Oregon Ski Area Closes Its Doors Following Lackluster Snowfall + High Temps

Outside northern Idaho, Montana, and parts of Washington– the winter in the west has been a bust of epic proportions. Nobody knows that fact better than Mt Ashland Ski Area.

The Oregon ski area was forced to close temporarily this week after warm temps and a lack of accumulation made skiing/riding untenable. Resort officials are hoping to reopen as soon as the snow starts flying again but until then– it’s a no go.

Full Statement:

Closed – Awaiting More Snow | We will reopen at the first snowy opportunity

Well, it’s been a wonderful few weeks. We’ve had many guests visit since we opened this season and we’re so glad you were able to enjoy Mt. Ashland this year. Over the past few days, our amazing grooming team was able to pull together enough snow to provide a solid skiing and riding surface, but there’s not enough left to push around. For that reason, Mt. Ashland will be closed until we receive more snow.

This is not the end!

We remain confident that Mother Nature will again bring plentiful snowfall to Mt. Ashland in 2018. We’ll see you as soon as the snow flies.

Mark your calendar for Bavarian Night on February 17! This annual fundraiser for the Mt. Ashland Ski Patrol is a fun event for the whole family.

In March, we’re holding our last Mid-Winter Jam on Friday the 2nd, the Big Mountain Bash on the 17th, and our Dummy Downhill on the 18th. Start building your dummy now and you could win a 2018-19 Season Pass!
