ROGUE VALLEY WINTER FUN & FESTIVALS

Don't worry about searching for the sweet spots because we have snowballed a list of some of the best. Gather your boots, sled, best buddies and head outside!

Diamond Lake

The soft, supple snow at Diamond Lake Resort make it a popular winter destination among locals and visitors. Grab your tube, sled or saucer because there’s plenty of room for everyone to have fun on the hill. Diamond Lake is a hub of winter fun with seven sliding lanes, fabulous facilities and a friendly staff.

For a truly unique experience, tube down the slope under shimmering lights on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays. 

The resort also offers 3-hour and all day passes, as well as discounts for families of four. 

Stay a few hours or all day for the best snowy fun in Southern Oregon.

Directions: Diamond Lake is about 70 Miles north of Medford. Take Highway 62 up from Medford through Shady Cove, past Union Creek and Crater Lake National Park. This drive is stunning and has a lot of gorgeous stops and viewpoints along the way!





Table Mountain at Hyatt Lake

Heading south? Table Mountain has an awesome sledding hill in the Hyatt Lake Recreation Area at the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. During the winter months, Hyatt Lake offers sledding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. 

Directions : 20 miles east of Ashland, Hyatt Lake is a portal to a plethora of winter outdoor recreation activities. 









Mt. Ashland and Grouse Gap Sno-Park

Mt. Ashland is the crown jewel of Southern Oregon. A mecca for winter recreation, Mt. Ashland has been a local favorite since 1964. 

There is plenty to do at Mt. Ashland, but twilight skiing is a must. It’s the best way to experience a beautiful Southern Oregon winter sunset. Twilight skiing starts at 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday nights in January, February and early March. When the lights go on, your journey of lights and snow begins!

While you’re in the area, head over to Grouse Gap Sno-Park for sledding. It’s just up the road from Mt. Ashland and a great place to hit the snow.

Directions: Head south on I-5 from Medford and take the Mount Ashland Exit just south of the Ashland City Exit. 






Crater Lake National Park Snow Shoeing

In an average winter, Crater Lake National Park receives 43 feet of snow! Ranger-led snowshoe hikes are a fun way to explore this winter wonderland while learning how plants, animals and people survive the harsh conditions.

This winter, snowshoe hikes will be offered on weekends and holidays from December 8 through April 28.
