Looking at checking out timberline this summer. Kids will be 10. Both have ridden mountain creek and snowshoe. blues and the easier blacks aren't a problem. Will they have fun at Timberline?

Timberline is like Stepping back in time. Accommodations are minimal, mountain is great except for 1 bike every other chair.

I was told management changed last summer and went downhill, in a bad way. Can anyone confirm?

I didn't go last year at all but have gone several times the past few years. I like Timberline and the trails are fun but they are all natural trails. There are no groomed machine built runs. Some trails are very steep fall line, some very rocky, but there are some blue level trails as well. No greens at all. The lift is long and slow so it takes a while, but I always have fun there.
