Property Description

Property Description

Built in the late 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corp, the Tilly Jane A-Frame is a quintessential rustic alpine retreat.  The A-Frame was originally constructed to support climbing parties on their ascents of Mount Hood's challenging northeastern route.  Today the cabin is maintained by the Oregon Nordic Club, and during the winter months the rustic and popular abode sees a constant flow of day-trippers and overnight guests.  The A-Frame is large enough to accommodate 20 guests comfortably, and the floorplan includes a giant wood stove in the center of the structure where everyone can warm up, dry their socks, and socialize.  The overnight accommodations are almost always booked, so be sure to make your reservations early ($15 per person per night). 

For better or for worse, getting to the Tilly Jane A-Frame is no easy stroll.  There are two options from the parking lot next to the Cooper Spur Ski Resort: make the strenuous, 2.5-mile, 1,900 foot climb straight up a ridge on the Tilly Jane Trail (best for those with snowshoes), or ski 9 miles of sweeping switchbacks that ascend over 2,000 feet on Cloud Cap Road.  Either way, keep your pack light by bringing only the essentials.
