High Winds Forced Timberline Lodge to Close Lifts Yesterday

It was an extremely windy day yesterday, so much so - that Timberline made the decision to close down the lift. It was a small price to pay for safety, though!

Today is a gorgeous day, very clear - but it's cold! Gear up for cold weather if you're headed up to the mountain, as the clear skies make for an extra nippy day. The wind has slowed down a bit, and Timberline has reopened the lift, which runs today from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The temperature is a chilly 24 degrees, and be prepared for snow-covered roads, there is 11" of new snow on the mountain in the past three days!


  1. Canadians who are traveling outside of Canada and plan on skiing and snowboarding need special travel insurance. Unless specified, most travel plans do not cover the expenses from accidents resulting from the participation in "adventure sports". If you are unsure about what is covered, talk to your travel insurance broker; tell them of your plans and what exactly you will need.

  3. Good information for travelers, Carin. It's amazing how many tourists come into the area - so even if you've got great personal insurance, it's always a good idea to read the fine print and be sure that you are covered for recreational accidents. This would be especially true of out-of-town visitors and those traveling across international borders.
