Oregon is an outdoor enthusiast’s heaven, and for good reason. This Pacific Northwest state is filled with breathtaking nature year-round, from budding wildflowers to falling snowflakes. Winter is a great time to take a step away from everyday life and escape to Black Butte Ranch. There’s no shortage of things to do in Sisters, Oregon, and on our 1,800-acre ranch that will have you feeling like you’ve stepped inside a winter wonderland.
A Checklist of Must-Experience Winter Adventures
Whether you’re looking to explore the grounds of the ranch or feel the rush making your way down a mountain, there’s plenty of things to do in and around Sisters that’ll have you fully embracing an Oregon winter.
- Go cross country skiing or snow showing on Big Meadow Golf Course’s groomed trails. There needs to be at least six inches of snow for you and other guests to enjoy this activity.
- Act like a kid again going up and down the sledding hill west of Glax Meadows Golf Course parking lot.
- Visit HooDoo Ski Area for a day of fun, including skiing, skating, and cross-country skiing.
- Pick up your Sno Park permit and hit up Santiam Sno Park and Ray Benson Sno Park.
- Check out the holiday events on the Ranch and in town.
If you plan to explore the skiing and other snow activities available on the ranch but don’t want to bring your own equipment, we have you covered. We offer winter equipment rental on a first-come, first-served basis.
The parks are open on a seasonal basis, so be sure to check into operating hours when planning your visit.
