Overview by Nancy Prichard Bouchard

Willamette Pass is all about fun. Don't worry if you don't own the latest in fashionable ski outfits. And don't expect a lot of ski egos and wanna-be Olympic racers. Willamette Pass is a great mom-and-pop area, less than an hour-and-a-half drive from Bend. While Willamette Pass prides itself on being a great place for families and beginners, there is plenty of challenging terrain for more advanced skiers and boarders. This family-owned ski area has some of the best tree skiing in the Northwest and an excellent terrain park. It's an attractive mix of adrenalin-producing drops and gentle glades. The mountain has two peaks. Eagle Peak is 6,683 feet, and Peak Two is slightly lower. Terrain ranges from steep and deep to mogul fields to gentle glades and a fun terrain park. The view from the summit is worth the drive—the resort overlooks Diamond Peak and Odell Lake, and on a clear day, you can see all the way from Mount Bachelor to Three Sisters to Mount Jefferson.

Of the resort's 555 skiable acres, less that half are groomed. That means lots of fresh powder on intermediate and advanced runs. The Eagle Peak Accelerator is a six-person lift that whisks you to the summit in three-and-a-half minutes. Beginners should start with Duck Soup on the South Face of Eagle Peak. The best intermediate run is Kaleidoscope to Perseverance, a whopping 2.1-mile moderate roller coaster ride down a wide, sweeping groomed slope. Eagle Peak has four great advanced runs, with R.T.S, a short, steep (52-degree) run accessed by the Summit Chair. Also off Eagle Peak, High Lead and Good Time Charlie are about twice as long and provide thigh-burning mogul fields. Peak Two has even more
