Enjoy thousands of acres of public lands!

Klamath County, Oregon is breathtaking in the winter.
Come here for all your snow sport activities!!!

Can you imagine how wonderful it is at Crater Lake National Park in the winter with up to 25 feet of snow on the ground?!! Plus there are thousands of acres of public lands...all just waiting for snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, downhill skiers, snow boarders, snowshoers, ice skaters, ice fishermen, and dog sledders to explore. There are over 600 miles of groomed trails, a ski resort and untold hundreds of miles of soft powder trails for off-trail explorers to revel on. For the most adventuresome, there is snowmobiling the Pelican Butte Crater– a precipitous, heart-stopping ride! Call us and we’ll hook you up with our skiing clubs and snowmobiling clubs... they’ll be glad to show you around. Ask us, too, about the GREAT resorts that will warm you up and feed you when you’ve exhausted yourself from pleasure!

You will be amazed by the diversity and drama of  Klamath Basin vistas.

With all of our snow, we still have sun break through the clouds almost every day of the year!  Click here for current weather report. Click here for snow pack info.

The members of these snowmobile groups stand ready to show you the best places to snowmobile in the Klamath Basin. Get a room for a few days and give them a call...they can take you to Pelican Butte one day, Medicine Lake the next, Diamond Lake the next and top off your snowmobiling adventures with and off-trail  tour of the less-visited Swan Lake area for the finale!!!!!
