Heavy snow closes Rim Drive at Crater Lake park

Officials at Crater Lake National Park have closed the park’s Rim Drive and north entrance because of snow and ice.

Park officials said heavy snow over the weekend deposited 13 inches at park headquarters and even more along the rim of the caldera of the ancient volcano that exploded and eventually formed Crater Lake, the deepest lake in the nation.

The South and West Entrances to the park remain open to visitor traffic year round. Information about road, weather and avalanche conditions at the park can be obtained by calling the park at 541-594-3000.
