Anthony Lakes

Two feet of snow has fallen in the past week pf January 2022 at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort.

BAKER CITY — Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort will be open Thursday, Jan. 6, through Sunday, Jan. 9, but the lodge will be closed this weekend.

"Already short-staffed this season, Anthony Lakes has a handful of employees out due to COVID," the ski area announced in its daily report Jan. 6. "To prevent further spread and to keep our staff and community safe, we feel it is best to close the lodge. We plan to reopen again next weekend, staffing dependent."

Anthony Lakes has had 24 inches of new snow this week, although a passing warm front raised the temperature to 40 degrees the morning of Jan. 6. Colder temperatures are forecast into the weekend. The resort, in the Elkhorn Mountains about 34 miles northwest of Baker City, has a snow base of 54 inches.
