In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Willamette Pass serves Eugene and the upper Willamette Valley but also is attractive for traveling skiers because of the variety of lodges nearby. While everyone in the family will enjoy the terrain at Willamette, advanced skiers will pick eight black diamond runs. There's night skiing and a 1,563 vertical drop. Choose from 29 runs and terrain from beginner to expert, including Oregon’s only six-passenger chair and spring gondola skiing from the summit. This family-oriented Central Oregon resort includes an activity center for skiers with children.
