Steens Mountains in Winter

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We visit Steens Mountain in eastern Oregon, an isolated, rugged landscape that attracts only the truly adventurous. Carved out by ancient glaciers, Steens rises 10,000 ft. above sea level, with steep canyon walls covered in 12ft of snow. Visitors on snowmobiles and x-country skis can expect to find beauty and solitude here, especially in winter, with thousands of acres of quiet, snow covered hills to explore.
