Skiing Crater Lake: The Best Runs This National Park Has to Offer

Two skiers set out to show the best peaks, views, and lines at Crater Lake National Park.

Curious as to what kind of skiing a giant lake-filled crater in the pacific northwest has to offer? Two friends and outdoor amateurs Danny Bryson and Blake Josephson, who go by “Mediocre Amateur” online, have traveled to the park to find out.

The snow was better than they expected, much better, as they drove further up into the park. In this 10-minute short, you’ll get a sneak peak at routes, maps, and various aspects of what Crater Lake looks like in February. Hint: there’s snow a plenty.

So strap on your skins, grab your camera, and get ready to vicariously skin and ski through some deep pow with this Utah adventure duo.
