The building design mirrors the lines of the mountain, and was constructed out of stone and wood from the surrounding forest. The lodge was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977. Today, Timberline Lodge provides an enduring sense of place for more than two million visitors each year who come to ski, hike or enjoy a glass of Oregon wine under the gaze of the mountain.
