Crater Lake Ski

March 6 - March 8

The annual ski trip to Crater Lake will take place this year on Friday through Sunday, March 6-8. Lodging will be at Prospect Historic Hotel Bed and Breakfast Inn, Motel and Dinner House; the same as in the past, hosted by Fred Wickman. The cost per individual excluding alcohol for two nights’ lodging, two dinners, and two breakfasts will be $186 for a bed in the Motel wing, and $216 for a bed in the historic Hotel. TransportaOon to and from both Crater Lake and the Prospect Hotel will be on your own.

Typically, people drive to Crater Lake on Friday (access is only by the south or west entrance on highway 62 in winter), ski a half day, then drive to the hotel (about 1 hour from Crater Lake). A dinner of spagheS (vegetarian or meat) is served Friday evening, with Southern Oregon wine, beer, and cocktails available at extra charge (a corking fee of $11 is added if you bring your own wine). Saturday morning, aUer a buffet breakfast, everyone heads back to Crater Lake to ski for the day. Lunches can be ordered from the hotel ahead of Ome ($13 for a 6” hoagie, chips, fruit, and cookies), purchased at Crater Lake lodge, or brought from home. Saturday evening back at the hotel, Fred serves a dinner of prime rib or dill roasted salmon or vegetarian lasagne. On Sunday morning a second buffet breakfast is served, and everyone departs either for more skiing or a direct return to Bend. Since there is no control over the weather or snow condiOons, it is advised to bring hiking boots (trails are nearby the hotel in Prospect) and snowshoes in addiOon to skis.

Although the cost this year reflects a $5/night increase over last year, this is sOll an excepOonal value. To achieve this cost, we will occupy the rooms available up to their capacity. So a room with a queen bed (Q) and two twins (T), will ideally be assigned to two singles and one couple. The rooms and number of people they support for the two different wings are shown in the table below.

Given this arrangement, please let me know using the enclosed form if you would like to be assigned to the same room as someone else (e.g. a couple or two singles) or as part of a group of four or six. That will enable me to assign the rooms most sensibly. Please note that the twin beds are in an adjoining room to the queen(s). It is also possible to have a private room for a 20% surcharge.

Details to Sign Up

I’ve included two forms that need to be filled out: 1) CONC Overnight Trip Waiver and 2) the food choice and roommate preference form(s). Please fill these out and return to me along with a check for the appropriate amount, made out to Eric Ness: 55023 Mallard Drive, Bend, OR 97707. A single form in each case will cover a couple. I will assign rooms based on the order in which I receive the forms and check; Queens go first, then doubles. Hopefully some of you will request a 4 or 6 person room using the roommate request form. Email me (eric.alan.ness@gmail.com) or call (971-708-3404) with quesOons.
