Timberline is much more than just a nice place to spend the day on the slopes, the whole locale is a truly one of a kind experience. The skiing in and of itself is quite good, in that the altitude on Hood and the fantastic grooming that Timberline performs offers some of the best conditions on the mountain. On the flip side, this is not the place for someone looking for off piste (unless you hit The Glade), backcountry, or cliffs to jump from. My 25 year old self would have probably found this place a bit tame, but my now 43 year perspective really enjoys the long cruisers that are enjoyably clear of large crowds most of the time. This combined with the only true Apres Ski of the major resorts here in Oregon make Timberline one of a kind. The lodge, particularly after the day crowds have left, is like a step back in time. Here the old ways still live on, and you can really let your hair down and just enjoy yourself as if you were invited into a friends gigantic mountain cabin. It is in the pricey side, rooms/eats/ etc.and I am not always enamored with what I get for my money in the restaurants, but everything else is so great that this seems like a small inconsistency that is easy to overlook.
