Willamette Pass Resort is a ski area in the western United States, located at Willamette Pass in west central Oregon, in Klamath and Lane counties. In the Cascade Range between Oak Ridge and La Pine and accessed by Highway 58, it operates on federal land under special use permit on the Willamette and Deschutes National Forests. Founded in 1941, the ski area has been locally-owned and operated by the Wiper family of Eugene since 1982, the year its first chairlift was installed.
Ski area information
Willamette Pass Resort is a year-round destination with two distinct seasons: A winter ski season and a summer season. In the summer, hiking, sightseeing, disc golf, geocaching, and downhill mountain biking are available, as the Eagle Peak Accelerator is converted into a 6-person gondola.
Willamette Pass is best known for having one of the steepest runs in the world, “RTS”, which at its steepest point is 52 degrees. It hosted the 1993 Subaru U.S. Speed Skiing Championships, where a top speed of 116.56 mph (187 km/h) was achieved.
The area is a popular place for nearby schools to visit, with lessons and plenty of green runs. The lodge has a restaurant, shop, lost-and-found service, and ski and snowboard rentals.
