Elk Lake is winter magic. A group of friends ski from Mt. Bachelor to Elk Lake annually and it is a great place. The staff is friendly and hospitable. The scenery is beautiful. The food is good. I highly recommend the bbq ribs which literally fall of the bone. The ribs come with fries and the best beans I have tasted. That could just be the 12 mile ski trip talking . . . Look forward to staying overnight some time in their cabins. It must be an incredible place to stay and cross country ski. It is like its own little town for snowmobilers as well. No snowmobile? They have snow cats with tracks to haul you in and out if needed.
