Getting Here

Is there a cost to park in the Mt. Ashland parking lot?

From November through April, 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 during that period of time. 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.

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 generally operates mid-December through mid-April. We are always subject to weather or other events beyond our control. We make operational updates on our Mountain Report page, via text alerts, and on our social media channels.

What are the lodge hours?

The lodge opens every morning at 7:30am and closes 30 minutes after the lifts close.

What are the food and beverage options?

Mt. Ashland will offer food and beverages in our main lodge daily during the upcoming ski season. The Gemutlichkeit Grill offers burgers, fries, and other standard ski area fare. The T-Bar Lounge offers local microbrews, domestic beers, and a wide range of craft cocktails. The Balcony Bistro is open on holiday and weekends and serves rice and noodle bowls, walking tacos, and canned beer.

In the summer we have food and beverage options at the Gemutlichkeit Grill in the lodge during specified dates.

Which nights do you offer twilight skiing?

We will offer Twilight Skiing on Thursdays, Fridays and select Saturday nights until 9pm in January through early-March during the winter 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 or (541) 482-2897.

We also have coin-operated lockers on the second floor of the main lodge for day use.

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

Do you offer ski and snowboard rentals?

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.


Do you offer lessons for skiing and snowboarding?

Yes. We have a professional ski school that offers lessons in skiing, snowboarding, and telemarking. 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.
