The wait is over! After much anticipation, Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort is excited to announce Opening Day is set for Saturday, December 21, 2019. The Thanksgiving Week storms were instrumental in helping build a base and the recent snowfall has allowed for Anthony Lakes to set an opening date for Saturday, December 21. With more snow in the forecast toward the end of the week, Anthony Lakes anticipates a great holiday break on the hill. Be sure to join us for live music, a visit by Santa and good ol’Eastern Oregon skiing & riding! Remember, Anthony Lakes relies on 100% natural snowfall, so skiers and riders are reminded to use caution as early season conditions exist. Groomed runs will include Broadway, Variety, Vista, and Road Run, as well as the Lake Loop, Campground Loop, Gunsight, College, College Extension and the Training
Loop on the Nordic side.

Season passes will be available to pick up starting at 8:00am upstairs in the Main Lodge. Tickets will be available for sale at the ticket booth starting at 8:30am. The Handletow, Magic Carpet, and Rock Garden
Chair will turn at 9am. All lodge amenities will be open. The ski area will operate daily through January 5. Please note, Anthony Lakes closes early at 1pm on Christmas Eve ($5 off lift tickets) and is closed Christmas Day. Don’t miss skiing with Santa on Christmas Eve from 10am to noon!
