Legendary Timberline Lodge ski resort on Mt. Hood, OR will be closing early this season on August 2nd for the first time in decade. Timberline almost always stays open until the end of September (Labor Day) and has the longest season in North America by far. The last time Timberline closed early was on August 18th, 2005. Timberline averages over 400″ of snowfall per winter but this year they only got 297″. That lack of snow is what has lead to the early closure this year.
