This public area opens one wide lane and expands during the day as more terrain becomes available. Palmer is recommended for advanced intermediate and expert level skiers and snowboarders. You can ride side by side with International Olympic medalists such as Tommy Moe, Liz MacIntire, Phil and Steve Mahre, Johnny Mosely and Ross Powers.

- In the coldest winter months of January and February pick a resort with sunny south facing slopes, so your days on the snow doesn't feel like a polar expedition.

The best destinations have areas which face in all directions so that you're guaranteed greating conditions whatever the weather. Timberline has slopes facing S.
