ASHLAND, Ore. -- Mt. Ashland Ski Area is moving toward a weekend only schedule after a late start to the season. Despite its delayed opening, general manager Hiram Towle says this season is right on schedule for the average number of days of operation.
"Pent-up demand is showing its true colors right now," said Towle. "It is difficult to have a late start...Right now we've got over 13 feet of snow has fallen on the mountain this season. Unfortunately perception in the valley might be different because of the late start but I assure you winter is in full swing up here."
Mountain staff are celebrating the end to its final full week with Ski-ster Sunday where kids and adults can partake in family fun.
Kids are invited to an egg-hunt by the lodge and adults can search for two golden eggs on the slopes. One golden egg will have a $100 giftcard and the other an adult season pass.
Events kick-off at 9 a.m. on Easter Sunday. The mountain is expected to operate on weekends well into the month of April.
