Snowfall increasing slowly but surely on Mt. Ashland

MEDFORD, Ore. – Mt. Ashland didn’t open like it hoped to on Saturday (12/9/2023); but it is getting more snow.

According to Friday’s (12/8/2023) mountain report, Mt. Ashland has received 15 inches of snow in the last seven days.

That’s not enough to open just yet, but with student’s Christmas break coming up in about a week, it gives the mountain a base that staff are hoping will increase.

General Manager, Andrew Gast said,

“We’re going to open as soon as we can and we don’t have snow making up here, so mother nature is the thing that decides. We really need about 24 inches of a good solid base in order for us to open.”

Staff say they will continue to take things day by day.
