One of the unique qualities about Southern Oregon that makes it an ideal spot for a family vacation is that you can drive for an hour in any direction and experience a diversity of natural environments and climate conditions. One example that many of our guests take advantage of is taking the 56-mile journey to add a day of skiing at the Mt. Ashland Ski Area to their itinerary at the Eagle Point Golf Club.
Grab Your Ski Jacket, and Let’s Go!
Mt. Ashland is the highest peak within the Siskiyou Mountains, a subrange of the Klamath Mountains that runs from southwestern Oregon into northwestern California.
The Mt. Ashland Ski Area opened in 1963 and has since been a popular skiing destination for beginners and advanced skiers alike. Today the park includes 200 acres of terrain spanning from a base lodge elevation of 6,350 feet to its top lift elevation at 7,500 feet. Four ski lifts transport skiers to a total of 23 runs and open bowl skiing, with skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Newbies are welcome, with group and individual lessons for all ages available.
Recreational activities on Mt. Ashland aren’t limited to winter sports. Visitors enjoy beautiful, secluded hiking trails along the back of the mountain. Small roads lead from the base to the summit, making it easy for families or groups of friends to access the trails and enjoy a relaxing walk together. When the snows come, these trails work well with snowshoes.
Return to the Golf Course to Relax and Wind Down.
Trade your ski boots for a set of clubs and enjoy a day on the course at Eagle Point Golf Club. Return to level ground and meander the greens nestled between tranquil waterways and majestic mountain views. Our course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., incorporates the natural landscape into uniquely challenging holes that will pull your mind away from the concerns of everyday life.
Celebrate your achievements with a delicious dinner at the Talon Grill, featuring indoor and outdoor patio dining. Enjoy meals prepared by our world-class chefs while sharing the day’s adventures on the course with friends and family.
Finally, rest and relax in our Chalets, located right off the greens. Wrap yourself in luxury and kick back for a night of peaceful recuperation. You’ll awake the next morning feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the day.
