small stop shelter. The bus leaves there at 7:45 am, arrives at Skibowl at 8:30 am, and at Timberline at 9:00 am.


See bus schedule at: http://www.mthoodexpress.com/#!schedule-map/c1h6a


Mid-week skiers


The current group of mid-week skiers tend to be advanced skiers who enjoy powder skiing and challenging terrain (trees, bumps, ungroomed snow) at Mt. Hood Meadows.


Here are just a few of the regular mid-week skiers:


Debbie Thomas       Kay Kinyon       Walt Blomberg



George Yun          Kurt Krueger


Mid-week day-trips

to Mt. Hood ski areas.


A group of us go skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows on week days, all winter, often on Thursdays, but also whenever there is good powder, or whenever the fancy strikes! 


At Meadows, find us in the cafeteria in the South lodge near the Schuss restaurant (aka The Hamburger Place) around 8:00-8:30 a.m.(That's on the slope level, which is 2nd floor).  Left lodge as you walk up from the parking lot.   


You can connect with the mid-week group by joining our online Midweek forum page: http://groups.google.com/group/MtHigh-midweek?hl=en . Click on the Join this group link (on the upper right of the page) and follow the instructions. 


Please choose to receive all emails from the group. That way, you will be notified when the group starts making plans to go skiing.

Once you join this Forum (which is actually a Google Group), you can post messages in the midweek forum whenever you want.  Only your first message, or your first joining, needs to be approved by a group moderator..

Sometimes we use 2-way radios to connect on Channel 6, Code 19, but almost nobody in the Meadows group uses radios any more, so this is not a reliable way to connect.

Snow-ghost at Schweitzer Mt.

Tree skiing
Excellent powder and trees




  Schweitzer video 1

Schweitzer video 2 ,


Why ski Schweitzer?

Lots of terrain.  There are 10 lifts including one high-speed six-pack (named Stella), 3 high-speed quads; 2 triple chairlifts; 2 double chairlifts; 1 T-Bar, and one conveyor lift.  10% Beginner, 40% Intermediate, 35% Advanced, 15% Expert.

Open bowl and tree skiing. Long cruisers. 5 ridges, 2 enormous bowls, 92 named runs (from Australia to Siberia). With 2,400 vertical feet, and 2,900 acres, Schweitzer Mt. is bigger than Alta or Snowbird (UT), Jackson Hole (WY), Copper Mt. (CO), Northstar-at-Tahoe (CA), Deer Valley (UT), or Aspen (CO).

Trees, trees, trees! Great tree skiing. Yes, there are plenty of blue cruisers too, but Schweitzer provides some interesting glades. There are intermediate trees, advanced trees, and double-black trees. Take your
pick, but do try skiing around some of them. Don’t miss gladed areas such as: J.R. Trees, Glade-iator, Phineas Forest, and Shenanigan’s (a.k.a: the Tree Farm).

Powder! Excellent, dry snow, and plenty of it. This is what Schweitzer is most famous for.

Ghosts, ghost, ghosts! Capture some snow ghosts on your camera, and listen for the ghost of Phineas Schweitzer banging and clanging in his workshop when you board the 6-passenger express lift named after his wife, Stella.

To sign up for this trip, simply do two things:

  1.  Make your hotel room reservation.

2.  Contact Linda and let her know your situation.  Do you need lift tickets?  Do you have a season pass? When are you planning to arrive and how many days will you ski?

Mt. High  ski trip

Schweitzer Mountain, Idaho

2 or 3 days of skiing.
Travel on your own by car.
The highways to Sandpoint, Idaho, are usually clear & free of snow.


February 13 - 16 or 17, 2021 -- Monday - Tuesday - Wednesday.

2 or 3 days of skiing.

Schweitzer Mt., Idaho. offers 2,900 acres and 2,400 vertical feet, served by One high-speed six-pack; 3 high-speed quads; 2 triple chairlifts; 2 double chairlifts; 1 T-Bar.  It is famous for its powder skiing.

START DATE: Sunday, Feb. 13 – Drive to Sandpoint & check in.

Note that this trip (like the Mission Ridge trip last year) will be different from our usual ski trips - because of the virus pandemic:

  1. Everyone will be driving their own car. We will NOT have a bus.
  2. For lodging, you can select your own roommate (optional), or simply have a room to yourself. Your choice. We will not be pairing you up with a stranger.
  3. You are responsible for purchasing your own lift tickets, either day tickets or a season pass (IKON).  We are looking into group rates if we have a minimum of 15 people who do not have other passes.

SKIING AT SCHWEITZER: 2 or 3 days (your choice): Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, Feb. 14, 15, 16.   

Schweitzer is on an exchange program with Mt. Hood Meadows all access passholders and Loveland Ski Area passholders, who can get 3 days free skiing midweek; or you can get 4-7 days with the Ikon Pass.  Those are currently the only passes we know will work at Schweitzer, and this trip is not on blackout dates.

Like many ski areas these days, Schweitzer will sell tickets online in advance, at some kind of discount which is not known at this time.  They have told us that the total number of skiers should not be an issue at Schweitzer on a mid-week day; there should be no crowds.

Everyone who signs up for this trip, please contact Linda McGavin and let her know the following:

  • Did you make your hotel reservations, and for how many nights (2 or 3 or more)?
  • Will you need a lift ticket, or do you have a season pass (Meadows All Access, Loveland, or Ikon)?

Remember that you are responsible for making your own hotel reservations and obtaining your own lift tickets (or a season pass), but let Linda know your plans, as we will be able to get group rates if we have 15 people or more. 

Lift tickets

While Schweitzer has not published their regular winter season ticket rates as of late September, they have told us the group prices for 15-19 people: 

Adult: $81.00 plus taxes/fees = $88.87 (age 18–64) or

College/Senior/Military: $77.00 plus taxes/fees = $84.48. 

If we do this you will have to pay Linda for your lift tickets that she arranges, as only one person can pay for those tickets.  We won’t know whether we can do this until we know how many signups we have for the trip, so don’t delay in signing up!   (We will also check to make sure that it isn’t cheaper to just buy your tickets online.)

HOTEL - Book your own room at the Hotel Ruby Sandpoint/Ponderay in Sandpoint, 477255 US-95, Ponderay, ID 83852; 208-263-5383. 

Do it online, not by phone.

Enter your promo code SKI2022 before picking a room.

Please book your hotel room early - there is no penalty for canceling up to 4:00 pm the night before your arrival. 

Good news: Group Rate – The hotel has set up a special rate for our members who book rooms for ANY TIME between October 16 and March 31!  You will book directly through the website (hotelrubysandpoint.com) using the promo code SKI2022

NOTE:  You need to enter the promo code SKI2022 before you pick a room so the rate will be applied.

For our dates, after the discount the rooms at the Hotel Ruby should have either:

  • one single queen bed for $84/night + tax = $96.60; or
  • two queen beds for $92/night + tax = $105.80.

This is one of the closest hotels to the ski area, located just 11 miles or 22 minutes away.  The hotel is only 2 miles from the parking lot where Schweitzer runs a free shuttle bus between 7 am and 5:30 pm, every half hour.  https://www.schweitzer.com/plan/shuttle-and-parking/ 

Parking on the mountain may cost big bucks if you want to park in the premium parking, which is the closest to the lifts and highest. There is a secondary parking lot near the bottom of the Musical Chairs lift which serves beginner terrain. The only issue with that is that the Musical Chairs is a slow double chairlift, but it will take you to the other lifts.

The hotel offers free parking, wireless internet, premium bedding, non-smoking rooms, an indoor swimming pool and two hot tubs, and a ski room.  Enjoy a daily, complimentary breakfast which includes waffles, cereal, mini bagels, English muffins, blueberry muffins, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, orange juice, milk, coffee, apples, and oranges. 

The rooms have premium bedding, Wireless Internet, Mini Fridge, Microwave, Cable/Satellite TV, DVD Player, Free Toiletries, Hairdryer, Iron/Ironing board, Desk, and Alarm Clock.  Note that there are no elevators – if you need a ground floor room please be sure to ask for it. 

NOTE:  The club is not collecting any money for this trip.  We will pay the hotel individually and buy lift tickets individually.  And for transportation, we;ll drive our own cars.

Jesus at Whitefish

At Whitefish, Jesus is looking toward Blacktail Mountain ski area.

 Mt. High ski trip
Whitefish, Montana
4 or 5 or 7 nights.  Travel by car, train, or plane.

NOTE:  This trip was full for a while
and we had a waiting list. But we've
had a few cancellations and the wait
list has now cleared. There's room for
a few more people.

March 13 - 20, 2022. Sunday - Sunday.
4, 5, or 7 nights.  We are counting nights, not days.
All lodging starts on Sunday night, March 13, regardles of your length of stay.  We'll all start together.

You can choose how many days of skiing you want at Whitefish. Just let our trip captain know how many lift tickets you will need.

On Wednesday, March 16, we will have an optional day of skiing at Blacktail Mt., about 1.5 hours away. We can carpool there. Let Bill know if you want to ski at Blacktail that day. The alternative is to stay at Whitefish.

Arrange your own – planes, trains or automobiles. If you fly, the nearest airport is  Glacier International Airport - located between Whitefish and Kalispell.

Whitefish Mountain Resort offers 3000 acres of skiing. Formerly known as Big Mountain. It has 11 chair lifts (3 express quads). It has 2,353 vertical feet and 105 named runs plus vast amounts of bowl and tree skiing.

Blacktail Mt. is somewhat smaller, but it provides some variety. On a clear day, it is visible from the top of Whitefish Mountain. Blacktail offers 1,000 acres, 1,339 vertical feet, about 20 named trails plus 5 gladed areas, served by one triple chairlift and two double chairlifts.

We will be staying at the Kandahar Lodge, a very nice on-mountain hotel with a Swiss or Austrian feel.

It has a lobby/great room with a huge wood-burning fireplace, a fine dining restaurant open only for dinner, and a small separate bar. It is true ski in, but to ski out, you have to walk about 100 yards across a road and parking lot. Or you can take the free van that will take you to the lifts or wherever you want to go (not into town, there’s a free public snow bus for that). The van only runs during the day. At night it’s about a five-minute walk to the bars and restaurants in the upper village, or to catch the snow bus into town. Kandahar Lodge has no elevator, and the rooms are on the second and third floors. There is plenty of outdoor parking, a huge hot tub, and a complimentary continental breakfast.


Bill, our trip leader, will put people needing a roommate in touch with one another, but will not be assigning roommates.

Everyone will have to find their own roommate or pay a single supplement (double room cost).

Lodging Prices:

$420/person for 6 or 7 nights (we get the 7th night free)
$350 for 5 nights
$280 for 4 nights.

We will make every effort to put those looking for a roommate in touch with each other, but we will not be assigning roommates. Everyone is responsible for finding their own roommate and everyone in the room will need to have the same arrival and departure dates.

Lift ticket prices:

NOTE: To provide maximum flexibility, lift ticket prices are listed here separately. But we did get a 20% group discount. The discounted tickets need to pre-ordered before the trip from our trip leader, Bill King. The discounted prices are:

Adult 1-day $68         Adult 2+ days $63/day
65-69 1-day $59        65-69 2+ days $54/day
