Ski Resorts in Oregon
Other states may get more ink (virtual or otherwise) than Oregon, but skiers and boarders in the know realize that a lack of fanfare translates into seldom-crowded slopes, stashes of untracked powder, and that king-of-the-mountain vibe that comes from being the only person in sight. Then again, the states epic Mount Bachelor has long pulled western powderheads more interested in the resorts pristine 500-acre volcanic terrain than après ski entertainment. Mount Hood Meadows, on the other hand, pulls more than its share of seasonal snowas much as 25 feet each yearand lies within a 15-mile radius of other resorts, offering ample variety of terrain and post-slope thrills and chills. Then theres Timberline, the first place on the continent to offer lift-service summer skiing. Spend a week at one resort, or tour other entire state; whatever your strategy, one thing is assured: deep powder. Each season, heavy storms riding off the Pacific Ocean collide with the Cascade Mountains, covering the resorts with pure white gold.
