East of Eugene and southwest of Bend, the Willamette Pass ski area has 29 runs open to snowboarding with a maximum vertical of 1560 feet across 550 acres.
For the most part, this family-owned ski area caters to families with easy and intermediate runs. But, theres plenty of challenge as you go higher up on the mountain.
One cool feature is the pay-by-the-hour lift pass.
For apres ski, forget the base area. Head east 8 miles to Marleys Tavern.
To reach Willamette Pass from Eugene, head east on SR58 for 70 miles.
Overall, Willamette Pass is the 6th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 11 snowboarding resorts in Oregon.
