Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort offers premier Nordic skiing in a spectacular setting. With 30 kilometers of groomed lanes and 11 km of single track and snowshoe trails, the Nordic area is a winter recreation wonderland. Now our Mud Lake Loop is open to all activities including your best animal friend and snowmobiles, so be aware and courteous to those around you. The Nordic Center Lodge is a great place to warm up beside the fireplace, get a snack, buy your trail pass and purchase or rent Nordic equipment and gear. The historic landmark lodge was built by the Oregon CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) during the Great Depression. During summer, the lodge is managed by the Forest Service as a guest rental, offering wonderful views of the lake and surrounding granite peaks.
