Izaak Walton Inn
All Ability Ski or Snowshoe
We will take Amtrak overnight to Essex, Montana, adjacent to Glacier National Park for a wonderful ski vacation! Leave Portland on Thursday afternoon and arrive Friday morning to sparkling snow and the cozy Izaak Walton Inn. On Friday, ski or snowshoe on the 30 km of groomed trails, or relax in the Finnish sauna or olympic size hot tub. On Saturday, we will take a van up to Marias Pass on the Continental Divide for some true off-trail skiing, with magnificent views. On Sunday, we will travel to the Going to the Sun Highway, which is not plowed in the winter. On Monday, we can ski the magnificent Dickey Bowl, the groomed trails, or other ski trails in the area. Each night, we can enjoy a gourmet meal in the restaurant, read a good book by the fire, participate in exciting ONC board games, or relax. On Monday night, we will board the westbound overnight train back to Portland. As we pull back into the train station in Portland on Tue morning, you will wonder why you waited so long to take this trip.
