Visitors to the T-Bar Lounge at Mt. Ashland Ski Area are noticing a new label.
In the past, Valley View Winery in Jacksonville sold bottles of its red and white wines.
Now, wine appreciators can order a $4 glass or a $15 bottle of Mt. Ashland Merlot or Mt. Ashland Caliban Chardonnay made by Valley View Winery.
Adults 21 and older also may bring alcoholic beverages purchased in the lounge to tables on the second floor where minors and brown-bag lunches are allowed.
The T-Bar Lounge is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekends and holidays and from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays. The ski area is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Call 541-482-2897 or see www.mtashland.com for more information.
Proceeds from wine sales will go into a fund that the nonprofit ski resort could use to add 90 parking spaces, widen runs within the existing ski area and re-contour the Sonnet beginner hill.
