Nestled between several mountain ranges, Elk Lake Resort is the perfect destination for your winter wonderland dreams. Accessible through the Cascade Lakes Highway, which is closed to normal traffic for the winter season, a snowcat is one of the few ways to get there.

Leap on a limited offer of a Snowcat, Snowmobile, and Meal Excursion at Elk Lake Resort! 

From Dutchman Flat Sno-Park, a Snowcat will be taking you on a 45-minute drive to the resort. On the way, be sure to glance by the window and appreciate the beauty of the snow-covered Cascade Lakes Highway.

Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by a staff who will get you all geared up and ready for a 3-hour Snowmobile adventure. Explore the wondrous trails and the powdery mountains all by yourself or with your plus one. Always take caution and don’t forget to take pictures of the scenic winter oasis!

After an adrenaline-rushing snowmobile ride, chill and relax at Elk Lake’s cozy restaurant and grab a bite to eat. From their soup that will warm you up to their best-selling burgers, you’ll be glad you worked up an appetite. The restaurants also serve local craft beers, wines and cocktails that you can enjoy while you’re there. Don’t forget to catch a glimpse of Mt. Bachelor and South Sister before you leave! To finish off the Daycation, hop back in the snowcat and we’ll give you a ride back to Dutchman Flat Sno-Park.
