Mount Bachelor Ski Area
You think Oregon, you think green, but here’s another option: White.
Discover the sprawling national forests and stunning ski areas ready to compliment your winter vacation to Oregon's high altitudes.
Encompassing 1.4 million acres, this national forest is a haven for those of you looking forward to some sledding, skiing, and snowmobiling in northeast Oregon.
In the Umatilla National Forest, you can enjoy sledding at Rose Springs and Andies Prairie – ideal for family vacations – or gliding through cross-country ski areas like Horseshoe Prairie, and the Meacham Divide.
If alpine skiing is more of your thing, check out the Ski Bluewood ski area or the Spout Springs ski area – open to downhill skiing enthusiasts from November until April.
As the temperatures start to drop, winter visitors to Hood River may head for the Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area. One of Oregon’s bigger ski areas, Mount Hood Meadows is a quick drive from Hood River on Oregon Route 35 – just outside of Government Camp and the Mt. Hood Ski Bowl.
Mount Hood offers both alpine and Nordic skiing, with the longest run at three miles. Mount Hood offers 11 onsite chairlifts – the best way to explore all Mount Hood has to offer – plus lessons for beginners, equipment rentals, and even night skiing.
A staple of the Oregon Cascades, Mount Bachelor is found in central Oregon in the Deschutes National Forest. Set southwest of Bend – and just a day trip away from Oregon cities like Sisters, Redmond and Prineville – the 3,700-acre Mount Bachelor Ski Area is the largest ski area in the state.
Mt. Baker features 71 runs – the longest of which at 1.5 miles – and a top elevation of 9,000 feet. Take advantage of 3,683 skiable acres and four terrain parks, and enjoy the rest of your winter in Oregon.
Pay a visit to Oregon any time of year for on-your-feet adventure, and plenty of winter fun. Join your two greatest passions – Oregon and outdoor recreation – and we’ll see you in the Beaver State.
