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.








Passport is required.

Your Passport must be valid until six months after your return. It is your responsibility to ensure your required travel documents are in order and with you.

Bus ride: We'll start the trip on Friday at 2 pm and ride the bus to Ashland. We’ll return Sunday night, by 8 or 9 pm. The bus ride itself will be fun. We’ll share some food, play games, tell jokes, watch some short videos (some funny, some instructional), etc.


Lodging: We'll stay at the Stratford Inn, near downtown. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi, a fitness room, an indoor hot tub and swimming pool. Each room has a coffee-maker, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, a hair dryer, and ultra-fast internet.

On Sunday, we'll ski at nearby Mt. Ashland. We'll ski till 3 pm, and then ride the bus back home.  We'll return to Portland around 9 pm on Sunday.


The following trip prices are tentative. We still don't have all the information about lift ticket costs. We estimated high. Chances are the actual prices will be lower. For now, send us only a deposit.  We'll let you know your balance as soon as we have all the info.

Prices:   Adults                            = $510 per person
               Seniors (65+)                = $492
               Anyone with Indy Pass = $395

All prices are based on double occupancy, i.e. sharing a room with one other person. Additional cost if you want a room all to yourself = $128.

Also, note that the price per person will be lower if we get more people to sign up for it.  The more people, the lower the price per person. So, sign up soon with just a $200 deposit.
