Timberline Lodge and Ski Area in Oregon is no longer requiring skiers and snowboarders to make reservations before going to the mountain.
When Timberline opened last Wednesday, a reservations system was put in place where skiers and riders had to reserve lift tickets in advance prior to picking them up.
But opening week at the Mt. Hood ski area showed to be a success, and now Timberline is readjusting its reservation system—readjusting, as in scrapping it altogether.
Timberline’s communications and marketing director John Burton explained that capacity will now be managed by limiting the number of vehicles in the parking lot like last Saturday when the Timberline Road was closed from about 8:00 a.m. until noon.
Timberline said it will continue to monitor the current COVID-19 situation and will be ready to make changes based on statewide restrictions and guidelines.
