Ashland’s Pleasant Climate

Contrary to the typical rainy climate we tend to associate with Oregon, an Ashland weather map rarely shows rain. The city’s average number of sunny days is quite comparable to the national number. Winter temperatures generally do not go far below freezing, and the actual city sees little, if any, snow. But don’t worry if you’re looking to ski—the Mt. Ashland Ski Area is high enough up that it gets plenty of snow. Weather in the summer averages in the 60s and 70s, with highs above 80 during July. If you plan to do some hiking, it’s best to book your Ashland vacation rentals for the summer.

The mountains and rivers of Ashland
