Mt. Hood, Oregon
Distance: 949 one-way
At nearly 6,000 feet, Timberline is nearly halfway up 11,239-foot Mt. Hood. Its chairlifts reach where the snow never melts. This is the land of endless winter. All year long, the Palmer Snowfield at Timberline, Mt. Hood's highest skiable terrain at 8,500 feet, remains white.
