During the winter months we love to snowshoe & cross-country ski (on non-groomed trail of course) in the area. Below are photos & maps of the places we frequent.
Broken Top & South Sister as seen from Bend.
Dutchman Flat Sno-Park
Bluebird day at Dutchman Flat. Broken Top peaking up in the background.
Warming Hut at Edison.
Newberry Caldera (10 Mile Sno-Park)
Thousands of people see this falls in the summer months. The only you can see it in winter is via skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobile.
Ray Benson Sno-Park
North Blowout Ski Hut & Three Finger Jack.
Swampy Lakes Sno-Park
You just have to love the trails at Swampy Lake Sno-Park.
Snowshoe trail to Nordeen Shelter.
Upper Three Creeks Sno-Park
Trailhead is across from the Three Creeks sno-park parking area.
The relatively new snowshoe trail goes through a section that contained the historical Poles Creek Fire.
The snowshoe trail ends at Jeff View shelter, named for the incredible views of Mt. Jefferson on a clear day. Because of the overcast skies on our visit, we missed the sights.
