Cross Country Ski Around Suttle Lake

Cross Country Ski Around Suttle Lake

Monday, October 31, 2011

Suttle Lake is located about 15 miles north of Sisters, Oregon on US Highway 20 and is part of the Deschutes National Forest. The lake was named after an early pioneer called John Settle, who came across the lake during a hunting trip. The lake is quite large, covering an area of about 250 acres and is approximately 44 feet deep with a maximum depth of 75 deep.

Suttle Lake is known for its gorgeous, sparkling blue water and has a 3.2 mile cross country skiing trail that wraps around it with several starting locations available. Plowed parking is available and snow conditions are  variable depending on which side of the lake you are on. The north side is known for having less snow and is the determining factor when assessing the trails accessibility. The trail is superb for beginners as it is mostly flat and relatively easy. So, if you are a beginner looking for somewhere great to start to learn how to cross country ski, or perhaps already a seasoned skier simply looking for a new, beautiful area to explore, Suttle Lake is just the place!
