Scratch off another item our your Southern Oregon bucket list this winter with the Rushmore Society as we adventure around the rim of Crater Lake.
Snowshoeing is easy to learn, and can provide a great little workout to boot.
Our basic Crater Lake Adventure is relatively flat, as we begin at the Village Rim Lodge and skit the edge above Crater Lake, finishing up on a fun little sledding hill, for a total of roughly 4.5 miles.
IF SNOW CONDITIONS ARE CHALLENGING:
We can also begin from the lower parking lot, for a climb up to the Rim via the Raven Trail, which is indeed incredible, and more challenging. This adventure is available when the road to the Rim is impassable.
If you have questions about our route, required fitness levels, and general participation, just hit us up on Facebook or email.
As always, the Rushmore Society is a social organization, not an outdoor guide group, so shoe at your own risk.
SNOWSHOE RENTALS: We suggest the following local businesses to rent snowshoes from: Mountain Provision in Ashland. The SOU Outdoor Program in Ashland. Blackbird Ski Shop and REI in Medford.
All have tons of rentals available.
WHEN TO RENT: Look to rent the evening before, as most shops open at or after our departure time. Check closing time of your preferred shop.
COST: Usually runs about $10-15 at most shops.
NOTE: Winter time conditions can change rapidly, and road or weather conditions may require a rescheduling of this event.
