    Sledding Central Oregon - Wanoga to Elk Lake Resort

    Our mission was to ride sleds from Wanoga Snow Park (near Mt Bachelor in Bend, Oregon)
    to Elk Lake Resort for Beers, Burgers and Fries.

    Wife couldn't go, so I called my buddy Brad and asked him if he
    wanted to go sleddin' He said "DUH!" so I took that as a "Yes!"

    So, we loaded up the Dodge Diesel and met my friends Lane
    and Jackie out at Wanoga Snow Park >>>





    On the bumpy trail from Wanoga to Elk Lake Resort >>>



    Jackie's Polaris Trail 550 - very nice little sled >>>



    Lane's Polaris RMK 800 is Crazy! >>>

    My 700 is fast, but this sled is like a PISSED OFF HORNET!

    It's got pipes and a race can so it flat out hauls booty.

    Give it too much gas and it just takes off like a bat outta hell. BRAAAAAPPP!

    Be careful or you'll get stung!

      Next stop - Elk Lake Resort

      The trail goes from Wanoga Snow Park to Dutchman Snow Park out by Mt Bachelor and then past Sparks Lake, Devil's Lake and on to Elk Lake.

      Eventually we met up with the Elk Lake snow cat. He groomed the trail completely flat allowing us to crank the snowmobiles up to the 60-80 mph range!







      Finally we arrive Elk Lake Resort which is covered with about 10 feet of snow >>>





      Front door is way down in the snow cave >>>







      We're IN like Flynn! >>>

      Ride on,

        After Beers, Burgers and Fries it was time to head back to Wanoga Snow Park by Mt Bachelor.



        Here's Devil's Lake with about 10 feet of snow on top>>>





        Heading back towards Mt Bachelor on the shore of Sparks Lake >>>

          After Sparks Lake Lane decides to ride in the 6 foot deep powder.

          My dumb *** follows him, but being the TOTAL NOOB in powder I sink into a hole and get stuck!

          Jerk in the Snow >>>





          We finally dig it out with the help of an experienced rider who stops to help.

          He knows how to "Boondock" on the Backcountry powder and effortlessly rides it out of the hole (after a lot of digging)

          Through the tunnel towards Wanoga >>>







          Great ride! :-)

          THE END
          Ride on,

            Some great pic there. It looks like a great time. How many miles is that round trip???
            When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels.

            Kindness is like snow - it beautifies everything it covers.

                About 40-50 miles round trip is my guess.

                Not bad at all! Elk Lake Resort ROCKS!!!

                      Yeah, so much snow that I heard their woodshed roof collapsed!

                      I like snow.

                          That's not bad....I am not happy unless I have gone at least 50 miles on an outing...
