The 1980 movie – The Shining – used aerial shots of Timberline Lodge as part of its opening scene, and exterior footage for some establishing shots of the fictional Overlook Hotel throughout the movie.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent—a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy. 

Built in 1936 as a home for skiers and climbers, Timberline is today home to North America's longest ski season. In the height of winter, the ground floor of the lodge is typically fully buried in snow, with entry through a snow tunnel, or directly into the second floor. The lodge together with its cozy rooms, two resident St. Bernards (Bruno and Heidi) pub and restaurant, is a welcome relief after a full day on the slopes.

The Fruit Company got its start in 1942 when Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The company was passed down from father to son and today is owned and operated by Roy's grandson, Scott. In 1999, Scott expanded the company into the world of gourmet gifting, and there The Fruit Company has found its home as the premiere provider of gourmet fruit gifts.<\/p>","post_name":"the-fruit-company-orchard-tours","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.6445","lng":"-121.52","distance":"11.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/attractions\/outdoors-nature\/the-fruit-company-orchard-tours\/","terms":"an Outdoors & Nature<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Attractions<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1200791","post_title":"Classic Wings Aero Services","post_content":"
