Eastern Oregon’s Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort is a ski resort with a peak elevation of 8,000 feet, over 1,000 acres of Alpine terrain, over 30 kilometers of groomed Nordic terrain, a full service lodge, retail, rental and repair shop, and yurt rentals for overnight stays.
The Alpine trails at Anthony Lakes span a vertical drop of 900 feet, the longest trail is 1.5 miles. There are 21 runs, most of which are categorized as intermediate or expert, but six of which are perfect for beginners. Anthony Lakes has been deemed the best powder skiing in the Pacific Northwest and receives an average annual snowfall of 300 inches. The base of the mountain sits at 7,100 feet, the highest in Oregon. Runs at the small sized family resort are serviced by one triple chair lift. Beginner runs offer a handle tow and a magic carpet lift to the top.
Anthony Lakes is also home to over 30 kilometers, or almost 20 miles, of some of the most scenic Nordic trails in Oregon. Both groomed and trackset trails are divided into beginner, intermediate and expert categories. With 86% of the trails falling in the intermediate and expert range, Anthony Lakes has become a cross-country ski destination for its challenging and beautiful lakeside trails.
For more adventurous skiers, cat skiing, or guided backcountry skiing, is an Anthony Lakes specialty. Over 2,000 acres of terrain includes glades, bowls, steeps, and other challenging elements. The resort’s snowcat can hold up to 12 guests, and half or full day trips will go with a minimum of eight. Normally, a full day trip consists of about eight runs, which can be anywhere from 800-1,200 feet long. Full day trips also include lunch, snacks, and hot chocolate.
During the summer months, the lifts are open and the downhill trails are open to mountain bikers, as are the Nordic trails, which become the perfect summer single-track trails for cyclists. The mountain lakes and granite mountain peaks offer breathtaking scenery. Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort is connected to a summer trail system that includes Philips Reservoir, the MERA trails, Elkhorn Crest and the Southern Elkhorn Mountains.
There is one main lodge at the Mountain Resort. The lodge serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers locally brewed beer at the Starbottle Saloon.

The yurts are located within ¼ mile of both lodges, and include a small kitchen, propane stove, bunks with sleeping pads and access to an outhouse.
History: The Anthony Lakes region, once known as North Powder Lakes, was ‘discovered’ in the 1930’s by Americans looking for recreational opportunities in the Pacific Northwest. Around this time, adventurers began to build cabins among the lakes high above the tree line for summertime use, and began to lobby railroads and the Forest Service for access to winter skiing. Some small trails opened in the 1940’s, but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that the Oregon governor agreed to plow the roads accessing the mountain, if a group could get a resort started.
Over 50 years later, Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort is still committed to offering the best powder skiing in Oregon and takes pride in having been deemed among the friendliest small ski resorts in America. The resort continues to operate as a concession of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.
Ongoing Programs and Education: Group, private or semi-private lessons are available in both skiing or snowboarding. Packages are available that include lift tickets and equipment rentals, and can be purchased for either one or three days. A Tiny Tykes program is offered for children ages four to six, and a ski racing program is offered for children ages seven through eighteen. The ski racing program is managed by a non-profit organization, Anthony Lakes Ski Racing, or ALSR. “Own the Mountain” allows groups of 50 or more to have exclusive access to the mountain for blocks of five hours.
What’s Nearby: Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort operates as a concession of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, and offers two recreational complexes within the National Forest, including the Anthony Lakes Campground and the Union Creek campgrounds. Both offer a variety of backcountry tent sites, RV sites with hookups or group campsites with toilets and water. Two historic log cabins and one guard station, all built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps are also available for overnight stays.
