Mt Hood Lift Tickets


Mt Hood is home to five different skiing and snowboarding areas, so there is plenty of opportunity to mix it up during your stay. The four ski areas that are closest to our cabins are Timberline Ski Area, Mt Hood Meadows, Mt Hood Ski Bowl and the Summit Ski Area and Snowtube Hill. Cooper Spur Ski and Snowplay Area is located on the north side of Mt Hood and will open as soon as adequate snow levels allow. This year, the ski areas are implementing Covid-specific protocol to keep skiers and snowboarders safe while having fun on the slopes in alignment with National Ski Areas Association’s Ski Well, Be Well Program. The ski areas have posted their plans on their websites; click on the links below to stay updated with each ski area.



Timberline Ski Area capacity will be managed based on how many cars the parking lot is able to safely accommodate on a first-come-first-served basis. Timberline’s uphill ski area capacity far exceeds the number of parking spots. When the parking lot meets safe operating capacity, Timberline Road will close. People will be allowed up when spaces become available. Plan on arriving after 7:00 AM when the roads are plowed, but well before 9:00 AM to gain access before the road closes. Capacity is expected to free up in the afternoons when morning skiers and riders depart Timberline guests will be asked to self-group and visit Timberline with immediate household members, people in their traveling party or individuals they are consistently exposed to or spending time with. Face masks will be required at all times indoors, in lift lines, on chairlifts and any other time 6 feet of social distancing is not possible.

Mt. Hood Meadows plans to spread out skier and snowboarder visitation by time of day and day of week through dynamic pricing strategies to insure safe distancing between riders. The best value in lift tickets will be in the afternoons and mid-week. Mt Hood Meadows has redesigned their parking flow and their food and beverage service. Face masks will be required at all times indoors (except when you are seated and actively eating or drinking), on shuttles, in parking lots, in lift lines, on chairlifts and in all outdoor areas where 6 feet of distancing cannot be maintained. Mt Hood Meadows is experiencing cases of Covid amongst some of their team members and they are being very aggressive about quarantining to reduce the risk of spread. This is very likely to have an impact on some of operations this winter. Opening and closing times, as well as services available have the potential to change quickly with minimal notice. Please help MHM and their employees by considering the following:
  • Bringing your own lunch and eating it outside or in your car to reduce your time in the lodge
  • If you do purchase food from MHM consider getting it to go and eating outside
  • Try to limit your time in the lodge as much as possible and move back outside as soon as you are warm or done eating
  • We all need to work together to minimize our time in the lodge and to reduce the risk of spreading Covid
Thank you for helping Mt Hood Meadows reduce the risk of spreading Covid to both their team and other guests.


Skiing and snowboarding lift tickets at Mt. Hood Skibowl will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the Skibowl West ticket office only. No reservations and no online purchases are available for lift tickets for skiing and snowboarding. All Cosmic Tubing passes will need to be reserved and paid for online. Guests will be asked to self-group and visit with immediate household members, people in their traveling party or individuals they are consistently exposed to or spending time with. Wearing face masks will be required indoors, in lift lines, on chairlifts and in all places where 6 feet of social distancing is not possible. Mt Hood Skibowl expects this season’s ski and snowboard experience to be “back-to-basics” with more time spent at your car (putting on ski boots, eating a snack, etc.). Food and beverage operations, lessons and all other services will be limited to provide for social distancing and safety. Mt Hood Skibowl is still refining this season’s operating procedures and pricing, so check their website often for updates.


Summit Ski Area is now part of Timberline Ski Area. Your Timberline lift tickets are valid at Summit Ski Area. Operating procedures are still being determined; check back for details.



We highly recommend taking the Mt Hood Express to get to the lifts. The Mt Hood Express travels between the lower villages and the Skibowl and Timberline Ski Areas. The shuttle is just $2 each way! Check out their website for a schedule, list of stops and updated Covid-related safety protocol. Mt Hood Express requires all passengers to wear a mask at all times. The bus capacity is currently limited, distancing passengers 3 feet apart. Once the maximum capacity has been reached, the bus will not stop to pick up new passengers.


  Our Mt Hood vacation cabins are filling up faster than normal this year. Be sure to make your reservation soon.
