Mt. Ashland Ski Area, Ashland

#7 of 7 in Outdoors in Ashland
Cross-country Ski Area · Hidden Gem · Ski Area
Mt. Ashland's summit elevation of 7,533 feet gives the ski area a vertical drop of 1,150 vertical feet with 200 acres of varied skiing and riding terrain. Four chair lifts provide access to twenty-three ski trails plus open bowl skiing. Forty acres of trails are lit for night skiing. A Tudor-style mountain lodge provides food service, bar/lounge, ski school, retail and ticket sales. Ski and snowboard rentals are available.

Local skiing enthusiasts built the Lodge, Ariel chair, and a T-bar and rope tow in 1963 through a grassroots effort. The Southern Oregon State College Foundation managed the ski area in the mid 70's. Local businessman Dick Hicks purchased the ski area in 1977 and raised funds to build the Windsor chair lift in 1978. The ski area was sold to Harbor Properties of Seattle in 1983 and night lighting, vehicle shop and Sonnet and Comer chair lifts were installed. In 1991 the ski area came under community ownership made possible by donor-restricted contributions and a grant from the Oregon Economic Development fund.

  • The snow is amazing this year. Lots of events planned out. Epic new lodge design. Love that! Perfect runs for my kid. And yes great runs for papa! Thanks Mt. A ! Stay awesome.
  • Really great park for all types of skiers/snowboarders. Beginning - advanced. They also have night riding 2x a week. They don't have a lot of variety, but for the price and when the weather is nice it's a really great choice. I live about 4 hours away and we get a group to come here because it's such a nice little mountain and definitely worth it! Great little town too.
