Cross Country Skiing in Elk Lake Resort, Bend, Oregon USA

Trail :
7 miles (11.26 km)
Elk Lake is a lake located along the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, only at eleven miles passing Mount Bachelor in Central Oregon Cascade Mountains.

Relatively close to Bend, it is more or less a 35 minute drive. However, in winter there is no other way to access the resort but by the resort’s transportation or via your snowmobile and maybe by skiing for the most fit and daring ones.

It is an 11 mi/17.70 km ski trip through some of the most breathtaking scenery of Central Oregon. In the resort, there is a nicely and regularly attended 7 mi/11.26 km trail for the guests of the resort, who want to do some country skiing and is located at the area around the lake. You should not miss visiting Canyon Lake, a lake beautifully shaped every year by ice crystals, a spectacle worth seeing while being there.

Regarding accommodation, you find a range of cabins at the resort, but you won’t have problems locating something else nearby. Note that you can rent your gear at the resort.
