Check out this great video series from This couple has cycled thousands and thousandes of miles in locations throughout the USA and the world, and their favorite place is...Oregon!

School starts soon, so does ski season!

The Fall term at EOU is about to begin and the weather is starting to cool (slightly) here in Eastern Oregon. Snow isn't too far away and the Anthony Lakes Ski Area season pass deals for EOU students are just as good as last year. Less than $300 to ski for a whole season at a great resort less than an hour away from the EOU campus. Last year, when other ski areas were struggling to open, Anthony Lakes had a solid base and consistently cold weather. This year we're hoping for an even better year full of powder days!

EOU and Anthony Lakes will again be partnering to offer skiing and snowboarding classes for EOU students. Ask your advisor or contact the EOU Outdoor Program for more information on registering for these classes.
