Experience the Wonderland of Oregon in Winter
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.
Visit the Largest Congregation of Bald Eagles
Winter is the season to witness the largest concentration of wintering bald eagles in the continental U.S. Up to 780 eagles spend winter in the Klamath Basin, with peak numbers usually seen in February, right around the time The Ranch hosts the annual Winter Wings Festival.
Winter Sports & Recreations in Oregon
Oregon Skiing & Snowboarding
Where the Siskiyous meet the Cascades, Southern Oregon skiers enjoy a ring of snow surrounding the Rogue Valley during the winter months. The breathtaking peaks and valleys, abundant snow parks, and accessible ski and snowboard areas make Southern Oregon an excellent destination for cross-country skiers, boarders, hikers, and snowmobilers. Ski areas include Mt. Ashland Ski Area, Mt. Bachelor, Mt. Shasta, Warner Canyon Ski Area, and Crater Lake National Park.
Adults and children can enjoy ice skating at The Bill Collier Ice Arena, situated near our resort entrance. Also used as the rolling skating arena during the summers, the Sports Center at Running Y Ranch Resort can also double as an ice-skating rink during the winters.
