MOUNTAINS — The historic Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood turns 75 years old in this year.

Built during the Great Depression as a key part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal-WPA projects, the lodge has served FDR’s intention – as “a place to play for generations of Americans in the days to come.”

To celebrate the anniversary, Timberline will hold several promotions and special events throughout the year. Notable happenings include an ode to skiing and snowboarding during “Heritage Week” in April and a free concert and heritage fair.
