See Flier HERE. Tickets are available now for the 2019 Ski the Glade event, a throwback to a time when it was possible to spend the day skiing the trail from Timberline to Government Camp.

Hosted by the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum, Ski the Glade offers skiers and boarders a chance to take advantage of three and a half miles of unbroken mountain terrain. If you’re ambitious, you can easily ski 21 miles over the course of the day.

Participants in the event receive shuttle transportation to Timberline, ski the trail with friends, and meet the bus at the foot of the trail to run back up to the top. When you’re ready for a break, drop by the museum for a hot lunch featuring homemade gourmet soups and other great foods. The day concludes with a reception at the museum that includes beverages and hor d’oeuvres.

Ski the Glade is an annual tradition at the museum, held every year on the first Saturday in March. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, March 2. Timberline Lodge, an event sponsor, grooms the Glade Trail for the day providing great terrain for skiers and boarders.

Years ago, the Glade Trail was regularly groomed, providing a long loop for skiers or a route down the mountain at the end of the day. Many people in Northwest Oregon have fond memories of days spent skiing the Glade Trail.

Tickets for the all-day event are $100 for museum members and $125 for nonmembers, who will receive a year’s membership to the museum along with the ticket purchase. The price of the ticket includes use of the shuttle, lunch, apres-ski reception and a couple of beverage tickets. Only 75 tickets are available for the event.
