An Unforgettable Winter in Oregon

A Wonderland of Natural Beauty and Fun

With average yearly snowfall of 38.5 inches, Southern Oregon is a winter wonderland. Opportunities to get outside and enjoy the fresh powder abound at Running Y Ranch Resort: ski, snowshoe, ice skate, or birdwatch your way through winter at our resort. 

Oregon Skiing and Snowboarding

Where the Siskiyous meet the Cascades, Southern Oregon skiers enjoy a ring of snow surrounding the Rogue Valley during winter months. The breathtaking peaks and valleys, abundant snow parks, and accessible ski and snowboard areas make Southern Oregon a great destination for not just cross-country skiers, but also boarders, hikers and snowmobilers. Ski areas include Mt. Ashland Ski Area, Mt, Bachelor, Mt. Shasta, Warner Canyon Ski Area and Crater Lake National Park.
