Is the plan to use the lower parking lot as in time past, then up behind the lodge?

Does anyone know of a gas station in Boring or Sandy that has Non-Ethanol gas?

CT

yes yes yes, to all, please use the lower parking lot, fyi, it is the first lot you come to, after the roads Y's to the right and is one way direction, again the parking lot is on the right, lots of great parking for rigs.

and yes, CT just after you leave Sandy, Oregon, on the right hand side of the road, Shorty's, it is a Shell gas station and they sell fully leaded regular gasoline, the "good stuff"

Sno-Surfer, it is Sun day

and be sure to go into the lodge and buy a snow cat hill pass at the front desk, it is the hotel check in desk

oaky, need to update with the latest from Timberline lodge management

with the vastly improving weather on Mt Hood, the number of climbers/hikers has increased greatly, and and because the ski area has very little control over the climbers/hikers there is concern about the interaction between snow cats and climbers/hikers on Sunday, SO, Timberline Lodge management as asked if we could wait till 4 pm on Sunday before we start, Monday and Tuesday are good for all day use,

again we are being asked very nicely to wait until 4 pm. on Sunday to let all the climbers and hikers clear off the mountain and avoid any potential conflict of use,

so, take your time getting to Timberline Lodge on Sunday, unload your cat and park it on the East side of the Lodge, the area will be marked for you to see where to park, go check in, have a late lunch, and when the clock strikes 4pm. we are most welcome to drive on up to Silcox hut and enjoy the mountain, pretty much we will have the place to ourselves at that point, I thinks it is win win for the snow cats,

and remember on Sunday, I am buying the first round of timberline tucker ale up in the rams head bar at 7 pm.

we all should have grand time and everyone should really enjoy a very special place, Timberline Lodge. see you are there

Thank you Princess for making this happen!!

We are heading out first thing Saturday, and headed for McMenamin's Edgefield for the night, and to start the pregame festivities. Looking forward to a great trip.

That would be fun but due to the confusion machine tracks to Govt. Camp cause, we will not be able to do that. Skiers see the track down to Govt. Camp and assume that they are going to a lift to bring them back up the hill. Ain't no up hill transportation other than driving the road or one long walk.

Well these delays Iím sure glad I went out yesterday for a bit. Just couldnít wait....;-)
As we near the end of the season I start to panic. But really itís my favorite time to go out because you can usually trailer farther up the road and the snow is still great up high and you can be in a T-shirt. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow and if anyone is coming through Hood River with extra time Iíd be happy to give a tour of the local mt biking trails or ski mt hood Meadows.
