All Ability Ski and Snowshoe
Experience one of the seven wonders of Oregon on skis or snowshoes, and without crowds!
The Crater Lake rim, at 7,000 feet, averages 44 feet of snow a year. Join the ONC-PDX for the big trip at Crater Lake. Last year we had fresh snow and sunny days – and some of the best skiing of the winter.
We’ll board the deluxe coach at noon in Portland on Friday and proceed down I-5 while sharing in an appetizer based “Rolling Pot-Luck.” We will arrive in Prospect at around 6 pm, giving you time to enjoy your room and a spaghetti dinner in the historic Prospect Hotel. The next morning, after a hearty gourmet breakfast at the hotel, we will take a quick ride to the rim and we’ll spend the day enjoying the spectacular snow formations and views of the lake and surrounding mountains while skiing as far as our legs can carry us. Sunday will be another day of different trails, different tours, and more exploring. If you want, you can take a ranger led interpretive snowshoe tour. Later in the afternoon, we will board our coach and head toward home.
We are going to continue with the excellent (and fun) coaching with Shelley and Dave from Wy’East Nordic to offer training tips to all who want it as we ski.
There are three types of accommodations: The Historic Prospect Hotel which has one double/queen bed in each room for two people (ideal for couples), single options in the hotel and the adjacent motel-like rooms, where participants will likely share large rooms with two or three beds per room and, in some cases, kitchenettes.
Trip limit: 35 participants, including the leader
Cost: $320 motel / $368 hotel per person and $468/person hotel-single, depending upon whether you stay in the Motel or Hotel.
There are currently 15 spots remaining.
