This trip is open to ONC members - it’s only $27 to join!

The Classic Crater Lake Ski Trip is back! The Crater Lake rim, at 7,000 feet, averages 44 feet of snow a year. Join the ONC for the traditional trip to Crater Lake. We’ll board the deluxe coach in Portland at 4:30 PM on Friday, March 1, and proceed down I-5 while sharing in the world famous “Rolling Pot-Luck.” We have invited members of the Willamette Chapter of ONC to join us. The next morning after a hearty gourmet breakfast at the historic Prospect Hotel we’ll take a quick ride to the rim where 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. We will separate into groups based on abilities and endurance. A gourmet dinner will be provided on Saturday night at Prospect Inn, Sunday will be another day of different trails, different tours, and more exploring. We can even take a ranger led interpretive snowshoe tour. Later in the afternoon, we’ll board our coach and head toward home, stopping for a special dinner on the way, arriving back in Portland about 10 pm.

There are two types of accommodations: The Historic Prospect Inn which has one double or queen bed in each room for two people and the adjacent motel-like rooms, which have two or three beds per room, but everyone who wishes can have their own bed. The Historic Inn costs $25 per person more. Please indicate which you wish.

Trip limit: 45 participants, including the leader.

Cost: Only $275 per person in motel-like building; $300 per person in Historic Prospect Inn. These prices are lower than they have been for 6 years! This includes all bus transportation, two breakfasts, a gourmet dinner, and a dinner on the way home.
