My husband and I are staying in the Lodge at Suttle Lake near Sisters. What types of activities are there to do, and does anyone know if the weather will affect our stay?
The lodge website lists both warm and cold weather activities both there and in the area.
You don't say when you'll be there, so it's impossible to answer your question about the weather.
We will be staying the first week of February, for two nights.
These websites ought to be helpful. If the weather isn't better than it its right now, it could be pretty rough. Cold, ice, snow.
Suttle Lake isn't actually right in the town of Sisters, so if the weather is rough you might have to just get cozy around a fire at the resort. Coming on the Santiam Hwy, (#20) you'll come to the resort well before Sisters. In clear weather you'll be looking up at the jagged peaks of Three Fingered Jack.
Drive carefully, good luck with the weather and enjoy the solitude at the resort. Hopefully, you'll be able to get into Sisters sometime over the weekend. It's a fun place to just walk around.
If you're planning indoor activities, you'll be fine regardless of the weather. ;-) Even if the weather keeps you indoors, I think you'd enjoy the weekend.
