Willamette Pass Ski Resort

Willamette Pass Ski Resort is a medium sized ski resort located 75 minutes outside of Eugene on Highway 58. Known for it’s great steep terrain and proximity to the Eugene Area, Willamette Pass makes a perfect day trip when you’re craving the snow. In the summer they have some of the best mountain biking, hiking, and sight seeing in the Cascades.

General Comments:Willamette Pass is a great ski resort if you want a fun, convenient day of skiing. They have terrain for everyone, a great atmosphere, and an enjoyable mountain. If you are a thrill seeker they have plenty of advanced off piste terrain. Some of my favorite areas are STN (located in the trees to the right of RTS), Dragon’s Back (the ridge on the right of the backside, and West Peak (the not yet opened but hikeable peak off the backside).
