Skiing & Snow Activities

Winter is a wondrous time to visit the Ranch. There’s snow-filled recreation both on and off the Ranch, so the cold weather won’t cramp your style. At the Ranch, you can cross country ski and snowshoe around Big Meadow or Glaze Meadow Golf Course on groomed trails (minimum of six inches of snow required). Our 18 miles of paved trails are another option to get you out of doors. If you didn’t bring your own equipment, we’ve got you covered: cross country ski and snowshoe rentals are available at Glaze Meadow Rental Shop. A sledding hill is located west of the Glaze Meadow Golf Course parking lot on Ponderosa.

Black Butte Ranch is the official lodging partner for HooDoo Ski Area, a family-friendly ski area located just 13 miles west of the Ranch. Hoodoo offers excellent snow conditions that complement 1,035 feet of vertical drop. It also features 15.8 kilometers of groomed trails for cross country skiing and skating, and the Autobahn Tubing Park for a fun family outing.

Santiam Sno Park is located across the highway from the Hoodoo entrance road. It’s a popular sledding area with nearby trails for skiers and snowshoers. Ray Benson Sno Park, about one mile from Hoodoo, offers a variety of trails for winter sports. Dog teams, snowmobilers, skiers, snowshoers and skijorers love this popular winter sno park. All parks require Sno Park permits, available at Black Butte Ranch, Hoodoo and other Sisters locations.

For the more serious skier, mighty Mt. Bachelor is also an within driving distance. With 3,365 feet of vertical drop, it’s a world-renown attraction for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, including Olympic-level athletes.
