Services and Programs
Mt. Ashland offers comprehensive winter recreation services and programs to residents of southern Oregon and northern California. The mountain prides itself on being affordable to families and youth, offering some of the lowest ticket and program fees in the business. Over 1,000 youth each season participate in after-school and winter science programs. Thousands of community partners utilize the ski area and/or actively participate in a wide range of instructional and educational programs offered to local schools, colleges, youth and church organizations.
Many of these programs make up the Mt. Ashland Youth Program Department. Click here to learn more about some of these great programs.
Ashland's summit elevation of 7,533 feet gives the ski area a vertical drop of 1,150 vertical feet with 200 acres of varied skiing and riding terrain. Four chair lifts provide access to twenty-three ski trails plus 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 1993 the ski area came under community ownership made possible by donor-restricted contributions and a grant from the Oregon Economic Development fund.
