COVID-19 Guidelines

Is the Ski Lodge open this season?

Is there a reservation system?

Mt. Ashland will have lift tickets for sale online for the 2021-22 season, but there will no longer be a daily capacity limit set like last season. Advanced purchase will be your opportunity to buy a reduced-price ticket for the day. Tickets will also be available for sale at the ski area.

Getting Here

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.

Is the Free Shuttle running this winter?

Yes. We offer our free mountain shuttle once again on weekends and holidays during the 2021-22 ski season. Please check the Mountain Shuttle page to see exact dates of operation. 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? What about overnight parking?

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.
Because of its pristine setting within Rogue River National Forest, the ski area isn’t able to offer slope-side overnight accommodations, but Mt. Ashland does partner with several outstanding local hotels and inns. 

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.

At the Ski Area

What are the ski season opening and closing dates?

The ski area opened for the season on December 18, 2021 and our final day of operations 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.

Is the ski lodge open this season?

Yes, we have our indoor facilities completely open to the public this ski season. Face coverings are required indoors when not actively eating or drinking.

We will continue to monitor the best available information and state regulations. We may 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 season?

No. We do not have any plans to limit the number of guests visiting the ski area during the 2021-22 ski season.

Are you limiting capacity in the lodge?

Mt. Ashland will comply with state regulations which may limit the number of guests inside of our buildings during the ski season.

Are you limiting chairlift capacity?

Mt. Ashland is not limiting use of the ski lifts during this ski season. Singles: pair up! :)

Will Twilight Skiing be offered on Thursday and Friday nights this 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 able to rent annual lockers?

Yes. We have a limited number of lockers available for seasonal rental. If you are interested in renting a locker for the season, please contact us at info@mtashland.com 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

Are you offering ski and snowboard rentals this season?

Yes. Guests are 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.

 

Are you offering ski school this winter?

Yes. We are offering ski school this season. Please check our ski school page for information and if you’d like to reserve a private lesson we will do our best to get you scheduled soon!

Are you offering school-based programs?

Yes. We have information available about the program on our Youth Ski & Snowboard Program page.
