Skiing at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort in Baker County Oregon
A perfect winter weekend at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort. This Baker County ski resort is arguably the best-kept powder secret in the in Oregon. The Rock Garden chair lift serves twenty-one runs that drop over 900 vertical feet with over 40% of the resorts runs rated expert black diamond. The dry climate in Eastern Oregon, coupled with the 9,000-foot peaks of the Elkhorn Range result in a powder so dry the Anthony Lakes crew has to occasionally water it down around the lifts. Nestled in the Elkhorn Mountains with the highest base elevation of any Oregon Ski Area and an average annual snowfall of 300 inches, Anthony Lakes is powder heaven. If you like to take in the scenic views at a slower pace, you can cross-country ski or snowshoe on more than 30 km of groomed trails through the Anthony Lakes Basin and Elkhorn Range of the Blue Mountains. Want a little something different? A Cat-ski operator and full guide service leads adventure seekers into the backcountry bowls and chutes for a one of a kind powder experience.
