Warner Canyon is a ski area previously within the Fremont National Forest, on land now owned by Lake County. It was opened in 1938 and is one of the oldest operating ski areas in Oregon.
It is located 4 miles (6 km) northeast of Lakeview, a driving distance of 9.4 miles (15.1 km). There is one chair lift serving the hill, and the facilities are operated and maintained by the non-profit Fremont Highlander Ski Club. The lift is a triple chair, with two landings. Total vertical rise is 732 feet (223 m), with mostly intermediate terrain.
Warner Canyon is an old fashion ski hill founded in the spirit of the old west, created and run by local volunteers where the only goal was having some fun during the long cold winter. Because we strive to keep costs to an absolute minimum, our carbon foot-print is relatively low. Our lodge is heated by solar and woody biomass sustainably harvested from our property. We don’t waste precious water and energy on snowmaking, rather rely on the snow that god provides. We rebuild parts for our lift whenever we can and reuse, remanufacture and fix everything else. Even our lift was bought from another resort and is enjoying a second useful life in Lakeview. When we can’t reuse, we recycle what we can in a rural setting.
Warner Canyon sports a rustic day lodge with a kitchen/snack bar, dining area, and covered observation deck. Visitors can order an affordable lunch or bring their own food. Tail-gate lunch parties are common in the parking area.
New handicap-accessible restrooms were constructed in 2003 adjacent to the lodge.
