Crater Lake, South Entrance
Winter at Crater Lake National Park is a time of extreme weather and extreme beauty. The average annual snowfall is more than 44 feet. Snowstorms frequently create whiteout conditions, but a sunny day yields breathtaking views of the pristine lake, steep caldera walls, and snow-covered rim. Most winter visitors simply view the lake from the parking lot. Skiers can explore farther along the rim or choose nearby trails through trees that provide shelter from foul weather. There are no groomed trails and skiers often have to break track, but the effort seems trivial in exchange for the experience of skiing while surrounded by such beauty. Track Quality: Fair classic skiing, no skating
