Resort skiing in the northern hemisphere in June is a rare commodity; few do it better than Timberline.
What a treat to head up there with my boys for some skiing on the first day of summer.
It was the perfect cure for my withdrawals from not having skied in almost two months.
My boys had never been to Timberline, so this was even more special.
Timberline had just received four inches of rare but not unheard-of June snow just two days prior.
We were lucky to have mostly sunny skies.
We started the day primarily doing laps on the Magic Mile lift while waiting for the surface to soften up high.
It was busier than you might expect, but that happens when you are one of the few resorts still open, and people come from all over the country to visit.
As is usual on a warm day with direct sunlight, the snow started hard, then hit the sweet spot before getting sticky.
We made the most of it by exploring all over. The terrain park and the top of the Palmer lift were my boy’s favorites.
What a fun day; it will not be soon forgotten.
