Willamette Pass, Oregon

Ski It! Ride It! Live It!

A scenic drive from the West or East of the Cascades, Willamette Pass offers a wide variety of activities the whole family will enjoy. From downhill skiing and snowboarding to snow tubing and 20 km worth of Nordic trails, we cater to skiers and riders of all abilities and offer them the chance to experience big mountain terrain in a small mountain atmosphere.

Yet, it also offers some intense and challenging runs for expert skiers.

Just to the right of the lodge, is a beginner area with a slow moving, "magic carpet" and a three person beginners lift to help new skiers gain confidence.

On the rest of the mountain, there are 28 more trails that enable you to advance and test your abilities. All are long and uninterrupted by crossovers or cat trails.

These are great cruising runs that offer you the choice of beginner, intermediate and advanced skiing terrain. The advanced runs are steeper in pitch and include moguls carved out of the 460 inches of snowpack. Top to bottom, the longest run is just more than two miles.

Snowboarders and skiers alike also enjoy the terrain park.

First Timer packages are available that include lower mountain lift, lesson and rental.

Cross-country skiers have access to 20 km of trails. The Nordic center is located at the west end of the main parking lot, set next to the tubing center.

Ski school programs are offered for alpine, and snowboard. Eagle Peak contains the perfect terrain for all these sports.

Skier services are all within the massive lodge at the base of the mountain. There are spectacular views of the mountain from the lodge.
