Natural Idylls Sunriver Sunriver is the Northwest’s premier destination resort where the emphasis is on fun ... for any age and any season. During the warm weather, you’ll find world-class golf courses, indulgent day spas and tax-free shopping at The Village at Sunriver. Outdoor adventures abound for families. There's biking on 35 miles of paved trails or swimming and sliding at the SHARC, or trail riding in the wilderness. Explore the Deschutes River by stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing from the marina. If running is your passion, don’t miss the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival triathlon, marathon and family runs in June or the Marathon for a Cause over Labor Day weekend. In the winter, Sunriver is the closest ski village to Mt. Bachelor and provides a welcoming and romantic winter wonderland with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right out your back door. Regardless of how you spend the day, Sunriver will pamper you at night with a range of luxury accommodations. Beautifully furnished vacation home rentals, condominiums or hotel suites are ideal for everything from romantic retreats to family reunions and corporate business meetings. The Owl's Nest in Sunriver Resort, Hola! and the new Sunriver Brewing Company only begin the list of culinary delights of this AAA Four Diamond destination.

Downtown Bend

Freedom Ride

Mountain Lifestyle Bend When it was known as “Farewell Bend,” it was a village composed of a few makeshift buildings on the banks of the Deschutes River; the last hospitable spot pioneers saw on their epic wagon train journeys west over the Cascade Range. Today, Bend remains not only a hospitable place, it has become the setting of nationally recognized sporting and recreational events. When it comes to events, take your pick. From triathlons and multisport races, to ski races, running races, mountain bike races, fly-fishing competitions and more, Bend is an athlete’s reward. For the less hardcore athletes, there’s a lazy float down the Deschutes River through Bend’s Old Mill District. Hikers will love the Deschutes River Trail and taking their pooches for some play time at one of several dog parks. If you get too ensnared by Bend’s recreational options, you’ll miss a vibrant cultural scene that’s alive with art galleries, art walks, a full schedule of outdoor concerts with top musical acts and a lively

theater scene. More than 20 breweries are behind Bend’s exploding craft beer culture. On any evening out, take in one of the town’s brewpubs and drink in Oregon’s burgeoning “beervana.” Feeling a little more formal? Try one of the dozens of white-linen restaurants or go the other direction with great eats from a food cart. The rest is easy when you’re staying at a destination resort, a chic urban hotel or a vacation rental in town.

Must see: Tumalo Falls as it tumbles 90 feet to Tumalo Creek. Ten miles west of Bend, the falls are a top destination for hikers, bikers, snowshoers, cross-country skiers and photographers year-round. Must do: Hike the Deschutes River Trail and rendezvous at

one of Bend’s top-notch craft breweries on the Bend Ale Trail.

Sisters Rodeo

Sisters Rodeo

Western Adventure Sisters

Take a small town with a slow pace of life and overlay an everexpanding creative culture and a long-standing outdoor recreation tradition, and you have Sisters. In the shadow of the snowcapped Three Sisters, the town’s artistic vibe is a blend of art galleries, music (Sisters Folk Festival) and crafts (Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show). The outdoor vibe is enhanced with the Peterson Ridge trail system that starts just blocks from the heart of downtown. This dirt is popular with runners, hikers and mountain bikers. There’s hiking and backpacking in the Three Sisters Wilderness, fishing in Whychus Creek and golf at Black Butte Ranch and Aspen Lakes. Plus, three of Oregon’s Scenic Bikeways originate from this quaint little town. Dining options include two superb bakeries, a local brewpub and restaurants that appeal to everyone from the French gourmet to the steak-and-potatoes lover.

Must see: The hundreds of colorful quilts hung everywhere in town during the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.

Sisters Folk Festival



Must do: “The Biggest Little Show in the World” – The Sisters Rodeo – held every June for more than 70 years.

Metolius Basin

Travelers will find Camp Sherman a tranquil paradise on the banks of the crystal-clear waters of the Metolius River bound by old-growth Ponderosa pines. Today, Camp Sherman is a year-round mecca sought by fly-fishermen, hikers and mountain bikers, who have miles of stream to fish and trail to ride and hike. More bustling in nature, the nearby Black Butte Ranch Resort has stood the test of time with two exceptional golf courses and all types of family fun from horseback riding to swimming, hiking and mountain bike riding. Not far from Black Butte Ranch is Suttle Lake, offering an idyllic summer experience. The lake is a playground for sailors and anglers, and has a hiking and mountain biking trail that circles the lake. The Lodge at Suttle Lake offers luxury and rustic cabins along with exceptional dining. A bit farther up the highway is the Hoodoo Ski Area, which has a loyal following among skiers and snowboarders alike. In summer, the area close by the ski resort is dotted with campgrounds and close to some of Oregon’s most treasured hiking—the Pacific Crest Trail.

Must see: The spot where the virginal Metolius River springs from its headwaters and also showcases one of the best views of Mt. Jefferson. Must do: Stay along the banks of the Metolius in a cozy cabin or an elegant country retreat.

The Hub

Downtown Redmond


Long noted as Central Oregon’s commercial air hub (RDM), Redmond has transformed itself into a rejuvenated town with upscale restaurants, brewpubs, lodging, a bustling farmers market in summer and outdoor ice skating in winter. Add in a few open-air music events and a growing antique and art scene and Redmond is fast undergoing a renaissance. Smith Rock State Park in Terrebonne is a top attraction in Redmond’s backyard. Its umber-colored sheer rock cliffs are known among rock climbers worldwide yet also known regionally for the hiking and mountain biking trails.

Must see: The Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo or the display of hundreds of flags in Flag City, USA. Must do: Walk Redmond's downtown

antique district and relax with a brew at 7th Street Brew House. In the winter, enjoy outdoor ice skating.

Paulina Lake

Newberry Country La Pine

The Newberry Crater in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument is a must-see for any budding geologist. The caldera is a spectacular shield volcano and what's left when its dome collapsed sometime between 500,000 and 2,000 years ago. From its top, you can witness a lot of the makeup of Central Oregon—beautiful lakes (Paulina and East lakes) and large lava fields such as the Big Obsidian Flow. This ocean of lava was used by NASA astronauts in the 1960s as training for what the surface of the moon would be like. Both East Lake and Paulina Lake have small natural hot springs on their banks for public use.

Must see: The craters running with Paulina and East lakes from the summit of Paulina Peak.

Must do: Experience La Pine's unique heritage and July 4th festivities at La Pine Frontier Days and Rodeo, or make time in June for Oregon's only Rhubarb Festival.

Smith Rock State Park

River Canyon Country Terrebonne

This tiny hamlet just north of Madras is the gateway to Smith Rock State Park and the birthplace of sport climbing in America. Terrebonne may be small, but many of the world's top climbers have paid her a visit after clipping bolts at Smith Rock. Terrebonne is also a popular spot for some of the best fly-fishing on the Crooked River. This spectacular little place was one of the settings for the 2001 movie, Swordfish, starring John Travolta, Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman. The Terrebonne Depot restaurant, housed in a renovated 100-year-old train station, is another good reason to make your way there.

Must see: The beautiful rock formations at Smith Rock State Park, with climbers far up the sheer rock walls. Look for slackline walkers at Monkey Face teetering hundreds of feet in the air. Must do: Stop for regional wine tasting at Maragas Winery, then treat yourself to local fare at Terrebonne Depot. Enjoy a scoop of world-famous huckleberry ice cream at Juniper Junction.

Crooked River Ranch

Located above the steep basalt canyon walls of the Deschutes River, Crooked River Ranch is best known for its golf, hiking, water skiing and fishing. Golfers can take a short—and exhilarating—shot over the river canyon on one of the course’s signature holes. Everyone should hike out to the Crooked River overlooks and peer hundreds of feet down into the tumbling waters of Steelhead Falls. Anglers will want to fly-fish the Foley Waters section of the Deschutes River for native rainbow trout.

Must see: The view down into the Crooked River from Otter Bench. Must do: Play a round or two on the scenic and fun Crooked River

Ranch Golf Course, a par 71 “with teeth.”


w w w . v i s i t c e n t r a l o r e g o n . c o m


The most historical town in Central Oregon, Prineville serves as the starting point for fishing trips along the Crooked River or the Prineville and Ochoco reservoirs. Camping, hiking and mountain biking are some of the area’s best in the Ochoco National Forest and Maury Mountains. Take in local history with a visit to the stately Crook County Courthouse, Central Oregon’s oldest public structure. Add in the Crooked River Roundup, the annual rodeo, and you get a sense of what makes Prineville authentic and Western. Fueled by economic growth from its new Facebook and Apple data centers, Prineville is experiencing a renaissance with more places to dine, a new brewpub and choice lodging.

Must see: The winding Crooked River as it flows from Prineville Reservoir into town. Must do: Hit the Crooked River Round up in June or bring a gambling spirit to the Pari-Mutuel Horse Races in July.

High Desert Summers

Paddle on the Cascade Lakes

Many people think of skiing and Mt. Bachelor when they envision Central Oregon. Those who do are missing at least half of the fun. Summer makes its own fans.

The Deschutes River has always been the lifeblood of Central Oregon and vital to any “must do” list. Taking a refreshing and relaxing inner tube float down the Deschutes from Bend’s Farewell Bend Park is required river therapy. The best part of the float—apart from its highly social nature—is the availability of a shuttle bus ride from Drake Park back to Farewell Bend Park to do it all over again. If recreational kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddling is more to your liking, there are acres of open water with great views out over the mountain and forest landscape in the High Cascades Lakes of the Deschutes National Forest or on Paulina and East lakes in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument. For those who fancy lakes with houseboating, water skiing and swimming, there’s Lake Billy Chinook near Madras. There’s also fishing in all the region’s lakes such as Cultus and Davis lakes and reservoirs such as Crane Prairie and Wickiup, and, of course, the Deschutes, Crooked and Metolius rivers. The Deschutes is famous for its native “redside” rainbow trout and its annual steelhead runs. The smaller Metolius River is known for being home to monster bull trout. Crane Prairie Reservoir, Davis Lake and East Lake


w w w . v i s i t c e n t r a l o r e g o n . c o m

are all noted for their trophy trout. On dry land, Central Oregon is the home to more than 200 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails. There’s a wide variety from mellow cruisers for beginners to technical trails requiring expert skills. The singletrack trail network is also well used by trail runners and hikers. The best hiking, however, is in the Three Sisters Wilderness, at Newberry National Volcanic Monument and at Smith Rock State Park—a world-famous rock climbing venue. Climbers now also flock to the basalt columns at Trout Creek Recreation Area close to Madras. Back on pavement, Central Oregon has become a hub for road cycling, with routes fanning out in every direction from Bend. The region also hosts the Cascade Cycling Classic, the longest running road cycling stage-race in the country, now in its 35th year. Each June, athletes, joined by their families and friends, converge on Central Oregon to take part in the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival. The Pacific Crest is known as the jewel of multisport events in the Northwest and a destination race for athletes from around the world. The Pacific Crest

Local Knowledge Sarah Max multisport champion Sarah Max bid adieu to New york City and settled in Central Oregon in 2002, knowing little more about the area other than that she could ride her bike and ski in the same day. She was sold. Her career as a financial writer allows her to keep one foot in New york, but most people here know her as the three-time winner of the u.S. Bank Pole Pedal Paddle, a timehonored race from Mt. Bachelor to Bend which has participants ski, bike, run, kayak and sprint to the finish.

champions emerge on the fourth day at the award-winning Crosswater Club Course. No matter what time of year and what recreation precedes it, the region’s brewpubs are always alive with activity. Brewing craft beer and the publican lifestyle have become a Central Oregon hallmark. Many of the region’s pubs have integrated their indoor space with expansive outdoor dining while offering excellent food, live music and, of course, tasty ales, lagers and stouts. Cheers! To take it all in—brewpubs to golf, hiking, fishing or floating—can be daunting. Leave the logistics (and driving) to gETIT Shuttle and The Bend Trolley. Both of these transportation boutiques offer tours built around recreation and libations.

When friends visit we usually start the day with a gallon of coffee and then cycle the quiet roads around Tumalo, or go mountain biking on forested trails. For friends who don’t share my enthusiasm for riding uphill, a Cog Wild Bicycle Tours shuttle lets us save energy for afternoon boutique hopping or hops tasting at a favorite brewery. My favorite thing about Central Oregon is that while it’s true that we love our craft beer and wear a lot of spandex, there’s a lot more to this place than meets the eye. Most people here have a pretty broad world view and have accomplished some amazing things artistically, professionally and philanthropically.

Scenic Bikeways

Oregon’s official scenic bikeways are the first of their kind in the U.S., and Central Oregon is home to five of 11 Oregon routes. AN ABSOLuTe summer must for road cyclists is riding the best of the best – our scenic bikeways. Every rider can find a ride to suit their style and mood, from family friendly to adventurous.

Twin Bridges This 36-mile ride begins in Bend’s downtown Drake Park and follows an engaging, moderately hilly course past the city limits into farm and ranch country, rolling through rimrock canyons with views of snowcapped peaks. Cross the Deschutes River at Twin Bridges Road, and stop in the quaint town of Tumalo. Dip your feet in the cool, clear water, get lunch or sip a latte before powering home. With no extended climbs, it’s a great way to fill your lungs with mountain-fresh air and take in the sublime scenery. Sisters to Smith Rock This moderate 37-mile route weaves through Sisters Country to Smith Rock State Park's impressive rock walls. The Crooked River winds at the base of the volcanic, multicolored formations towering above the valley floor. Watch rock climbers from all over the world tackle thousands of ascent routes. The varied, rolling terrain is generally downhill from Sisters. It is a perfect point-to-point ride if you leave a support vehicle in the public parking areas at each end. MORE INFO For links to download detailed maps and even turn-by-turn cue sheets for these rides, go to: visitcentraloregon.com


Mckenzie Pass This challenging 37-mile route winds through deep forests, climbing to a volcanic lava-rock moonscape summit. This is likely the most interesting and beautiful scenery you'll ever get on a bike ride. Stop at the Dee Wright Observatory, built from lava rock, and take in spec-

tacular views of the Three Sisters mountains. A huge bonus: most of this ride is on Route 242 (on the u.S. Register of Historic Places), and it's open to bicycles in spring.

Metolius River Loops These loops vary from short, familyfriendly rides of about three miles, to a moderate, 24-mile ride if you connect several of the shorter loops. The loops begin and end at the 90-year-old Camp Sherman Store and Fly Shop. Travel along the wild and scenic waters of the Metolius River to the Wizard Falls fish hatchery where kids can feed the trout, kokanee and Atlantic salmon. Educational signs describe how the headwaters of the Metolius mark the marvelous beginning of the 28-mile river that flows through meadow and forest and careens through canyon walls before it empties into Lake Billy Chinook. Take in all hues of green in the spring and summer, or stunning reds, yellows and oranges throughout the fall. Madras Mountain Views This 30-mile loop through high desert and basalt palisades offers sweeping views of the Cascade Mountains and almost no traffic. Begin and end in small, friendly downtown Madras. Pedal to the stunning overlook above Cove Palisades State Park and Lake Billy Chinook to glimpse eagles and other raptors soaring. Wind through the little towns of Culver and Metolius, stopping for refreshments along lightly trafficked roads. This area's mild winters offer great year-round riding, with sun-drenched days extending throughout winter, spring and fall.


OH AND, BY THE WAY, DID WE MENTION OUR DAVID MCLAY KIDD GOLF COURSE? Living at Tetherow might turn you into a mountain biking, skiing, slip and sliding, brewery hopping, fine food eating, rock climbing Bendite. But don’t forget, right outside your door is a championship style, Scottish links golf course designed by one of the world’s most revered course architects.

What makes the Central Oregon golf experience truly special is not only the variety and value of 30 golf courses within a 45-minute drive of Bend and Sunriver, but the exceptional caliber and diversity of course design. From high-mountain to high desert golf, you won’t find any single track like the next in Central Oregon. With some of the most renowned names in course design, you can be sure of a “bucket list” golf experience in Central Oregon. For many good reasons, Golf Digest named Central Oregon in its “Top 50 Golf Destinations in the World.” Central Oregon courses aren’t short on scenery, with shots that challenge you to carry over deep canyons and the famed Deschutes River; bunkers carved from lava flows and filled with red sand; and fairways framing the majestic Cascade mountains. Just

Variety is the spice of life when it comes to golf in Central Oregon. From Scottish links-style, to towering Ponderosa-lined fairways, to pristinely manicured resort play… Central Oregon’s courses feature the finest course architects in the world. remember to call “FORE!” when the resident deer, rabbit or bald eagle ventures into the path of your shot. If your quest is to play a course designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, David McLay Kidd, and Peter Jacobsen then you’re in luck. This roster of all-star architects and many others, has chosen Central Oregon as the site for their most innovative course designs. It may surprise you to learn that with less annual rainfall than San Diego, Central Oregon and its sunny, dry and mild temperatures is absolutely ideal for golf. Summer day temperatures average in the low 80s, while spring and fall provide crisp mornings and warm evenings for golf lovers. Many Central Oregon courses are open year-round.

Local Knowledge David McLay Kidd Course architect David McLay kidd is at the peak of his profession. Golf World magazine called him the “hottest architect in golf," given the list of course masterpieces he’s designed around the world. Courses such as Laucala Island golf Club in Fiji, Bandon Dunes on the Oregon Coast, the TPC Stonebrae Course in Northern California and now, the design of the Castle Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. Then there’s his Bend creation, Tetherow, that is attracting players from across the u.S. and abroad. When friends come to visit, I love to take them to Tetherow and golf. As the course designer, my local knowledge is as good or better than our great caddies. If you want to beat me at Tetherow, you'd better bring your ‘A’ game. I also love to take friends out on my boat to Lake Billy Chinook. There, we can wakeboard, use towables, swim and picnic. What I like best about Central Oregon is that, as a Scotsman who spent years in London, there’s reliably good weather, and it lacks crowds.

EVER ! Start planning your new adventures now >> Sunriver Resort



Create your family's stories, now and for generations to come, at Sunriver.

The Start of Unforgettable One couple tells the story of how their family has found the perfect place. A place where they can connect with each other, the outdoors — even themselves.


hat first time we visited Sunriver, what struck me was the natural beauty surrounding us. The high desert sky, such an incredibly deep blue. And the pine forests – so dense and vast, they almost didn’t seem real. There we were, on the edge of a meadow with a sparkling river, at a resort with every recreational possibility at our doorstep for us and the kids. We did it all – biking, canoeing, tennis, golf, hiking, the pools, the spa, terrific restaurants. My husband and Sunriver Resort

the kids and I rode our resort rental bikes everywhere on all of the paved bike paths. It was so relaxing and fun. We biked to the stables and did a trail ride, and moved on to the Nature Center. It was such an experience to see a great horned owl close up, on the arm of one of the staff who was so friendly and knowledgeable. A few minutes away at the High Desert Museum, we got close up to live porcupines, a bobcat, otter, owls and eagles, and learned all about them. The kids loved meeting the people


“We get to do it all amid the beautiful mountains — biking, canoeing, tennis, swimming — and I even get some time to unwind.”

portraying the pioneers. I even got some alone time. At the Sage Springs Spa, the lavender and sage sugar-scrub treatment and hot-stone massage let me fully unwind.

We are hooked. Every time we go to Sunriver, we come home feeling rejuvenated. There is always something more to do, and every summer we return to explore more.”


Once you experience Sunriver, you'll make it your new family tradition too.

“The golf in Sunriver is unbelievable, and all of our fun family time has kept us coming back year after year.”


was initially attracted mostly by the golf—four world-class courses in a great setting, designed by some of the biggest names: Bob Cupp, John Fought, Robert Trent Jones Jr. Over the years that we’ve been coming here, I've played them all. Some of the best memories, though, are of golfing with the family at the 9-hole course, Caldera Links. Afterward, we’d head to the Owl’s Nest pub and sit out on the deck. I really enjoyed trying the local microbrews, looking out over the mountains, and we’d all be talking about the day as we ordered great steaks, salads and burgers. It was at times like those when I started

to realize how much this place meant to our family. We came back the following summer with all of the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. We rented a couple of vacation homes, and everyone loved it. There was something for everyone. My mom loved Sunriver’s Classical Concert Series, held in the Great Hall. It is a magnificent, historic building constructed with huge timbers during the 1940s as Camp Abbott, by the U.S. Army. At nearby Lava Lands, we

walked over a 7,000-year-old lava flow and to the top of the butte for a great view. Dad and I played golf at spectacular Crosswater, and then took the kids to a beautiful reservoir where we caught a few trout. We came back that fall to celebrate Thanksgiving, and to ski at Mt. Bachelor during the winter break, and that sealed the deal. We knew we wanted this place to be a part of our lives forever. I think I can say that buying

our vacation home at Sunriver was the best thing we’ve ever done. This is where we are creating our family history. Sunriver will be a part of it for generations to come. It’s unforgettable.”

Winter Adventure

Central Oregon is a winter sports and recreation paradise. Choose from thousands of acres of recreational possibilities in the Cascades. Cross-Country Skiing Like your trails groomed for skating and classic crosscountry skiing? Head to the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center, Hoodoo Ski Area or the Virginia Meissner Sno-Park. If, however, you prefer un-groomed skiing on marked trails, then try one of the region’s 14 Sno-Parks. If making your own path through the forest is the order of the day, almost any place that has snow in the Deschutes National Forest is there waiting to be tracked.

Backcountry Skiing Superb and among the most accessible in the country, backcountry skiing is just minutes north and northwest of the Mt. Bachelor Ski Area. A slightly longer haul is required to get into some virginal backcountry runs in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, the Three Sisters volcanic peaks from nearby Sisters and Pine Mountain east of Bend.

Snowmobiling Thanks to the efforts of regional snowmobiling clubs, there are literally hundreds of miles of groomed and well-marked trails to “sled” throughout Central Oregon. Popular take-off spots

AutoBahn Tubing Park at Hoodoo

include the snowmobile parking and shelter area at Wanoga Sno-Park on Century Drive near Bend, Edison Butte on the road between Mt. Bachelor and Sunriver, the Newberry National Volcanic Monument at La Pine and nearby Hoodoo Ski Area outside of Sisters. Another local favorite is to head from Dutchman Flat along Century Drive and out to Elk Lake Resort.

Snowshoeing Wherever there’s snow cover in Central Oregon, there’s an opportunity to snowshoe. Try marked snowshoe routes at Virginia Meissner and Swampy Lakes Sno-Parks off of Century Drive just outside of Bend. These are two main areas where snowshoers can find trails, warming huts and solace in the Deschutes National Forest.

Sledding The place to be for family sledding fun is Wanoga Sno-Park off Century Drive on the way to Mt. Bachelor. There’s ample parking and plenty of room to sled, toboggan or inner tube. Bring your own hot chocolate or buy it from the snack trailer in the parking lot. Head a little farther up to Mt. Bachelor's Snowblast tubing park and snag a day-pass for an afternoon

Central Oregon Adventures

known as one of the world’s premier tube riders, gerry Lopez is a pioneer and master of surfing the hollow curls of huge waves, particularly the notorious Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii, the state where he was born. He has appeared in numerous films and created his own surfboard company before moving with his family to Bend in 1992. gerry translated his talents into snowboarding, and in 2008 he wrote the book Surf Is Where You Find It. “We’re almost 200 miles from the ocean, but it never feels that far, because whenever I’m snowboarding on Mt. Bachelor, I’m surfing the mountain.” When friends visit I take them to Mt. Bachelor for riding or Nordic skiing. In fall or spring, I take them mountain biking on any one of the trails here, and they’re pretty excited, especially when I tell them you could do it forever and never ride the same trail twice. We might do a yoga class, and then go for a night on the town in the Old Mill District.

Dog Sledding


Regularly scheduled dog sled tours led by qualified guides depart and return to Mt. Bachelor ski area every day when the resort is open for business. Trail of Dreams, owned by an Iditarodcompeting family with their athletic dogs, take guests into parts of the forest many people never get to see. What an amazing way to experience the Central Oregon winter wonderland!

My favorite thing about Central Oregon is the space, in both a literal and figurative sense. The peace and solitude of a natural setting is not far from the hustle and bustle of downtown. This is a nice balance to have in life.

Central Oregon is home to Prineville, the unofficial “Rock Hound Capital of the united States,” where precious gemstones lie just beneath the land’s surface, waiting to be uncovered. Discover a piece of Oregon’s geologic past at one of many public recreational collection areas. get the Rockhound Map from the PrinevilleCrook County Chamber of Commerce (see directory, page 120) for a full-color guide to your adventure, with pictures of what you can find at each site, historic and geologic information, and lots of tips, such as gPS coordinates.

Cascade Perfection

All Around Mt. Bachelor

From the day it opened 55 years ago, Mt. Bachelor gained a well-deserved reputation for its deep powder, its long season and the incredible vistas north over the Three Sisters Wilderness, west over the High Cascade Lakes region, south towards Crater Lake and east over the high desert country. Mt. Bachelor quickly became known as a cruiser’s delight—a mountain where almost every acre of terrain could be skied by just about anyone. Over the intervening years, Mt. Bachelor added to its luster by becoming one of America’s first ski areas to welcome snowboarders, embrace telemark skiing, and install high-speed lifts. The resort was also in the forefront of the cross-country ski boom, adding a groomed trail system in the late 1970s. Today Mt. Bachelor is the model of a complete snowsports resort. It offers 360-degree lift-served groomed skiing and riding from its volcanic summit. Off the groomed, there is plenty of untouched gladed tree skiing over Bachelor's 3,683 acres.

w w w . v i s i t c e n t r a l o r e g o n . c o m

A friendly team of Mountain Ambassadors are available to make you feel welcome and safe on the mountain. If you seek big air and tricks, there are terrain parks for your playground. Good to know that at Mt. Bachelor, kids up to age 12 ski for free (and ride the terrain park) if one of the parents buys a multiday ticket. Kids younger than five ski for free all season. Close to the West Village Lodge is the liftserved Snowblast and Tubing Park where kids of all ages can slide down a groomed runway to their hearts' content and then get pulled back up. There are two base lodges that offer rentals and lessons, as well as first-rate food and beverage service. Up on the hill, Pine Marten Lodge offers a memorable ski-in-skiout respite during a day on the slopes. Directly across the main parking lot from the tubing park, terrain park and lifts is the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center with 56 kilometers of trails groomed for both skate skiing and classic skiing. From its classic log cabin structure, the Nordic Center offers lessons, rentals and a woodburning stove to cozy up to for a snack and a hot chocolate.

Night Skiing

Hip Hoodoo CENTRAL OREGON's ONLY night skiing destination, the Hoodoo Ski Area just west of Sisters lets you ski under the stars (and the lights) on Fridays and Saturdays. And every day, Hoodoo offers uncrowded, affordable, family-friendly charm along with three high-speed quad lifts, 32 runs and 806 skiable and rideable acres. With nearly all the runs ending at the main ski bowl near the lodge, it’s easy for families and friends to stay together, and the Mountain Cubs area is for ages 4 to 6. Beginners will love Hoodoo’s new “1-2-3 and Rent For Free” program that gives first-timers: three two-hour lessons, three lift tickets and three equipment rentals, followed by free equipment rentals for the rest of the year, all for $149. And everyone can appreciate the easy in-and-out terrain from Hoodoo's spacious, 60,000-square-foot lodge, close to the chair lifts. Even non-skiers can tap into gravityfueled excitement with downhill

snowbikes, essentially bikes on skis, and at the Autobahn Tubing Park. One of the largest cable tows in the country takes riders to the top of the hill for more than 800 feet of inner-tubing downhill fun. Another way to enjoy this terrain is on the 19 kilometers of groomed crosscountry ski trails. Hoodoo also offers the most ski-in, ski-out RV hookups in Oregon. With 32 RV spaces just a few steps from the lodge, it’s easy to order a Hoodoo Voodoo IPA and tailgate right from your RV or trailer. Bring plenty of firewood and a fire pit to cozy up around the flame at night to watch the snow fall. Or, stay at cozy accommodations or spacious cabins in the woods at nearby at Suttle Lake, Camp Sherman or Black Butte Ranch. Hot tip: Black Butte Ranch offers packages starting at $165 including two lift tickets or four tubing passes, two free movie tickets and a free pizza.

Nordic Skiing: The Hoodoo Nordic trails are groomed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On nonholiday Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hoodoo doesn't groom and skiing is free. The trails are generally closed on Wednesdays. ski shuttles: From Eugene, contact Berg's Ski Shop for schedule (800) 800-1953.

Winter Weekend

48 Hours of Winter Fun It’s a triple play when it comes to the perfect two-day winter stay in Central Oregon—starting and ending with three distinct experiences. Sisters Based out of Sisters, after a pleasant night’s stay at FivePine Lodge, head to one of the town’s renowned bakeries to start the day. If you're staying at Black Butte Ranch, brew up a cup and lay out some pastries in your vacation rental. After that, head to Hoodoo Ski Area to ski, ride or do a little innertubing down these Cascade slopes. After a morning full of downhill runs, head back to Sisters for a late lunch or refreshments at the Three Creeks Brewing Company. If you haven't been able to find time to see the latest movie, head next door to the Sisters Movie House, built inside a big red barn. If the slopes have gotten the best of you, there's always the Shibui Spa at FivePine Lodge, just a two-minute walk from the theater and brew pub. Day two is exploration day. It begins in

Sisters with a relaxed cross-country ski tour on the Peterson Ridge trail system, a hike around nearby Suttle Lake or an amble along the Metolius River and into Camp Sherman. Try lunch at The Lodge at Suttle Lake. Back in town, it’s time to troll the art galleries or hit the winter series of the Sisters Folk Festival, where you can find big acts in an intimate setting.

Bend If you're launching from Bend, and staying at DoubleTree, The Riverhouse Resort or the Hilton Garden Inn, try McKay Cottage or downtown's Alpenglow Café before heading up for a day of alpine skiing. Those wanting to be a bit closer to Mt. Bachelor will find a haven at Seventh Mountain Resort, five miles from downtown on the way to the ski area.

Come evening, Bend has dozens of wonderful dining options such as the venerable Pine Tavern near Mirror Pond in the heart of the city. After dinner, downtown has several music clubs, regular big-time music acts at the Tower Theatre, wine bars and places to simply sit back and relax after a long day on the mountain. Or, an alternative itinerary for Bend would be to start off the day heading up Century Drive for cross-country skiing at one of the designated Sno-Parks, sledding at Wanoga Sno-Park or dog sledding with Trail of Dreams at Mt. Bachelor. Back in town, explore the shopping downtown or in the Old Mill District.

Lodging Comfort

When it comes to your lodging accommodations in Central Oregon, you'll marvel at the choices, the quality and range of prices to fit your lifestyle and budget. Splurge on a high desert resort family getaway, take it up a notch in town or find something that's tucked away along the Deschutes River for a quiet retreat. In every case, the universe of lodging in Central Oregon is vast and creative. Downtown, Indie Style San Franciscans and aspiring filmmakers Sarah Johnson and Jerry McGrath try to see as many independently made films as possible. “Because BendFilm has gotten such great reviews in the indie film community and with film-goers in general, we had to come and see for ourselves," says Johnson. She and McGrath chose to stay at McMenamins Old St. Francis School close to the heart of BendFilm’s action. “McMenamins has such a great, funky vibe that fits neatly with the festival, and we could catch screenings there. It's just a five-minute walk to the Tower Theatre for other screenings,” McGrath offers. Just as important, the couple loved being near all the restaurants bars and nightlife in downtown Bend. “Big surprise," says Johnson, “this town has a lot of great places to hang out and eat.”

Fun for Cycling Fans Come fall, cyclocross racing becomes a big deal in Bend. National events, regional events and events such as the Halloween Cross Crusade are as much fun for spectators and photographers as they are for riders.


w w w . v i s i t c e n t r a l o r e g o n . c o m

“The best part of any fall cyclocross event in Bend is that you get a cycling double," notes Bill Everingham of Boise, Idaho, a competitor in the masters class of cyclocross. "You get to race on the cross course and then hit some of the best mountain bike riding on firm dirt and miles of singletrack when you’re not racing.” To position himself for the “double,” Everingham stays at the Seventh Mountain Resort. “From the Resort, it’s a short drive to the races and just a few minutes to be on singletrack trail in the Deschutes National Forest. I also love the get-awayfrom-it-all feel to the place.”

Eco Retreat Seeing a badge with a name and Sisters as the wearer’s hometown at her college reunion in Connecticut, Alison Vickers remarked, “Oh, that’s the home of the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, something on my list of dream to-dos.” In 2012, Vickers was finally able to get to Sisters. “It was extraordinary with all the quilts hung up around town, the workshops and lectures, the whole atmosphere around the event,” she says.

House on the Metolius

Vickers and her husband, Thomas, stayed at the FivePine Lodge. “We could walk to the heart of Sisters and all the activities in minutes, yet felt like we were out in the wilds at FivePine. Having the Three Creeks Brewery and the Sisters Movie House a short walk away was wonderful. After way too much time on my feet, the Shibui Spa at FivePine was a blessing.”

typical slope-side offerings.” Mt. Bachelor achieved goal one, and Mount Bachelor Village Resort met goal two. “The best thing about Bachelor is the variety of terrain,” says Merrell. “As for Mount Bachelor Village Resort, having a spacious condo unit where we could cook meals, watch movies, swim, hot tub and relax proved to be ideal and just a short drive to the slopes.”

Fishing the Deschutes

Yoga Retreat

The Carlsens of Southern California like to vacation where he gets to fly-fish while she gets to soak, spa and swim. “We solved both needs when we decided to try Kah-Nee-Ta Resort at Warm Springs,” offers Larry Carlsen. “She enjoys the Wanapine Spa, the thermal pools and a day of relaxing, while I fish to my heart’s content.” World-famous waters here hold redside trout on seldomfished sections of the nearby Deschutes River and the Warm Springs River. “What works so well for us, is that the resort has everything we need," he says. "We both unwind, eat well, sleep well and go home happy.”

Skiing the Cascades “There were two things that helped us decide to make Central Oregon the destination of our annual family winter snowsports trip,” says Kay Merrell of Sacramento, California. “First we wanted a ski resort where my husband and I could ski while the kids could work on their trick skills in the pipe. Secondly, we wanted to stay in a place that was close and had more than

“It was the serenity of the natural setting—the big vistas, the silence, the glowing sunsets over the Cascade Range in the distance, the wildlife that drew me here,” says Heather Dixon after a yoga retreat at Brasada Ranch. “The atmosphere enhanced the two-a-day sessions,” says Dixon, a television script writer in Los Angeles. “Plus the ranch’s spa and restaurants are exceptional.” Brasada has found well deserved recognition for its golf and horseback riding. As more people have stayed at the ranch, however, the more it has emerged as a peaceful retreat. “I first came to Brasada as part of a team looking for a quiet place to put the finishing touches on a movie script,” offers Dixon. “Now I come back for yoga and a week of total relaxation and health.”

Reunion for Everyone When it came time to choose a location for a family reunion, Robyn Luchs selected Sunriver. “I picked Sunriver because it has the space needed to accommodate the 21 family members coming from New Jersey, South Carolina, Indiana and California. A key element in my decision was the range of activities

for both the adults and children, and the variety of luxury accommodations to please our diverse family. We rafted, went to the High Desert Museum, played golf, rode horses, bicycled, fished and, of course, went to the waterpark. We even took a trip down to Crater Lake National Park one day. Of all our family reunions, this was the easiest. The ease of getting everyone to Sunriver, the resort’s fine restaurants, its grocery stores, the glorious weather. We hope to do it again, and all the kids are already planning activities for next year’s reunion.”

Fun Family Vacation For Seattleite John Kenyon Ellis vacationing at Black Butte Ranch is like coming home. After all, for 30 years his parents owned a home there. That's where they spent every summer, and most Christmases as well. “It was paradise then and still is,” Ellis says, “I now bring my own young family down to experience what makes Black Butte Ranch so wonderful.” Part of that experience is golf, which he played with his father and brother for many years on both the Glaze and Big Meadow courses. Apart from golf, the Ellis children got in lots of pool time, biked around the seemingly endless trails and made regular visits to Paulina Springs via the boardwalk pathways. There were family hikes around the property, to the top of Black Butte, to the headwaters of the Metolius River, dinners

at the Lodge, trips to Sisters that included shopping and gallery visits, great coffee and the annual pilgrimage to Jen's Garden, a world-class restaurant. “There’s something in the air here that makes me slow down and enjoy every minute of the day. It’s special.” Ellis says that the formula for a great time at Black Butte is the same as it always was: “Early golf, lunch, nap, swim, dinner, family games, cool air for a good night's sleep.”

Wed, Play and Stay ... In Luxury With more than 300 sunny days a year, moderate temperatures, and fresh, country air, this region is a perfect wedding destination. The rugged, Western atmosphere plus the modern amenities of the region's luxury resorts offer a great combination. “Central Oregon is a remarkable place to get married,” says Kacie Stott of Stott Shots Photography in Bend. “It's very easy to accommodate weddings any time of the year.” Arrive a few days before the big day and soak up the fun of the outdoors – and the luxurious spa treatments – before getting hitched with the Cascade mountains as a backdrop. Resort concierges will help organize all of the activities, from brewery and distillery tours to golf outings at award-winning golf courses. At night, gather with your group around a cozy bonfire, and make s'mores while everyone tells stories about the day's adventures and toasts the bride and groom.

If it’s seafood you’re after, there’s Anthony’s Home Port in Bend’s Old Mill District with freshly caught fish flown in daily. “Surf’n’turf” at Brickhouse, downtown, in both Bend and Redmond.

A bit farther afield, there are some hidden gems such as The Boat House Restaurant at Suttle Lake. Golf clubs with exceptional dinner menus include Tetherow Grill and Broken Top Club.

Local Knowledge Bette Fraser chef and founder,


Chef Bette Fraser had been cooking professionally in Southern California for years but fell in love with Central Oregon when she and her husband visited on a


ski trip. They moved here in 2004, and

Goody's Candy Store

the region's vibrant culinary community, from sustainable farms and ranches to microbreweries, artisan cheese makers, wine makers and distillers inspired Bette to create The Well Traveled Fork, which showcases it all through tours, cooking classes, catering and personal chef services. When friends visit I always take them to farms and ranches in Terrebonne,

including the alpaca ranch. Most people have never seen an alpaca and when they do, they are just mesmerized by these peaceful creatures with their luxurious coats that come right up to you. We go beer tasting at Crux Fermentation Project and Deschutes Brewery, and sample local handcrafted wine and spirits. For dinner, I love to light my wood-fired oven to make rustic pizzas.

of top television foodie programs. Aspiring chefs learn every aspect of the culinary art in state-of-the-art kitchens including a demonstration theater. Wednesdays through Fridays, the institute’s students share their talents in threecourse lunches and dinners at the institute’s restaurant, Elevation. The menus feature fresh, local, sustainable ingredients in items such as handcrafted charcuterie, pan-roasted Chinook salmon with heirloom tomato and fennel sauce. Reservations are recommended at elevationbend.com.

Housed in Terrebonne’s 100-plus-year-old old former train station, Terrebonne Depot serves a wide range of New American cuisine surrounded by unmatched views of Smith Rock State Park. At The Oxford Hotel, take the elevator to the subterranean level for 10 Below, serving urban-chic organic dining that doesn’t compromise taste. For nouveau Mexican-Peruvian dishes such as ceviche of ahi in citrus yellow chile and red onions with Peruvian corn and sweet yams, head to Hola! in Bend and Sunriver.

Unique Eats

For a slice of pizza to go or stay, there’s plenty to choose from at the hipster quick-stop Pizza Mondo in downtown Bend. Also try Zeppa Bistro at Sunriver Resort. For savory glutenfree options, try 10 Barrel Brewing Company in Bend.

Find the culinary road less traveled with these one-of-a-kind restaurants. 5 Fusion & Sushi Bar is known for Japanese and korean flavors at lunch, dinner and happy hour with small plates such as beef sliders with kimchi

Libations & Nightlife

From internationally acclaimed craft beer and spirits, to hopping pubs and music clubs, Central Oregon is buzzing with fun, excitement and flavor. Gaze up at our sparkling mountain peaks and down at our gin-clear lakes and rivers, and you'll discover not just breathtaking scenery, but also a prime ingredient in our worldrenowned craft beers and distilled spirits: pristine water from pure, melted snow. Throw in first-rate wineries, eclectic pubs and music halls, and you'll never want for a fun-filled evening.

Beervana Bend has earned the moniker of “Beervana” because of its top-rate range of brew pubs. Why not get a reward for visiting them all by doing the Bend Ale Trail. Here's how it works: pick up maps and passports at one of our pubs, get them stamped at about a dozen Bend breweries, and receive a fun, flexible Silipint pint glass. It's made by a local company, designed for breakage-free revelry. Earn a surprise bonus if you visit a twelfth spot: Three Creeks Brewery in Sisters. Check out what's brewing in Sunriver on a brewery tour at Sunriver Brewing Company, where their tasty brews are now being made locally. There is a greater reward, too. Once you immerse yourself in the Bend beer scene and experience it firsthand, you will have set a higher bar for suds sipping. Make the journey easy and safe with shuttle services (GETIT Shuttle and The Bend Trolley) which also offer tours. Or pedal the Cycle Pub's multi-passenger bike or trolley with a guide to navigate pub-to-pub.

When it comes to spirits, Central Oregon's natural beauty and culture plays a role in the process of pleasing the palate. Visit Bendistillery, located on 24 bucolic acres in Bend. Linger in the tasting room over a glass of their Crater Lake Vodka, and consider how their filtering process mimics melting snow percolating through the porous volcanic terrain. At Oregon Spirit Distillers, savor the C.W. Irwin Straight Bourbon, touted as “a perfect blend of old West and new frontier” or Wild Card Absinthe, with a smooth anise flavor complemented with complex botanicals. If wine is your libation, tasting rooms abound. Just one example is Maragas Winery, which crafts its wines using a centuriesold family tradition of extensive barrel aging and minimal intervention in fostering the evolution of grape to finished wine.

Nightlife For late-night socializing in Central Oregon, head to Bend, where the streets are alive with a fun scene at bars, pubs and live music at a range of venues. For a hip lounge scene with swanky cocktails, try Level 2 in the Old Mill District. For discovering the Northwest's rich reserve of musical artists, look to McMenamins Old St. Francis School, where you can take in the shows indoors, and relax outside around a roaring fire. Don't miss their mosaic-tiled, indoor soaking pool with an open view to the starry sky, or get cozy on a sofa in the intimate movie theater on this whimsical, small campus.

High Desert Heritage

Connecting with Culture

An array of museums, public art and music venues bring together the past and the emerging future of Central Oregon's cultural scene. Over the past two decades, Central Oregon’s communities have embraced the arts and made them an integral part of local life as well as an attraction for visitors. A walk through downtown Bend and the Old Mill District during one of the first Fridays of the month says it all. Paintings, sculptures and photography are on display in galleries, retail shops, offices and on sidewalks. Throngs of people turn out no matter what the weather brings. Musicians on the streets and in the shops enhance the festive atmosphere. Art in the High Desert, a juried outdoor art show in August, is also a great local place to see world-class art. Beyond Bend’s First Friday Art Walks, summer and fall street festivals in the region feature fantastic works of art. Notably, the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show has become an internationally famous event, attracting quilt makers from around the globe to show off their works outdoors throughout the town. The quilt show also includes seminars and workshops for quilters. On permanent display in the art scene, The Museum at Warm Springs in the town of the same name features

one of the finest collections of Native American art and artifacts in the West. Handcrafted tribal treasures here include Patlapa, basket hats worn for ceremonies such as root, salmon and huckleberry feasts, and Sahaptin, painted rawhide cases which the Columbia Plateau people used throughout history for storage, packing and trading. Make this part of any of your Central Oregon cultural itineraries. Focusing on the flora, fauna and pioneer history of Central Oregon, the High Desert Museum south of Bend combines indoor dioramas, outdoor displays featuring birds of prey and live demonstrations of everyday pioneer life. A must-stop for families, the museum is also noted for presenting the best in contemporary landscape painting and photography. Moving from art to music, Central Oregon runs the gamut. For big-concert lovers, the Les Schwab Amphitheater along the Deschutes River in Bend presents national and international acts. The Athletic Club of Bend also showcases top-name acts for its summer series of evening outdoor concerts. Redmond hosts a summer concert series as well, featuring

Whether you are zipping through on the scenic highway or crawling along, it allows the imagination to really flow.

My favorite thing about Central Oregon is that you can be in the City of Bend, and within 20 minutes, even on foot,

well-established and up-and-coming regional musicians. A quick check of the local media when in Central Oregon reveals a lively music scene at local clubs year-round. Folk music is alive not only at local clubs but at outdoor events such as the regular Pickin’ and Paddlin’ concerts on the lawn at Tumalo Creek kayak and Canoe in Bend's Old Mill District. The center stage of folk music in Central Oregon is the annual Sisters Folk Festival, which deftly combines big-name acts with neophytes to the scene. Held September 5-7, the event features a number of indoor and outdoor venues throughout Sisters. Classical music lovers should plan to visit in August during the Sunriver Music Festival August 8-20. The venue

is Sunriver Resort's dramatic, historic, giant-log-beamed great Hall, which hosts eight concerts from classical pops to piano. While in Sunriver, take an educational jaunt to the Oregon Observatory and Sunriver Nature Center for constellations and owls. Jazz fans can enjoy the Jazz at The Oxford series that runs fall through spring at the Oxford Hotel in Bend. And there’s the regular Jazz at Joe’s series that takes place at Bend’s Community Theater of the Cascades (CTC). When not hosting music events, CTC offers a full schedule of dramas, comedies and musicals. So, too, with Bend’s 2nd Street Theater.

Just download the new Bend Heritage Walk app at www.deschuteshistory.org, and discover the colorful past of this frontier boomtown through its oldest buildings. And as the region’s creative community expands and evolves, so too does its farmers’ markets. Bend hosts three distinct markets from May until October—one in the heart of downtown, one on the grounds of St. Charles Medical Center and a third in Bend’s NorthWest Crossing neighborhood. Redmond holds a regular Thursday evening farmers market. All of these markets, taken together, promote Central Oregon’s farm-to-table culture and is the perfect place to stock up for a picnic. While on an agricultural theme, try Maragas Winery’s old-fashioned annual grape crush in September. Purple hands are the signs of a true vintner. Chef Bette Fraser also offers culinary tours and classes through her Well Traveled Fork enterprise. With its diversity of theaters, museums, art galleries and concert venues, Central Oregon is the place for a diverse cultural scene with a spectacular backdrop.

Relax & Retreat

Brasada Ranch

From day spas to full resorts that cater to your well being, your options for a healthy retreat are many. Massage, facials, and hand and foot therapy. While Central Oregon has become an outdoor recreation mecca, so too it is known for its relaxation oases. The region is now central to a bevy of spas that specialize in pampering—many of these in spectacular natural surroundings. Located east of Bend near Powell Butte, the Brasada Ranch Spa offers a wide range of services in a tranquil setting with superb views towards the snow-capped Cascade Range. Spa guests are privy to a hot tub and pool before and after their treatments—all in the setting of the high desert. The seaweed body wrap or lemongrass mimosa body scrub are two intoxicating indulgences to schedule. With a similarly inspiring setting, the Sage Springs Club and Spa at Sunriver sets the standard for a relaxing spa experience at the otherwise bustling resort. After a day on the slopes of Mt. Bachelor or on one of the area's golf courses, settle into a High Desert Nirvana package of massage and facial or the trifecta of the Three Sisters Renewal—a massage, facial and pedicure.

Relax high desert style

Between Bend and Redmond, the Spa at Eagle Crest is yet again another spa in a tranquil rural setting. Clear out your day for Eagle Crest’s Day at the Spa package with the works—from massaged head to pedicured toes. If you are in the mood for high desert culture and repose, head to Spa Wanapine at Kah-Nee-Ta Resort & Spa in Warm Springs, where natural elements of the earth are combined with ancient tradition. The area’s natural, 140-degree hot springs are a key element in the offerings. The water is cooled and filtered to revive the body, renew the mind, and replenish the soul. After a full-body massage, invigorate your skin with a sea salt rub and unwind with a mineral soak. Back in Bend, there are several exquisite spas to choose from including Jinsei Spa and Anjou Spa. As its names connotes, Jinsei has Far Eastern touches. Anjou takes pride in being a “green” spa. Jinsei Spa brings a worldly menu of massages to Bend that stretch from Indonesian massage, to Indian head massage, traditional Thai massage, and Yin-Yang couples massage alongside a fireplace and a glass of pear sake.

Local Knowledge Zoe Willitts

Founder of Shibui Spa and FivePine Lodge and Conference Center

Zoe Willitts moved to Central Oregon from Marin County, California, 20 years ago with her husband, Bill, and the two youngest of their five children. A licensed massage therapist, Zoe began a small business in a garage on their 15 acres in Sisters with the intention of creating a health retreat resort. In 2005, Bill and Zoe, who also holds credentials in Ayurvedic medicine and energy work, built Shibui Spa, with elements such as a 120-year-old Buddha from Beijing and a serene cascading water feature. A year later, they completed the dream by adding FivePine Lodge and Conference Center to the site. When friends are visiting, we enjoy the intricate bike paths of the Peterson Ridge Trail System, a vigorous hike up Black Butte and the view from the top, or a stroll around Three Creeks Lake and its surrounding area. It’s a

photographer’s paradise. Once people come here, they want to stay.

Jinsei Spa

My favorite thing about Central Oregon is the year-round recreational pursuits in the natural beauty of the Cascade Range, the quality of life for families, and the proximity to a metropolitan city.

Anjou Spa and Salon takes its “green” mission serious. All of its products are all-natural and organic. Its services such as organic facials and non-toxic nail polish for mani-pedis are just a couple of examples of its sustainability. In Sisters, Shibui at FivePine is a Japanese-influenced spa with a beautiful Buddhist approach to restorative relaxation. In this zen den in the forest a contemplative 120-year-old Buddha sits among

many tantalizing treatments. Think of your time here as a spiritual retreat enhanced by special therapies such as the Ayurvedic Lotus Dream (a hot oil rhythmic massage), Shirodhara (warm oil poured over the forehead for healing) and Crystal therapy (deploying crystals to release energy).

Per capita, the region boasts an unusually high ratio of private studios and public venues to the number of participants. Offering yoga along with a diverse selection of fitness classes and indoor fitness apparatus are Bend Athletic Club, Juniper Swim and Fitness Center (Bend), the Sisters Athletic Club, Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreation Center (SHARC) and Maverick's at Sunriver. For a complete yoga immersion, try retreating to destination resorts FivePine Lodge in Sisters or Brasada Ranch outside of Bend. Both resorts offer comprehensive packages in tranquil and bucolic settings. With many public and private pools in the area, swimming is making a big splash in Central Oregon. Bring your suits, goggles and towels, and dive in on the

lap and recreational swimming sessions. Of note is the Juniper Swim and Fitness Center with its 50-meter outdoor pool (domed in winter for four-season use) and its indoor 25-meter pool. The outdoor pool and kids water recreational park are new additions that are summer favorites. Kah-Nee-Ta Resort boasts a 184-foot slide into its hot springs mineral pool that is twice the size of an Olympic pool and is cooled in the summer and heated in the fall.

Sunriver's new aquatic and recreation center, SHARC, is a village of water. It has indoor and outdoor pools, water slides, a lazy river, hot tubs and plenty of space for kids to splash and play. If surfing is in your past, present or future, try Mavericks indoor wave rider. You'll emerge either soaking wet or as dry as local surfing legend Gerry Lopez riding a curl.

The Perfect Setting for Your



Californian Chelsea Harding knew exactly what she wanted when it came to planning her wedding. “Location was everything," she says. "My future husband and I wanted a rural setting hopefully with a mountain backdrop. Wherever we held the wedding, the location had to be not only spectacular but also easy for all our relatives and friends to come to from across the country.” After an exploratory trip to Central Oregon, Harding found herself in a quandary. “I came looking for a ranch or farm and found all sorts of other spectacular possibilities from destination resorts, to wooded and mountainous places that unexpectedly made my final decision very difficult.” Finding the perfect place for a wedding party’s needs can be challenging in Central Oregon because of the many gorgeous settings—the embarrassment of riches. Looking back on her wedding at Black Butte Ranch with full views of Mt. Washington and the Three Sisters, Californian Chelsea Harding says wistfully, “it was so perfect. Our guests loved the resort and the setting. It certainly made saying ‘I do’ so memorable.”

Convenience Bend native Janet Breyer moved to Denver after college to start her career in telecommunications. There she met her husband-to-be, and once engaged, began planning a June wedding in Bend.

“I settled on the back garden at McMenamins Old St. Francis School because several of my family and local relatives had attended the former school which had been turned into a brewpub and hotel," notes Breyer. "it was so easy to house people traveling to the wedding in the hotel and cottages. It's location in downtown Bend made it easy for our guests to explore Bend.”

There are myriad reasons to move to Central Oregon but for simplicity’s sake, let’s narrow it down to an easy eight. Perfect Location First is the region’s location midway between the Cascade Range to the west and the vast expanse of the high desert to the east. This setting offers the best of both mountain and desert landscapes and all their recreational opportunities. Quality of Life Second is the pace of life. Things move a bit more slowly here. Stress is minimal, with short commutes by car or bike. There’s clean air and water, and people take time to get to know their neighbors. Outdoor Paradise Recreation ranks within the top three. Within minutes from your home in Central Oregon, you can snowshoe, and cross-country, alpine or backcountry ski in the mountains. At lower elevations in the mild high desert winter, you can ride a bike or even golf. Come spring, summer and fall, there’s rafting, stand-up paddling, recreational kayaking, golf, spin and fly-fishing, mountain biking and road cycling, trail running and hiking just minutes away.

Parks Galore The area’s parks come in fourth. They are world-class yet not overrun. Regional parks offer anyone a respite from a hectic day and a safe place to play with kids.

Fun Facts

The landscape was formed by volcanoes and the history shaped by intrepid pioneers. Today, Central Oregon is one of the most enviable places in the world in which to live. Here are a few compelling facts about this place we call home.

Mt. Bachelor is an inactive volcano that last erupted about 10,000 years ago. Today, it is considered the Northwest's top ski area, with 88 groomed runs and 3,683 skiable acres of terrain served by 10 lifts. Even non-skiers can ride to the 9,065-foot peak and see for hundreds of miles—to Mt. Adams in Washington and Mt. Shasta in California. Just west of Mt. Bachelor, the volcanic peaks of South Sister and Broken Top beckon. They are among Central Oregon’s most-climbed peaks. Between 1964 and 1966, astronauts trained on volcanic terrain in this area to prepare for trips to the moon. Astronaut Jim Irwin of the Apollo 15 mission placed a volcanic rock from this area on the moon. A mixed route of horse trails and wagon roads blazed by explorers in the 1800s, including the legendary John Fremont and Kit Carson, is now the Cascade Lakes Highway. Scenic America named this road, which winds alongside volcanic peaks and stunning lakes, one of America's most important byways.

Fun Facts


Featured in movies such as Rooster Cogburn, with John Wayne and Katharine Hepburn, and Homeward Bound with Michael J. Fox and Sally Field, Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and the Three Sisters have had several cameo appearances in Hollywood films. Amelia Earhart, the first aviatrix to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, had ties to Central Oregon. In 1931, she married her publicist, George Palmer Putnam, of Putnam & Sons Publishing. Putnam had previously lived in Bend, where he served as mayor and was editor and publisher of The Bend Bulletin. Bend's Old Mill District is on the site of the former BrooksScanlon and Shevlin-Hixon lumber mills, the world's largest yellow pine producers in the early 1900s. Today it is a popular shopping and recreation site. Wall Street in Bend was named for a lava rock wall that lined the street, and was considered more respectable than Bond Street, with its gambling houses, bars and houses of ill-repute. In the early 20th century, downtown Bend was full of freighters, buckaroos, sheep herders and timber cruisers. Today these streets are lively shopping, dining and entertainment areas. Prineville was one of the first local towns to form a baseball team, in 1890. In 1911, Bend and Redmond formed the Bend Reds, then came the Loggers in the 1950s, and the Eagles in 1928. The Bend Rainbows had actor Kurt Russell on the minor league team in 1971. The Central Oregon Phillies, the Bend Bucks, the Bend Rockies and the semi-pro Bend Bandits followed. Today we have the amateur Bend Elks (Jacoby Ellsbury of the Boston Red Sox is a 2002 alumnus), and they serve up good old-fashioned fun: fierce competition, wooden bats, hot dogs and beer.

different perspective on the high desert. My favorite thing about Central Oregon is the distinct seasons. The winter is cold and snowy, the spring melts the snow, trees start sprouting as warm winds come in, the summer sun's heat is offset by low humidity, and fall has beautiful colors, sunsets and a crisp breeze. Another secret favorite of mine is the smell of the juniper trees.
