MLK Weekend at Anthony Lakes OR – Dry Snow and Family Fun

18 01 2023

I just spent a few days at Oregon’s best dry powder ski area – Anthony Lakes, right outside La Grande. It’s a low-key family oriented ski resort with prices from yesteryear. On Thursday January 12th, it was their 60th anniversary and lift passes were $2! On other days, however, the regular price for a day pass is $50. Which is still a bargain by today’s standards. I stayed in La Grande with my friend Lisa and her husband Mike. They even put fresh flowers in my room!

Thursday was a few inches fresh snow.

Anthony Lakes has a base elevation of 7,100 ft, so it gets snow when many other resorts in the region get rain. Families set up elaborate tail gate parties in the parking lot. Friday was some kind of Kid’s Learning Day. I really enjoyed watching the kids learning.

My friend Lisa is such a super host and great to ski with! I’m looking forward to visiting again sometime this season.
