OR ski resortsKnown for spectacular Northwest scenery along the Pacific coast, and summer fun and vacation spots all along the Columbia River area, Oregon also provides exciting winter action in nearly a dozen ski resorts and snowboarding areas throughout the state.

By far the biggest (and arguably the best) is the Mount Bachelor Ski Resort near Bend, offering 3,683 acres skiable acreas and 71 runs. The state's undisputed "ski central" also offers acres of cross country skiing, a rail park and tubing hill.

70 miles from Eugene, another popular destination is the Willamette Pass Ski Resort featuring 55 skiable acres with trails that attract skiers of all abilities, from steep and powdery to tamer runs for newbies. There are miles of cross country trails in addition to a tubing park and snowboarding terrain.

Portland OR Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort Salem OR Hoodoo ski area Mt. Bachelor ski resort Willamette Pass resort Spout Springs ski area Anthony Lakes ski resort The favorite of Portland winter sports enthusiasts is Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort, popularly known as The Mountain, offering more than 2,000 skiable acres with options galore in downhill runs, cross country, and snowboarding terrain.

By comparison, Anthony Lakes Mountain Ski Resort in the northeast Elkhorn Range offers a smaller area, but packs a big punch when it comes to skiing and snowboarding adventures. The highest base elevation in the state means lots and lots of white powder, and its remote location translates into no lift lines.
