Mt. Ashland Ski Area Gets STOKEd

Mount Ashland webcam

Mount Ashland Ski Area is closed for the season, and what a season it was. 

Heavy snowpack brought big crowds to the mountain. 

And right after the season ended, the ski area got STOKE certification, STOKE standing for Sustainable Tourism Operator’s Kit for Evaluation. 

Sustainable can and does mean different things... we sort out the meaning of the certification with ski area manager Hiram Towle and STOKE co-founder Carl Kish.  No lift pass required.
