Mt. Ashland Ski Area Explores Warm-Weather Options


The only ski area in Southwestern Oregon could have more weddings than ski days this year. 

Mount Ashland Ski Area only opened for 38 skiing days last winter... which is still 38 more than the winter before. 

Weddings and other warm-season events could become a more important part of the area's income down the road, if details can be worked out with the landlord, the U.S. Forest Service. 

Public comments are now being taken on summer recreation activities (see below). 

We get the details on the activities and their regulation.   

To comment: Mt. Ashland's site provides a good connector page for email comments.
