Visit the Wallowas! One of Oregon's 7 Wonders
Why not leave the fast pace and fenced-in views of urban living and trade it in for the beauty of winter in the Wallowas! The scatter of golden Tamaracks across the backcountry and the feel of the crisp, cool air lets us know the season is changing. The chill in the breeze will soon bring the first powder blanket of snow over the back country of the Wallowas – the look and feel in Wallowa County will once again become wild and adventurous.
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. The cold days are made easier at the Sno-Park with a warming hut, easy parking, and restrooms. The Wallowas is where you’ll find the solitude and adventure every winter sportsperson craves. Be sure to get January 18-21st on your 2018 calendar for the Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Race. This is Oregon’s only Iditarod and Yukon Quest Qualifier!
After a day in the backcountry, return to your cabin for a quiet retreat and relax in front of a warm, crackling fire with that special someone or your family, or that group of fun-loving friends you enjoyed for the afternoon. There are village gift shops, galleries, pubs, and restaurants open for you to experience the flavor of Wallowa County.
Mark these calendar dates for the holidays! Jingle through Joseph Oregon November 25 with a Christmas Bazaar 24-25 and December 1-2; and the Enterprise Winterfest with the most beautiful winter parades in Eastern Oregon December 8-9th. Christmas will be unforgettable this year when spent in the Wallowas.
