SNO-man says

One of less than a dozen US ski areas with a 1000m+ vertical ( although the top lift does not operate in winter ) and also offering one of two summer skiing areas in North America ( and the only lift-served one in the United States ). A classic ski area with a sixty year history. During the summer Timberline has many ski and snowboard camps that people can enroll in. Race camps have assigned lanes and snowboard camps have their own parks and pipes. Timberline's famous summer terrain is accessed by the Palmer Express , a state of the art, high speed quad chairlift. Palmer whisks you up to 8,540 feet, where you can carve turns on some of the most famous and scenic ski terrain in the country. All on a glacial snowfield that typically receives 450+ inches of snow each year. Palmer snowfield is divided into a reserved race training area and an area designated exclusively for recreational skiers and snowboarders. 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. There is great hiking and horse riding in the area and a gorge walk loop. 'Ski Bowl' is located six miles west of Timberline and features 26 attractions including a mile dual alpine slide, Indy Karts, kitty jeeps, free fall and reverse bungee. Climbing, fly fishing and golf are also offered nearby.

"Timberline" by any other name

The American resort is also known as and has common misspellings:

The direction which the various Timberline slopes face can make or break your ski holiday. To guarantee good snow conditions, choose a resort with piste which face the right way for the time of year you're travelling.

- 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. Conversely, in the warmest spring skiing months of March and especially April, a resort with cool and shady north facing trails will ensure you're not riding on slush, but benefitting from best late season snow. 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.
