For beginners, there are nice cross country paths with a downhill on the end that is doable, if a little precarious. Don't make the mistake I once made: went up on the lift, tried to cross country down. High up it was really icy. Ouch....More

Kinda lackluster, and it was a bit pricey. Wife had wanted to Zipline, and it was her birthday...That was the only activity we did, or wanted to do. There is so much other natural beauty to see.

We stopped at Timberline lodge for lunch. We did not want the buffet even though it was a better deal. Still had good view. Food was ok but over price, good service

The day would be the best way to go, we opted for just one trip down the alpine slide. Small children have to be over 3 to ride with an adult . And over 48" to ride alone.

The probability of snow is much better for timberline or meadows than for ski bowl. Ski bowl is the lowest ski area on the mountain. They are the last to get any accumulation and the first to lose it. I've lived in the... More
