Mt. Ashland's summit elevation of 7,533 feet gives the ski area a vertical drop of 1,150 vertical feet with 220 acres of varied skiing and riding terrain. Four chair lifts provide access to 23 ski trails plus epic 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.
Twilight skiing on Mt. Ashland is offered every Thursday and Friday evenings from 3:00pm to 9:00pm beginning in January and running through mid-March, 2015. Twilight tickets for Individuals (ages 13-69) are $25 and Youth Twilight ticket (ages 7-12) is $19. Twilight skiing is a great way to spend an evening with family & friends. If you work during the day, Twilight skiing gives you an opportunity to enjoy the slopes around your busy schedule. And it's beautiful. Our Mountain Cafe stays open until 9:00pm for your food & beverage needs and the T-bar lounge is also a great place to enjoy your favorite beverages. You may order anything from our Mountain Cafe in the T-bar lounge.
