Lack Of Snowfall & Warm Temperatures Force Mt Ashland Ski Area, OR To Close Until The Snow Returns

Chris Wallner | | Industry NewsIndustry News

Persistent warmth and lack of snow has been the story of the 2017-18 winter season for Mt. Ashland Ski Area, OR. These conditions have forced them to close temporarily until the snow flies again. On Sunday, they had their last day of operations. They used every inch of snow that they had and they’re prepared to open back up as soon as they can. It’s time to kick those snow dances into high gear and get Mt. Ashland back open.

Mt Ashland, OR Mountain Report:

Closed – Awaiting More Snow

We will reopen at the first snowy opportunity

Well, it’s been a wonderful few weeks. We’ve had many guests visit since we opened this season and we’re so glad you were able to enjoy Mt. Ashland this year. Over the past few days, our amazing grooming team was able to pull together enough snow to provide a solid skiing and riding surface, but there’s not enough left to push around. For that reason, Mt. Ashland will be closed until we receive more snow.

This is not the end!

We remain confident that Mother Nature will again bring plentiful snowfall to Mt. Ashland in 2018. We’ll see you as soon as the snow flies.

Mark your calendar for Bavarian Night on February 17! This annual fundraiser for the Mt. Ashland Ski Patrol is a fun event for the whole family.

In March, we’re holding our last Mid-Winter Jam on Friday the 2nd, the Big Mountain Bash on the 17th, and our Dummy Downhill on the 18th. Start building your dummy now and you could win a 2018-19 Season Pass!
