community guide to Eugene and beyond

Oregon Skyway

Willamette Pass is approximately a 1 1/2 hour drive on Hwy 58 from the Eugene area. Every year Willamette Pass converts their main ski-lift to a wonderful form of transportation and sightseeing tool. When you arrive at the top you are welcome to hike, sightsee, mountain bike, play Frisbee Golf on a professionally designed course or simply have a Picnic.

Tickets for the Oregon Skyway gondola ride can be purchased at the Lodge.
