This is a list of questions that our guests ask us frequently. If you need more information, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (541) 482-2897.
Tickets & Passes
Are season passes on sale?
Season passes are available for sale. We are currently upgrading our E-commerce system, please give us a call at (541)482-2897 or send us an email at email@example.com and we can sell you a pass. During the month of October, we will offer 2-month interest-free financing on your season pass purchase. Season pass prices will increase to our in-season rates on November 1st.
Will there be a reservation system for the upcoming winter season?
Mt. Ashland will have a reservation system for the 2021-22 season, but there will no longer be a daily capacity limit set like last season. Advanced reservation will be your opportunity to purchase a reduced-price ticket for the day.
Can I buy lift tickets in person at the mountain?
Please plan ahead and purchase lift tickets in advance. Purchasing your tickets in advance ensures you will be able to ski on your chosen day. However, as we reach the end of the season, we are unlikely to be sold out again, so you can plan to purchase your lift ticket at the ski area.
Is there a cost to park in the Mt. Ashland parking lot?
Yes. The state of Oregon clears snow from the Mt. Ashland Ski Road and our parking lot as part of the Sno-Park program. Anyone parking along the road or in our parking lot is required to display a valid Sno-Park permit on their vehicle’s dashboard. We sell annual permits for $30 and daily permits for $6. They can also be purchased in town at DMV locations and retail outlets like Bi-Mart.
Will the Free Shuttle be running this coming winter?
Yes. We plan to offer our free mountain shuttle once again on weekends and holidays during the 2021-22 ski season. We offer service every hour, on-the-hour from the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites beginning at 7am on operating days. The last bus departs Mt. Ashland at 5pm.
Can I bring up my RV?
Recreational vehicles are allowed to park in the Mt. Ashland parking lot. Unfortunately, these vehicles can take up much more space in a very limited parking area than other vehicles. They can also be very challenging to bring up to the ski area safely when our roads are snow- and ice-covered. We kindly request that you consider the possible crowding on certain days and leave your RV at home this winter and use your vehicle as your day lodge.
Can I have a fire in the parking lot?
Yes and no. We cannot allow wood fires in our parking lot as they create a lot of smoke, ash, and the flames could damage nearby vehicles. We do allow propane-powered, self-contained, commercially-available fire pits. Please use your best judgement and keep all combustible materials and containers out of all roadways, away from other vehicles and people, and exercise extreme caution.
Can I buy a Sno-Park permit at the mountain?
Yes, but to reduce the amount of on-mountain transactions, lines, and touch points, we ask that you purchase your Sno-Park permit in advance. Annual Sno-Park permits can be purchased online or at select retailers such as Bi-Mart. They will not be available from DMV locations at this time.
At the Ski Area
What are the ski season opening and closing dates?
Our projected opening date is December 11, 2021 and our final day of operations next season is projected to be Sunday, April 17, 2022. We are always subject to weather or other things beyond our control such as changes imposed due to COVID-19.
Will the ski lodge open this season?
Yes, given the best available information we have, we plan to have our indoor facilities completely open to the public this coming ski season. Because of the continuing nature of the pandemic, we will continue to monitor the best available information and state regulations. We retain the right to make changes as we go, so please stay tuned to our communication channels to ensure you have all of the latest information about our policies.
What are the food and beverage options?
Mt. Ashland plans to offer food and beverages in our main lodge daily during the upcoming ski season. We do not offer food or beverage service in summer.
Are you limiting capacity on the mountain this coming season?
We do not have any plans to limit the number of guests visiting the ski area during the upcoming ski season.
Are you limiting capacity in the lodge?
Mt. Ashland does not have any plans to limit the number of guests inside of buildings during the upcoming ski season.

Will Twilight Skiing be offered on Thursday and Friday nights this coming season?
Yes, we plan to offer Twilight Skiing on Thursday and Friday nights until 9pm in January through mid-March during the 2021-22 season.
Are guests be able to rent annual lockers?
Yes. We have a limited number of lockers available and we will once again offer these for seasonal rentals in the fall of 2021. If you have not rented a locker in recent years and are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (541) 482-2897.
I left an item. Where is the Lost & Found?
First of all, please do not leave your items at Mt. Ashland! Abandoned items left at the ski area will be logged and held for 14 days. These items include but are not limited to hats, gloves, face coverings, clothing, water bottles and other random items. Larger or high-value items such as skis, snowboards, boots, poles, cell phones, keys, wallets, snow jackets will be kept for the duration of the season or as space allows at the discretion of staff.
Lessons & Rentals
Will you be offering ski and snowboard rentals next winter?
Yes. Guests will be encouraged to reserve gear rentals at least two days in advance to ensure an efficient rental process. This will enable our staff to pre-set rental gear ahead of time and efficiently move guests into and through the rental shop to get guests out on the hill in a timely manner.
Will you be offering ski school this winter?
Yes. We will be offering ski school next winter. We will update our website with more information about this as we get closer to next season.
Will you be offering school-based programs?
Yes. We will make more information available about the program as we get closer to the winter season.
