Oregons Little Switzerland
Our beautiful Wallowa Mountains are known as “Little Switzerland” or the “Alps of the Americas” and it really is no wonder once you get out of our little towns and start heading into the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area why we have received the nicknames. The Wallowa’s inter-continental snowpack often reaches over 400 inches a winter providing skiing opportunities that will challenge a skier of all levels.
