Mt. Ashland isn’t opening… yet

ASHLAND, Ore. — Skiers and snowboarders will have to wait on mother nature for more snowfall before heading up to Mount Ashland.

Mt. Ashland normally opens the second week of December.

However, due to a lack of snow, Mt. Ashland general manager, Hiram Towle, says the ski area is opening a bit later this year.

“Just not enough to get groomers out on or to spin the lifts, but it’s looking better day by day,” said Towle.

Towle says the mountain currently has around 10 inches of snow.
