Greatest place for a beer on the mountain
"It's a secret to everybody." This place is SO wonderful and no one seems to know about it. Built by the same folks that brought you the Timberline Lodge: huge fireplace, bavarian beers and backgammon on the middle of the mountain which means you can only reach it by ski lift from Ski Bowl (or a STRONG snow shoe) and it's only open during winter. 13 minutes away from the cabin without traffic. FYI: sometimes the card reader is frozen over so bring cash!

Food, drinks and music
Every Shire dwelling needs its Hobbit ale house and this is it. You must try the mac n cheese with salmon. Outdoor fire pits. Live music nightly. See who is playing tonight: https://skywaybarandgrill.com/live-music/

Do you karaoke? My westside neighbor also bought this place recently and gave it a remodel. I've heard only nice things about the fixes and I definitely dropped some serious John Denver bombs on that microphone.

Food, Drinks and Merriment
Japanese cuisine on the Mountain. Try the ginger plum whiskey in the summer or a warm sake in the winter. Toast those toes outside in their garden firepits, warming tent, chalet, or gas fireplace. The fried rice and tuna poke are my favorites.

Mexican food and margaritas. My neighbor next door (west side) owns this establishment. It has been in a state of flux and I am hopeful he can bring it back to the glory days because this place was THE place for Mexican food on the mountain before they slid.

Local pub. Decent fried chicken, pool table, and a digital juke box. Come for the beer stay for the slug races in August and see who gets crowned "slug queen." No salt allowed.

Arcade games, foosball , pool, and beer. The bartender enjoys some Guns and Roses and will likely play it if/when requested. Fried bar food galore.

I come here for the log cabin vibes and the bloody mary. The food is simple but tasty and they have big ol’ cinnamon rolls.

Best skiing on the mountain. The lodges are not as cozy as Timberline but that's changing -- new lodge opens soon!

Smallest/affordable ski resort with best alpine and steepest drops on the mountain. Cosmic tubing for the kiddos in the winter and an adventure park with bungee jumping, race cars, zip lines, and Alpine Slides in the Summer.

Sightseeing
Summer or winter one of the most delightful hikes for the family. The birds will literally swoop down and sit on your head/shoulders/toes. I'm not kidding. I have the video proof.

Beautifully wooded and mossy hike. Several swimming holes. If you make it to the bridge, drop below for a secret pebble beach lunch. Nothing could be finer.

A small hike in but if you get there early enough in the day, you can claim the log raft sitting lakeside with a BBQ grill attached and roast your hot dogs in the middle of the lake. It's amazing. Tell no one.
