Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Team

The Wanoga Sno-Park ski and snowshoe loop is a perfect place for beginners to practice or for veterans who want to take some laps around the trail with the dog. For the skiers, the groomed trail weaves in and out of an open meadow of lodgepole pines, is almost entirely flat, and is composed of an inner and outer loop that total 2 miles. There is a short 1-mile loop for snowshoers, but the tight grouping of pines and firs along this loop limits the scenery.

The Wanoga trail system is one of several networks that were built with dog-friendly winter recreation in mind. DogPAC, whose mission is to promote the health and enjoyment of dogs and their guardians through the provision of off-leash recreation opportunities in Central Oregon, maintains the trails with the help of volunteers and donations that support trail maintenance. You can learn more about DogPAC at their website.

 

Backcountry Safety

Winter backcountry adventures can be dangerous outdoor activities that pose significant risks as conditions affecting safety (i.e. weather, snowpack stability, avalanche hazard) are constantly changing. Prior to engaging in these activities each individual should get the proper training to make safe decisions and be equipped to use avalanche safety resources and tools. Please visit our Backcountry Skiing and Avalanche Safety post to learn more.
