Getting to the winter oasis that is Elk Lake Resort might be challenging especially with Cascade Lakes Highway closing for the season. But rest your worries, and gather your friends for a Snowcat and Meal Excursion Package.

Park your car at Dutchman Flat Sno-Park and we’ll take you on a dreamy Snowcat ride through the snow-covered Cascade Lakes Highway to Elk Lake Resort. Enjoy good conversation with friends over your $35-worth of dining certificate at the restaurant or take in the scenery of the surrounding mountains with a cup of coffee or your choice of local microbrews on tap.

After the dining experience, hop back on the Snowcat for another peaceful ride back to Dutchman Flat Sno-Park.
