Ever wanted to know what Lassen Volcanic National Park’s Cinder Cone and Lava Beds look like underneath several feet of snow? You’re in luck. Volunteer ski patroller Ross Nayduch ventured out on a 8-mile one-way cross country ski journey to Butte Lake.

He captured some stunning images revealing the striking difference between winter and summer Lassen. All that powder makes you want to strap on your board or skis and trek to the backcountry. Check out his photos posted to the Lassen Volcanic National Park Facebook page:

That’s right. That’s Cinder Cone and the Lava Beds covered in snow! For context, see what this place looks like without the snow:

Now those are some cool shots! Doesn’t it make you want to go on a winter adventure in Lassen Volcanic National Park?
