Ski resorts in Oregon


The ski resorts in Oregon are as diverse as the state itself. From community ski hills to large, modern developments, there is a resort to suit every taste. Oregon ski resorts benefit from around 400 inches of snowfall a year and the longest ski season in North America, which gives you plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding unspoilt wilderness.

As you would expect, ski holidays in Oregon come with the world famous American hospitality. After a day of skiing or snowboarding, you will find plenty of restaurants, bars and shops, often situated just downhill from the slopes. Oregon ski resorts also give you the chance to try other winter sports, such as skating, hiking, fishing and snowmobiling, to name just a few.

Visiting Oregon

The ski resorts of Oregon cater for everyone, from beginners to experts. Many resorts have excellent facilities for families with children. Two of the most popular all-round resorts are Mount Hood and Mount Bachelor, which have good facilities on and off the slopes.

As well as slopes for a variety of abilities, most ski areas also have groomed Nordic trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Oregon also has the largest night ski area in North America.

There are 11 skiing areas, including Timberline's Palmer Snowfield, which is North America's only year-round ski and snowboarding area.

Accommodation is provided in hotels, motels, apartments, chalets and inns. The accommodation is usually spacious and of a high standard. If you fancy trying something a little different, it's worth checking out Timberline Lodge, which is near Mount Hood. Built during the Great Depression, some scenes in the film 'The Shining' were shot here.
