Waldo Lake Sno-Park

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This site is fairly popular with snowmobile enthusiasts, but parking is limited. Skiers may want to use the Gold Lake Sno-park instead and access Waldo Lake Road by skiing up Gold Lake Road to Gold Lake Trail. Two miles up Gold Lake Trail, Fuji Mountain Trail leads west to Waldo Lake Road. Waldo Lake Road is a shared snowmobile/ski route, but snowmobiles are not permitted on other nordic trails in this area. A fit and well-prepared skier may choose to travel approximately 8 miles out the road to the Betty Lake Trail, the Twins and the South Waldo Shelter (three-sided with a wood stove and wooden bed.)
