We are Forest Service volunteers patrolling out of the Gold Lake Snow Park about 30 miles past Oakridge a half mile before the Willamette Pass Ski resort. If you are a cross country skier or on snowshoes be sure to stop in the cabin and ask about joining us. We provide training and a lot of fun. We also welcome volunteers from the Bend/Sunriver/La Pine area.
