Anthony Lakes: Oregon’s Friendly Little Ski Area

This week we travel to the 8,000-foot level to see a snow-covered landscape that is out-of-this-world gorgeous at the “Friendliest Little Ski Area in Oregon,” Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort. When you drive west from Baker City and head into the Elkhorn Range of the Blue Mountains, the sun breaks through, the air is clear and you leave all…


North Powder

Straddling the historic Oregon Trail, North Powder has a long history of serving travelers.

Get off the freeway here and explore the back roads, where two-lane highways dip and wind through rolling hills, farms and sprawling ranches. The tiny town is surrounded by opportunities for hiking, camping, fishing, wildlife viewing and touring on the Grande Tour Scenic Bikeway. The nearby Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort is famous for powder and short lift lines in winter and some of the area’s most scenic hiking trails in summer.
