Winter brings the opportunity to snowshoe (complimentary snowshoes for guests) and cross country ski at Crater Lake and surrounding areas. Snowmobile on hundreds of miles of local trails. Drive the Volcanic Scenic Byway... it's a great way to spend a day touring this magnificent part of the country. Birding is a year round activity.
