We like our winter weather in Eastern Oregon. Along with experiencing it while skiing in our fluffy powder, feeling it with a steelhead on line, or tasting it with our beer, wine, and spirits.
We like it here. You might too!
Things look different out here in the big, vast nowhere. Which is why so many people like it. It’s hard to look down into Hells Canyon – the deepest river gorge in North America – or quietly steer your raft along the waters of the John Day River, and not feel a little more connected to the world we live in.
Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort was voted the People’s Choice winner as Oregon’s best place to play in the snow and among the Top 10 destinations in 2016 voted by The Oregonian/OregonLive readers.
It’s not all cowboy country though. If you need a break from all the winter activities outside, then get warmed-up in towns like Joseph, Baker City, and Pendleton which offer art galleries, shopping, breweries, and incredible dinning all winter long.
