About Elk Lake

Located just 25 miles southwest of Bend, Elk Lake is home to a variety of summer and winter activities.  From kayaking and fishing to snowmobiling and snowshoeing, Elk Lake has lots to offer all year long. Don’t forget that Elk Lake Resort has rental equipment available, so get out and try something new!


CrossOver Revolution
Mar 2 – Mar 4 all-day
CrossOver Revolution
Todd McViney (past employee) organizes an annual event at Elk Lake Resort that celebrates the marriage of the two cultures.  Dubbed CrossOver Revolution, McViney invites backcountry riders and skiers to mix with snowmobilers.  Think of it as Camp David for two very different populations of backcountry enthusiast.
The idea was to combine backcountry skier’s snow and avalanche expertise with the snowmobiling community’s mechanical know-how over a weekend of backcountry exploration and basecamp revelry.
Last year the event drew several dozen backcountry enthusiasts who swapped knowledge, stories and stoke.  This year, McViney expects close to 100 people for the event that features daytime missions into the backcountry plus a tow-in quarter pipe that serves as added evening entertainment!
