Mount Ashland likely will have longer season

Ashland, Ore., — “I love snow boarding it’s my favorite thing in the world pretty much.” says one snow boarder, Leif Beebe.

The first day of spring isn’t far away, but you wouldn’t know that up on Mount Ashland.

“I love all this powder, I love how goof they’re doing, I haven’t seen this much snow in such a long time.” said Beebe.

Skiers and snow boarders in the Rogue Valley can’t get enough of the fresh powder.

“This never really happens, it’s super sweet. It’s super awesome.” said Beebe.

The mountain was open until April 14th last year, but General Manager Hiram Towle thinks this season will beat that record.

“It’s looking pretty likely that we will yeah.”

And the incredible amount of snow has led people to flock to the mountain…

“We’re actually up almost 10 thousand skier visits over this same date last season.” said Towle.

Towle says as long as the people keep coming, and the snow keeps falling…

“We’re near 100 inches of annual snow fall over last year which was actually above average year, so that’s pretty impressive.”

The mountain will stay open as long as possible.

“If they continue to show up, and want what we have to offer, we’ll be happy to keep on spinning.” said Towle
