Ashland glistens with fresh snow, welcoming you and your family with easy to access winter adventures. From the shopping and cocktails to the tranquil trails, come experience the magic.
Savory Winter Delights
Savor the flavors at over 100 restaurants. Sip local at one of the tasting rooms with humble winemakers ready to share their varietals with you. Enjoy pampering yourself at one of Ashland’s spas, followed by shopping at unique retailers, and round out the day with an unforgettable dinner and wine pairing.
Snow Angels and Pirouettes
If it is the outdoors you crave, Ashland provides snowcapped hills and Mt. Ashland for skiing, snowboarding and backcountry beauty. Families can enjoy the ice rink in Lithia Park or a day on the mountain. With a great kid’s menu and the widest selection of local brews and guest taps, Caldera Brewing Company makes everyone feel at home.
A Bright, Musical World
For over 25 years, Ashland has celebrated the season by lighting and decorating the town. This year, you can also enjoy the new Winter Soundwalk Produced by Rogue World Music; the experience includes eight art installations coupled with music from around the world. Each installation showcases how cultures embrace the changing of the seasons. Self-guided via a QR code download, this socially distanced activity adds a new element of culture to town.
