After 5 to 6 feet of snow fell last week in the Central Oregon Cascades, ski areas in the region are set up for a potentially stellar late-winter and spring season.
For the first time in its 50-year history, Mt. Ashland Ski Area never fired up its lift this season. But the good news for skiers and riders is the Oregon ski area will operate next winter, thanks to a federal loan.
Well, it’s an annual rite of spring at Vail. The wet and wild day is April 15, 2012, sponsored by Rockstar energy drink. Vail is not alone, either.
