$22.50 lift tickets on 1/2 price Thursday. Triple Black Diamonds a short hike away. RV parking, 30amp hookup only, 30 yards from lift. ... Full Review
This was our first time at Anthony Lakes, and it was amazing. Amazing powder, no crowds, and terrain for every skill level. The only downside is there is only one lift, but more would ruin the ambiance. Enjoy it while you can! ... Full Review
Gets skied out fast as so small, slow single chair lift, ... Full Review
We are new Baker City, and we love Anthony Lakes! I have ridden at every resort in Oregon, and of all the smaller ski resorts, Anthony tops them all. The power is the best I have ridden in Oregon. Try light fluffy champaign powder. They are high enough up that even in dismal seasons, they usually manage to have a decent amount of terrain open. The prices are unbeatable.... Full Review
Great powder. Friendly staff. Very good instructors. Good Coffee. Very little wait time. Old School! The only bummer is it's increasing popularity. ... Full Review
Saw my family doctor. After a bad fall he told me to take a couple aspirins and call his office Monday! Chances of seeing someone you know at a bigger resort are slim to none!
Have seen lots of other friends and then skiing with them was really fun and showed me another side of their personality! ... Full Review
This place is like stepping back in time 30 years. There are no aggro GoPro Bro types yelling at kids in the terrain park like you might find at a big resort. Lift tickets are currently $35 (!). The lodge is awesome, full of character and good food/beer.
But the riding here is the highlight. Despite only 700' of vertical and one lift, this place boasts around 20 runs, and most of them are steep and fun. There's a boulder field on Schuss Alley for pillow hops, chutes on rock garden, a natural rock quarterpipe, a couple small cliffs, tons of fun secret runs stashed in the trees, a great hiking experience out Avalanche, and so much more. I grew up riding Hood and can honestly say I prefer this resort 9/10 times to Meadows, Tline, or Ski Bowl.
You won't wait in lift lines except on holidays, and even then, it might take 2 minutes. The powder, when they get it (and that's usually often), is dry and fluffy. This is really an amazing spot to spend a day.
The terrain park can get a little scary at times, but you don't go here for the terrain park. It's not a park rat's mountain. They do build nice jumps -- it's the jibs that can be a bit dicey -- but the terrain park is kind of just there for an occasional lap between bombing some deep tree run or traversing horizontally across five or six runs on an adventure.
Best kept secret in Oregon as far as I'm concerned. ... Full Review
Great family friendly resort. Easy to get as many runs as you can handle in the day.... Full Review
Visiting my daughter, we went up skiing. The atmosphere reminds me of Arapahoe Basin, Colorado in the 1970's (in a good way). Serious skiers there who just want to ski and have a good time. The runs were in great shape, the lift is a little slow.... It just is a great little place with no lift lines and good snow. I want to go back!... Full Review
