Winter in the Wallowas, Northeast Oregon

Our wilderness backdrop is perfect for a day of snow shoeing. For the more spirited Nordic skier or snow mobile enthusiasts, hit the mountains at the Salt Creek Sno-Park or Ferguson Ridge Ski Area.

The Wallowas is where you’ll find the solitude and adventure every winter sportsperson craves.
