Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort

Pristine and quiet, this beautiful high mountain lake is wonderful in summer for mountain biking, camping, fishing, and picnicking, and excellent hiking through unspoiled mountain wilderness. Only small trolling motors, canoes and rafts are allowed on the lake. In winter, dry powder makes the downhill skiing here some of the best in Oregon.

With a base elevation of 7,100 feet (highest in Oregon), Anthony Lakes offers the best powder skiing in the Northwest. Ski Anthony Lakes offers ski and snowboard rentals, groomed cross-country and snowshoe trails, snowcat skiing and a charming day lodge with a restaurant and lounge. It’s the perfect down-home, family-friendly winter playground!

Anthony lakes also offers avid skiers the unique opportunity to "Own The Mountain" for a day.  This one of a kind opportunity is perfect for ski clubs corporate retreats, or just those skiers who want to have the mountain to themselves, and is available for groups of up to 50 people on non operating Mondays January through March

Anthony Lakes Ski Area is a proud participant of Ski Green. Ski Green is a partnership between the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) and leaders in the snow sports industry to build support for non-polluting renewable sources of energy (such as wind and solar energy).

Located off I-84, 35 miles northwest of Baker City

    Fun smaller ski area in Eastern Oregon

    We've been here twice now, once for downhill skiing and a second time for cross-country skiing. Although not as expansive as some of the bigger ski resorts, the quality of skiing here is high and so is the altitude. Snow conditions have been excellent both times we've been here, and the runs and trails haven't been crowded.

    Great little ski area

    This is a great place to take family and friends. It’s not a big mountain but great snow and so affordable for families. There’s also cat skiing on the backside for the more adventurous.

    Great Vibe Cool Terrain

    Finally made my first trip here after 24 years in Boise. Sure glad I did as Tony Lakes is way cool. Very much a hometown hill with little in the way of amenities but long on friendliness. Very picturesque with all the volcanic spires. Terrain has some fun features but vert is short. Enjoy the ride on the fixed grip chair. Didn’t see much for ski touring terrain from lift but maybe it’s there? Nordic trail system looked to be a winner. Would love to try the catski someday. Baker City is a funky cool town to overnight in.

    Sunshine and Powder

    I’m not really supposed to talk about Anthony. It only opens Thursday through Sunday. Had snowed all week including the Wednesday evening I arrived in North Powder. Thursday morning was bright and sunny. Thursday morning brought untracked powder from Hell to breakfast. The planets had aligned for the perfect ski day. By Friday the slopes were all tracked out so I did every loop on the Nordic circuit. Complete solitude, great exercise, and spectacular views. Seriously, this is what keeps me going.

    Pure Ski Experience

    Picturesque drive and setting, close-knit ski community that is welcoming, inexpensive lift ticket, basic food menu, virtually no cell service, one lift, & all of the possibilities! This is one of my favorite places to ski. The vibe is so great, the people are friendly, and it is not trying to pose as something it is not. The ticket price is so reasonable it is well worth a three-four hour drive a few times each winter. The grooming is overall great and there are so many fun hits and awesome tree skiing in bounds. There are steeps and there are cliffs, there are mellow runs and intermediate. The snow (though it is out of anyone’s control) is generally awesome. And if you are into backcountry skiing and riding, the options are pretty fantastic. People in your group don’t like lifts? They have some awesome nordic trails there to enjoy as well. They have fun events throughout the year and a pretty dang honest snow report. Just go check it out if you don’t require a Mt Hood or Mammoth type experience.
