D makes me eat my words or at least a bit of snow
Crater Lake National Park gets more than its share of snow. The Pacific Northwest is noted for precipitation and the lake's elevation and relative location to northwesterly winds makes for lots of it. The average snowfall is 44 feet per year so it's no wonder that the Rim Road is not open in winter. At this elevation, snow can linger well into summer.
When we arrived in early July 2008 we learned that a third of the Rim Road was still not open for the season due to very high snowfall and an unusually cold spring. Though it made getting around a bit tougher, it was great for us to have so much snow to play in since we live in South Florida and do not get to see it much. Also, it made for some beautiful photos as the peaks ringing the lake were all still heavily covered in the white stuff.
