What’s New

BEND PARK & RECREATION DISTRICT

[ NEW & NEXT IN CENTRAL OREGON ]

Exploring the new Whitewater Park in Bend. LEFT: Deschutes Brewery.

A New Year for Fun

The outdoor playground of America has more new ways to play. Heads up adventurers, foodies, resortgoers and beer connoisseurs: Central Oregon has even more to lure you in 2016. To wit: a new whitewater and kayak park, new restaurants with worldclass chefs, more trending food carts, a new skating rink in the heart of Bend, unbeatable scenery and, of course, more new things brewing here in beervana. 6

V I S I T C E N T R A L O R E G O N . C O M

FUN AND ADVENTURE

Bend Whitewater Park and Skating Rink Fun in and around the Deschutes River and Old Mill District just got even better. We invested $9.7 million in creating a way for floaters, kayakers—and fish—to enjoy a longer stretch of the river with options for mellow or amped-up play. A prime section of the river now has three channels—one for people to standup paddleboard or float all manner of inflatables and pass under a small bridge, another for whitewater kayakers, and a third exclusively for wildlife. Want your whitewater gnarly, easy or something in-between? Take your pick. Four waves offer the full range. Head to Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe just upstream for rentals and instruction. In winter, The Pavilion, the new ice skating rink close to the river in the heart of Bend is the place to glide, twirl and curl together. Fun on this ice is sure to warm hearts.

RELAX

DRINK

Sunriver Resort has taken its diverse dining scene to a new level, launching two new restaurants. Carson’s American Kitchen embraces the flavors and the fresh bounty of the Pacific Northwest, with an extensive seasonal menu created by Executive Chef Travis Taylor and served alongside one of the West’s most stunning views. Twisted River Tavern offers a twist on classic bar favorites, serving new-fashioned concoctions crafted with locally distilled spirits. Add shareable bites, beer, wine, hip décor, live music and let the night begin.

Black Butte’s New Lakeside Wonders The already revered Black Butte Ranch underwent an impressive upgrade with $11.5 million worth of pleasing new amenities at its lodge. The resort now has a fabulous and sleek new lakeside pool and sauna, a bistro offering indoor, outdoor and poolside service, an activity center with endless options for keeping kids entertained and a fitness center to keep you healthy and in shape. All of this with jaw-dropping views of the Cascade Mountains, too.

Craft Breweries Bend has been lauded as the craft brew capital of Oregon, with the most breweries per capita in the state. With two new breweries joining the region’s “beervana” scene, such as Craft Kitchen & Brewery, the count has reached 24 in Bend and more in Sunriver, Prineville and Redmond. Experience the best of the beer scene with the Bend Tour Company or Cycle Pub, touring breweries and sipping your way through town. If you’re a lover of beer and the craft of brewing, Central Oregon will not disappoint.

Mountain Lifestyle

Green Lakes Trail

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 not only remains a hospitable place, it has become the setting of national-scale 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 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. Bend’s craft beer culture is exploding with 16 brewpubs. On any evening out, take in one of the town’s brewpubs and drink in Oregon’s burgeoning “beervana.” If you are feeling a little more formal, try one of the dozens of white-linen restaurants, or keep it casual 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.

Western Adventure

Take a small town with a slow pace of life and overlay an ever-expanding creative culture and a long-standing outdoor recreation tradition, and you have Sisters. In the shadow of the snowcapped Three Sisters Mountains, the town is a blend of art galleries, music (Sisters Folk Festival) and crafts (Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show). The outdoor recreational opportunities are enhanced with the Peterson Ridge Trail System that starts just blocks from the heart of downtown. There's hiking and backpacking in the Three Sisters Wilderness, fishing in Whychus Creek and golf at Aspen Lakes and Black Butte Ranch. Plus, two of Oregon's Scenic Bikeways originate from this quaint little town. Dining options include superb bakeries, a local brewpub and restaurants that appeal to everyone from gourmet foodies to the steak-and-potatoes lovers.

Sisters Folk Festival

Just north of Sisters lies 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 yearround mecca sought by fly-fishermen, hikers and mountain bikers, who have miles of stream to fish and trail to ride and hike. A prime spot to see is where the virginal Metolius River springs from its headwaters and also showcases one of the best views of Mt. Jefferson. The beloved Metolius will lull you to sleep when you stay along the banks in a cozy cabin or an elegant country retreat. The nearby Black Butte Ranch Resort bustles with activity, including two nationally ranked golf courses, Glaze Meadow and Big Meadow, and all types of family fun from horseback riding to swimming, hiking and mountain biking. Not far from Black Butte Ranch is Suttle Lake, offering an idyllic summer experience. The lake is a playground for sailors and anglers, and is circled by miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. The Suttle Lodge & Boathouse 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 near the ski resort is dotted with campgrounds and close to some of Oregon's most treasured hiking— the Pacific Crest Trail.

Newberry Crater CHRISTINA RENSCH

La Pine

Newberry Country

The Newberry Crater in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument is a mustsee for any budding geologist, especially this year, with events around its 25th anniversary as a national monument. The obsidian flows, vents, pumice cones, and hidden pockets of magma continue to fascinate geologists and adventurers. Here you can cross fields of obsidian and climb to the caldera rim. In winter, glide across the snow-covered terrain on cross-country skis or snowmobiles. When this shield volcano’s massive dome collapsed sometime between 2,000 and 500,000 years ago, what remained was the spectacular caldera we see today. From its top, you can witness the volcanic 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. East Lake and Paulina Lake have small natural hot springs on their banks for public use. The area will be a hotbed of family fun this year with re-dedication festivities planned in winter and summer for the 25th anniversary of its monument designation.

must see: The view from Paulina Peak (7,985 feet), showcasing thousands of acres of lakes, lava flows and spectacular geologic features.

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, offering true Americana and fun, with music, hay rides and everything rhubarb, from rhubarb beer and wine to salsa, jam and more.

Taking a refreshing and relaxing inner-tube float from Bend's Farewell Bend Park is our idea of a traffic jam and considered required river therapy. The best part of the float—apart from its highly social nature—is the convenience of a shuttle bus ride from the end point at Drake Park back to Farewell Bend Park so you can do it all over again. More fun awaits at Elk Lake Resort, your mountain getaway at the Cascade Lakes, where acres of open water reflect views of snowcapped peaks—a nirvana of kayaking, canoeing and standup paddleboarding (the new unofficial sport of Central Oregon). Paulina and East lakes in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument offer those options plus natural hot spring pools tucked away along the banks of the lakes. For houseboating, waterskiing and swimming, Lake Billy Chinook near Madras is a stunning setting.

My favorite thing about Central Oregon is that it’s such an amazing place for riding your bike, no matter your style. Prineville is at the crosshairs of hundreds of miles of trails. Within a three-hour drive in any direction from Prineville, you have access to any one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon. Whether you stay and play in Central Oregon or roam the state, you cannot go wrong. It’s all here.

fishing For fantastic angling, lakes such as Cultus and Davis deliver, along with 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 annual steelhead runs. The smaller Metolius River is known for being home to monster bull trout. Crane Prairie Reservoir, Davis Lake and East Lake are all noted for their trophy trout.

mountain biking & cycling More than 300 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails here have been featured on dozens of magazine covers worldwide. There's a trail for every ability, with mellow cruisers for beginners to technical trails for experts. Off the trails, Central Oregon is home to

four of the state's 14 scenic bikeways, bike-friendly routes highlighted by cultural and historical landmarks, gentle hills and amazing scenery.

our perfect adventure-filled Central Oregon weekend kicks off in the charming Old West town of Sisters, where authentic hospitality never goes out of style. You're greeted with a local craft beer or glass of wine during social hour at FivePine Lodge, and you begin to relax amid the towering pines on the patio beside the pool. Chat with some of your fellow guests also staying at the luxurious cabins. Once refreshed, keep the mood casual with dinner just a few steps away at Three Creeks Brewing Co. End the night with a first-run flick in the homey Sisters Movie House, part of the rustic yet upscale FivePine campus, or in a cozy vacation home rental from Sisters Vacation Rentals.

Day One starts early the next morning with a visit to Smith Rock State Park in Terrebonne to see the magnificent sheer rock walls and spires come alive with the first rays of the sun. After a hike along the Crooked River, which flows through the park, there's lunch on the deck at the nearby Terrebonne Depot or 7th Street Brew House in Redmond.

There's even time to get a SUP lesson from the folks at Tumalo Creek Kayak and Canoe, located right on the river. You could do dinner along the river at Red Robin or Anthony's, or try Crux Fermentation Project, another Bend brewpub that's become the “go-to” spot to catch the spectacular Central Oregon sunset over the Cascades with a pint of handcrafted ale.

Day Two is more outdoor fun and adventure, but in a completely different style. After a quick breakfast at FivePine Lodge in Sisters, head to Bend for a round of golf you'll remember forever—even if it's not necessarily for how well you played. The experience at Tetherow will stay with you for its Scottish links layout in Oregon's High Desert. Lunch is at The Row, Tetherow's pub, with local beers, a Northwest and Scottish-inspired menu and great views of the golf course and blue skies framing the landscape for miles. With a sun-drenched afternoon ahead, turn up the adrenaline while cooling down on a guided whitewater trip on the Deschutes River. Choose your level of adventure, from a scenic, three-mile Big Eddy Thriller by Sun Country Tours or a full-day excursion with Ouzel Outfitters. Dry off and head downtown for a wellearned reward, this time at Deschutes Brewery, Bend's oldest brewpub and the one that started the Central Oregon Brewvolution in 1988. For dinner, stroll a block away for modern American cuisine at 900 Wall, in the center of the quaint and historic downtown district filled with restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and shops, including Cascade Cottons, the perfect spot to pick up a couple of souvenir Bend, Oregon T-shirts. After dinner, no visit downtown is complete without a stop at the boutiques Hot Box Betty and Lost Season Supply. On the short, scenic drive back to Sisters, prepare to get cozy in your cabin with a fireplace and soaking tub for an evening of relaxation (and where you'll no doubt be dreaming of an extended return trip).

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.

3 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 spectacular 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 only to bicycles in early spring, when just enough snow has melted.

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.

t the start of Phil’s Trail, one of the most popular mountain biking routes in the extensive and renowned network of Bend singletrack heaven, the scene from the parking lot can be misleading. On any given summer morning, families, retirees, visitors with rental bikes, old-school pioneers of the sport and nationally ranked competitors alike will be rolling in. Once you are out on the trail, winding through the forest, however, you might not see another rider. That’s part of the beauty of Central Oregon mountain biking, with more than 300 miles of trails beneath a canopy of ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Cascade mountains. The lower elevation trails cover all the bases: relatively flat, fast and fun, with some tough technical sections and punchy climbs that cater to beginners and shredders alike. Head a little farther up, and you’ll ride in the shadows of snowcapped 10,000-foot peaks through high alpine meadows with

breathtaking vistas. Rustic shelters used as warming huts in the winter are perfect for summer biking rest stops where you can take a breather, have a snack from your pack and enjoy the blissful high mountain scenery. Phil’s Trail is by far the most popular riding area in the region. The trailhead is just a couple of minutes from town and from the parking area, riders can access a well-marked maze of diverse singletrack. If you want the thrills of going downhill but don’t want to do the hard pedaling up, check out the new lift-served downhill trails at Mt. Bachelor. Or, let the folks at Cog Wild Mountain Bike Tours and Shuttles in Bend take you up the Cascade Lakes Highway to trails like “Tiddlywinks” and “Funner.” An epic ride popular in late summer among visitors as well as locals begins with a shuttle that takes you and your bikes to Dutchman Flat, near Mt. Bachelor. After a short, slow climb, you’ll reap the reward of cruising downhill for about 20

Cog Wild will shuttle you from Bend to the McKenzie River Trail just west of Bend, which has been called America’s Number 1 Mountain Bike Trail. In Sisters, the Peterson Ridge Trail System is a local’s favorite and accessible right from town. Smith Rock State Park offers some of the most scenic trails in Central Oregon while the Maston area near Redmond is a favorite winter riding option. Prineville is growing as a mountain biking destination, too. The Round Mountain/Lookout Mountain loop offers 35 miles and nearly 6,000 feet of climbing.

A Great Golf Getaway

What makes a memorable golf trip? Playing three of the Top 100 courses in the nation? Playing a different course every day...for a month? Relaxing 19th holes? It’s all here–from the mountains to the High Desert–courses designed by some of the game’s greatest architects.

W

hen Tom O’Brien called the Central Oregon Visitors Association last year to get some help planning a golf getaway for himself and some buddies from Nebraska, he was on a mission to see what all the fuss was over Central Oregon golf. He’d seen the stories and photos in national golf publications and had heard of Sunriver and Black Butte Ranch, just two of the golf resorts in a region where 30 courses lie within 45 minutes of each other. His goal? “To have a memorable golfing experience. One where we go home thinking ‘I can’t wait to go back,’” O’Brien said. The Central Oregon golf experience is memorable indeed, whether you spend a week here with your buddies or are just passing through and have time for just one round. For O’Brien and his pals, the experience included setting up shop in the luxurious Tetherow Lodges and squeezing in six rounds in four days. The High Desert that is Central Oregon (the sunny side of the state) has quickly made a name for itself in golf vacation

circles. In fact, the region is home to three of Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Public Courses (Pronghorn No. 33, Crosswater No. 51 and Tetherow No. 54.) And Golf Magazine has called it one of the top 25 golf destinations in the world. The attraction? Central Oregon’s collection of courses offer a diversity not found anywhere else – courses designed by some of the game’s greatest architects. Tetherow, David McLay Kidd’s Scottish links masterpiece on Bend’s west side, has been getting rave reviews since it opened in 2008 and was named the nation’s Best New Course You Can Play by Golf Magazine. Set against a backdrop of Cascade mountain peaks, Tetherow would fit right in with Kidd’s more well-known courses along the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Tetherow’s knobs, knolls, fescue and tufts are as scenic as they are potentially penalizing to a scorecard. The lodges at Tetherow have turned the the resort into a true base camp for those looking to experience all the other adventures possible in the outdoor recreation capital of Oregon.

The trail stretches from Prineville to Sisters, Warm Springs to La Pine and features classics such as Bend Golf and Country Club (opened in 1925), the red cinder bunkers at Aspen Lakes, the railcar bridge at Lost Tracks and one of the toughest par 3s in Oregon at Widgi Creek.

Beyond our Top 100 courses, Aspen Lakes in Sisters has been named one of Golf Digest’s Top 15 Courses in Oregon while Black Butte Ranch’s Glaze Meadow Course has been redesigned to rave reviews. O’Brien and his group even threw in a round at Widgi Creek, a popular track within the Deschutes National Forest that locals voted Bend’s favorite golf course for 10 years in a row. Still, that’s just the beginning. The Central Oregon Golf Trail has more than two dozen courses including Redmond’s Juniper Golf Course, site of the Oregon Open, Quail Run Golf Course in La Pine and Meadow Lakes in Prineville, which is typically open year-round. Every golf course here has its own story, and there’s one for every level of player.

Golf Digest ranked Pronghorn’s Nicklaus Course second among America’s best new private courses in 2004. Four years ago, the course opened to public play. “Its back nine may be the most delightful Jack (Nicklaus) has ever designed, with gambling holes and gorgeous scenery at every turn.”

“Reportedly built in the meadow where John Wayne, as Rooster Cogburn, filmed his climactic charge, guns blazing, in the 1969 film, True Grit. The Bob Cupp design is far more subtle than a Wayne western, with lowprofile greens edged by graceful chipping areas and fairways intersected repeatedly by the Big and Little Deschutes rivers.”

“Far different than Bandon, with a manufactured landscape of lumps and bumps, far more bunkers, plus a couple of lakes, it nonetheless has the same fescue as at Bandon, so tee shots get plenty of roll and some approach shots can be bounced into flagsticks.”

cross-country skiing Like your trails groomed for skating and classic cross-country skiing? Head to the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center, Hoodoo Ski Area or the Virginia Meissner SnoPark. If, however, you prefer ungroomed skiing on marked trails, then try one of the region's 14 sno-parks. Or, make your own tracks through the abundant snow throughout the Deschutes National Forest. 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 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 Try marked snowshoe routes at Virginia Meissner and Swampy Lakes sno-parks off 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. Join a U.S. Forest Service naturalist at Mt. Bachelor on a free tour to learn about winter ecology and the area’s wildlife and plants.

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

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.

Powder Perfection

On Top of the World: Mt. Bachelor

F

rom the day it opened more than 55 years ago, Mt. Bachelor gained a well deserved reputation for its deep powder, long season and incredible vistas. On clear days you can see for miles north over the Three Sisters Wilderness, west over the High Cascade Lakes, south towards Crater Lake and east over the High Desert. From the summit, it feels as if you are on top of the world. Over the 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 snow-sports resort with 360-degree lift-served groomed skiing and riding from its volcanic summit. Off the groomers, there is plenty of untouched gladed tree skiing over Bachelor's 3,683 acres. It's a cruiser's delight–where nearly every acre of terrain can be skied by just about anyone. New to the mountain and not sure where to ride? A friendly team of Mountain

Ambassadors is there to make you feel welcome and safe on the mountain. (They might even show you a few of their secret powder stashes.) If you seek big air and tricks, the terrain parks are your playground. Good to know that with just a wee bit of planning, kids up to age 12 can ski and ride for free when a parent buys a multiday ticket four or more days in advance. Kids younger than five ski for free all season. Close to the West Village Lodge is the liftserved Snowblast Tubing Park where kids of all ages can zoom down a groomed runway. Two base lodges offer rentals and lessons, as well as first-rate food and beverages. Up on the hill, the Pine Marten Lodge offers a memorable ski-in-ski-out respite during your 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 groomed trails for both skate skiing and classic skiing. From its classic log cabin structure, the Nordic Center offers lessons, rentals and a wood-burning stove to cozy up to for a snack (maybe the region's best burritos) and hot chocolate.

Hoodoo You Love

C

entral 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. Hoodoo, open Thursdays through Mondays, 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 four to six. 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-squarefoot lodge, close to the chair lifts. Even non-skiers can tap into gravity-fueled

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 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, movie tickets and a $25 dining voucher.

Day Lodge: Hoodoo has one centrally located lodge with rentals, a ski shop, a restaurant and a bar. The Autobahn Tubing hill has its own warming hut with food service. Nordic Skiing: The Hoodoo Nordic trails are groomed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. On non-holiday Thursdays, Hoodoo doesn't groom and skiing is free. The trails are usually closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Ski shuttles: From Eugene, contact Berg's Ski Shop for schedule (800) 800-1953. Deals: 2-for-1 Military Mondays for armed forces veterans. 2-for-1 Thrifty Thursday lift tickets,$19; 2-for-1 Autobahn and night skiing coupons at local U.S. Cellular stores. See skihoodoo.com for the latest deals and special offers. Day-care Center: Hoodoo Day Care can accommodate five children ages 18 months to four years. $65 for a full day or $16/hour with two-hour minimum. Lunch is $6 extra.

Based out of Sisters, after a pleasant night’s stay at FivePine Lodge or in a cozy vacation home from Sisters Vacation Rentals, head to one of the town’s renowned bakeries to start the day. Or if you’re staying at Black Butte Ranch or Best Western Ponderosa Lodge, you may linger over breakfast or head to Cottonwood Cafe, serving traditional breakfasts and lunch favorites. Then head to Hoodoo Ski Area to ski, ride or do a little inner tubing 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 you didn’t hit the slopes, there’s always the Sisters Athletic Club and Shibui Spa at FivePine Lodge, 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 Black Butte Ranch. Back in town, stroll the art galleries or hit the winter series of the Sisters Folk Festival for big acts in an intimate setting.

If you’re launching from Bend, and staying at DoubleTree, The Riverhouse Hotel or the Hilton Garden Inn, try McKay Cottage, Sparrow Bakery or Rockin’ Daves Bagel Bistro before heading up for a day of skiing. Those wanting to be a bit closer to Mt. Bachelor will find a haven in the woods at Entrada Lodge, just a couple miles from downtown on the way to the ski area. Legs a bit weary and ready to head back from the slopes, stop by the The Row at Tetherow Resort for après ski (try the ghost pepper wings) or head right to town for a brew and a burger at either Deschutes Brewery or Cascade Lakes Brewing Co. Lodge. Come evening, Bend has dozens of wonderful dining options such as The Drake or 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 dogsledding with Oregon Trail of Dreams at Mt. Bachelor. Back in town, explore the shopping downtown or in the Old Mill District. The dinner fare runs from Kebaba Middle Eastern to 5 Fusion and Sushi Bar, to Pacific Northwest seafood at Anthony’s at the Old Mill. There are top-notch restaurants for every appetite here.

In winter, Sunriver is like being in a classic European alpine mountain community—small enough to walk everywhere yet replete with a central shopping and restaurant village. The drive to Mt. Bachelor from Sunriver is merely minutes. When your legs can’t take any more on the mountain, head back to Sunriver Resort, where the Sage Springs Club & Spa is the perfect medicine for weary muscles. Once rested, the Village at Sunriver features several diverse

dining options including Cafe Sintra, Marcello’s, Panini’s Pizzeria, Village Bar & Grill and Sunriver Brewing Company. Or head to the resort and relax in one of its new restaurants, Carson’s American Kitchen or the Twisted River Tavern. Day two in Sunriver starts with a venti latte and croissant from Starbucks in The Village before heading up to Edison Butte for a cross-country ski tour. Ending the tour with a picnic lunch on the snow, or head to the Sunriver Marina to enjoy Peruvian cuisine at Hola!, (open periodically in winter) a fitting finale to two wonderful Central Oregon days.

From urban-chic downtown digs to rustic luxury and private vacation home rentals, you'll find every style of comfort and convenience for your getaway. Discover why our region has been hailed nationally as the “Best Place to Reboot in the West.” Downtown, Indie Style

bend

When Kyla and Brandon Sauer visited Bend more than a dozen years ago, the words “upscale” and “boutique” weren't part of the lodging vocabulary. But after a recent stay in the urban-chic Oxford Hotel in the heart of downtown, the Seattle couple's impression of this formerly sleepy logging town was completely revamped. “It was upscale without the stuffiness,” Brandon recalled. “And the location was ideal. During our three days there, we walked everywhere.” They visited during the annual BendFilm Festival in October. The growing independent film event happens at theaters throughout Bend, from intimate downtown venues such as McMenamins Old St. Francis School to the historic Tower Theatre. “We had read a little about the festival and were really impressed by it,” Brandon recalled. “It had an upscale polish worthy of a big-city event but with a rare feeling of authenticity.” They plan to come back in summer and rent a charming little downtown bungalow from Bend Vacation Rentals. “With our own place we can experience Bend like locals and go hiking, biking, float the Deschutes River and walk to great craft brewpubs, restaurants, boutiques and outdoor concerts,” Kyla said.

Basecamp for Adventure

tetherow lodges

When Lisa and Ron Akin were looking for lodging in Central Oregon, they chose Tetherow, described online as “your basecamp for adventure.” “That's exactly what we were looking for–a place to set up shop for a few days, close to everything we knew Central Oregon had to offer,” Lisa said. The family of four from San Francisco had packed their vacation itinerary with whitewater rafting, mountain biking, hiking and other active pursuits. “At the new lodges, the mountain bike trails were literally right outside our door,” said Ron. “We could have ridden our bikes downtown for dinner, but we stopped at Cascade Lakes Brewing Co. because it was just so close.” Closer still was the Northwest cuisine at Tetherow Grill and casual fare at The Row. Each evening, they relaxed on their balcony overlooking the golf course and Bend. “The lodge was the perfect spot to come home to after each adventure-filled day.”

Lodge campus when they went to Three Creeks Brewery and the Sisters Movie House one night. They decided a luxury cabin at FivePine Lodge would be the way to go in 2015. “We could walk to the heart of Sisters and all the activities in minutes, yet feel like we were out in the wild at FivePine,” Maureen said. “The Shibui Spa at FivePine was delightful, too.” They are planning another trip with friends and family for hiking, fishing and taking in the acclaimed Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in July. For that, they may opt for a fully-equipped cabin or home from Sisters Vacation Rentals or Cascade Vacation Rentals. Lake Creek Lodge or Metolius River Lodges are other possibilities. “I'm really looking forward to having a great time with family and buddies and phenomenal fishing along the Metolius,” said Monty.

The Cultural Hub

kah-nee-ta resort and spa

Brian Palmer recalled planning a family vacation to the Kah-Nee-Ta Resort and Spa at Warm Springs that would be filled with fun, adventure and culture. Although it offers luxurious amenities and lodging, his son was immediately sold on the idea of staying in a giant canvas teepee, complete with a fire pit inside. “My wife, Sarah, wasn't sold on it at first, but when I told her about the spa, museum, thermal swimming pool–and that we'd also be staying in a luxurious lodge after just one night of 'roughing it,' she was definitely on board.” Throw in some opportunities for world-class fly-fishing on the Deschutes, a round of golf and horseback riding and Kah-Nee-Ta has everything for the memorable family getaway you've been dreaming about.

With the resort's award-winning golf course and a couple dozen more a short drive away, Brian McLaughlin knew the golf would be world-class. It was the luxury cabin and hot tub with stunning views, fine dining, evenings around the fire pit and pool time that let him and his buddies forget the missed three-footers. “This year's trip and the whole vibe was a complete experience,” he said.

Memory-Filled Reunion

Lisa Edwards was having a tough time planning her family reunion, until she discovered Sunriver Vacation Rentals. “The vacation home rentals had every amenity and could conveniently accommodate the 21 family members coming from all around the U.S. “I wanted to create great memories for everyone, and we did. We rafted, went to the High Desert Museum, played golf, rode horses, bicycled, fished, lounged at the pool and went to the waterpark. It was all easy, too–getting everyone to Sunriver, having the resort's terrific restaurants, its grocery stores, the glorious weather. The kids are already planning the fun for next year's reunion here.”

Rustic Getaway black butte ranch Black Butte Ranch is like coming home for John Kenyon Ellis of Seattle, who grew up coming here with his parents every summer, and most Christmases. “It was paradise then and still is,” John said. “Now I bring my own family along, and it's just wonderful.” There's golf on the Glaze Meadow and Big Meadow courses, the children get lots of pool time and bike seemingly endless trails. They uphold the family tradition of hikes to the top of Black Butte, along the scenic Metolius River, dinners at the lodge, visiting the shops and galleries in Sisters and having lunch at the intimate Cottonwood

The Best Setting for Your Wedding

Great Hall Sunriver Resort

finding the perfect destination

authentic style and convenience

Californian Chelsea Harding knew what she wanted for her wedding–spectacular scenery that would be easy to reach for family and friends across the country. She found it in Central Oregon, which offered destination resorts, boutique hotels, a vineyard and other venues offering endless views, impeccable service and accommodations to suit a diversity of guests. Looking back on her wedding at Black Butte Ranch with full views of Mt. Washington and the Three Sisters mountains, Chelsea said, “It was so perfect. It certainly made saying 'I do' so memorable.”

Janet Breyer of Denver wanted to get married in Bend, where she grew up. She chose the back garden at McMenamins Old St. Francis School. The historic downtown school was turned into a brewpub, hotel and cottages, where her guests stayed. “It was so intimate and romantic, plus it was easy for our guests to explore Bend,” she said.

wedded to outdoor fun Gabi Duarte of Portland wanted everyone at her autumn wedding weekend to join in the outdoor activities that she and her fiance love. That's why they chose Sunriver Resort. “The air is different there–clean and beautiful,” Gabi said. “We love to hike, standup paddle on the Deschutes and go biking. At the Oregon Observatory in Sunriver, we saw the moons of Jupiter for the first time, which was very special for us.” After all of the fun outdoors, the Great Hall, a historic structure made of huge timbers, the perfect setting for the celebration, she said.

unbridled luxury The national buzz about Central Oregon in major media from Travel + Leisure to The New York Times, gave Stephanie Callicott of Los Angeles the idea of having her wedding here. She selected a sunset ceremony at the new wedding island at Pronghorn, set on 640 acres surrounded by the stunning views of the Cascades. A stone-lined bridge connects to the 7,000-square-foot island in a lake on the world-class golf course, providing a dramatic entrance for the bride amid panoramic views. “Every detail was absolutely unparalleled, and the island was the pinnacle of luxury and privacy,” Stephanie said.

ith more than two dozen craft breweries around the area, Bend is officially a beer lover’s destination. Bend is a leader in the number of breweries per capita and the dizzying styles. This trend also inspired a vanguard of craft distillers creating smallbatch bourbon, gin and more spirits, and cideries fermenting Northwest fruit. With all these options, the only real question is where to start and when to stop. Here’s a guide to the musts. brewpubs There's no wrong way to do a tasting tour of Central Oregon's craft scene. While most bars and restaurants have local ales on tap, it's also great to go right to the source. Deschutes Brewery, Bend’s first craft brew pub, is a great place to start. The pub in the heart of downtown has expanded greatly since it opened in 1988 and tours are offered at its nearby brewery. Continue the experience at Bend’s Silver Moon Brewing, which brings an eclectic style to its signature and medalwinning brews such as Get Sum Pale Ale. Bend Brewing Co. is a locals’ favorite, with a patio for summer sipping and a cozy interior for quaffing malty seasonal ales. It’s just a short jaunt to another craft phenom, Crux Fermentation Project, with an indoor-outdoor dining area and a popular patio flanked by a large lawn, a perfect spot for families. Worthy Brewing, on Bend’s east side, is another favorite among locals. A beer garden outside lets you enjoy their artisan pizzas and beers next to crackling fires and twinkling lights.

Relax in Central Oregon

W

hile Central Oregon has become an outdoor recreation mecca, it is also known as a relaxation oasis. A bevy of spas specialize in pampering and many are in spectacular natural surroundings. The Sage Springs Club & Spa at Sunriver sets the

standard for a relaxing spa experience. 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. Treatments incorporate the area’s natural, healing beauty and the massages mimic the flowing motions of the river. Tone up at the club’s modern athletic facility with a lap pool and indoor tennis courts, too.

Relax High Desert Style

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. In Bend, several exquisite spas include Jinsei Spa, Anjou Spa and Spa W. Worn out from the retail therapy of downtown Bend boutique-hopping? Do “The Great Escape” package at Spa W, with a visit to the steam room, a salt glow treatment, 60-minute massage, pedicure and a delicious lunch. Need a full day of rejuvenation? The

Shibui Spa

Wrapsody offers a day of decadence that includes those indulgences plus the signature Desert Rescue facial. Jinsei Spa has Far Eastern touches and a worldly menu of Indonesian, Indian and Thai massage and Yin-Yang couples massage beside a fireplace along with a glass of pear sake. Anjou Spa and Salon takes its “green� mission seriously. All products are all-natural and organic. Organic facials and non-toxic nail polish for mani-pedis are a couple of examples of its sustainability practices.

In Sisters, Shibui at FivePine is a Japanese-influenced spa with a beautiful Buddhist approach to restorative relaxation. In this Zen den amid the pines, a contemplative 120-year-old Buddha is at the center of 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).

s much as Central Oregon is noted nationwide for its outdoor recreation and fitness options, the region also is known for indoor offerings from yoga to Pilates, weight training, cross-fit, water aerobics as well as senior-oriented weight training and aerobics.

The Athletic Club of Bend, Juniper Swim and Fitness Center in

Bend and the Sisters Athletic Club offer yoga along with a diverse selection of the latest styles of fitness classes and indoor fitness equipment. For a complete yoga immersion, try retreating to destination resorts FivePine Lodge in Sisters or Sunriver Resort outside of Bend. Both offer comprehensive packages in tranquil and bucolic settings.

The Juniper Swim and Fitness Center has a 50-meter outdoor pool (domed for year-round use) and a 25-meter indoor pool. The new outdoor pool with its water slide and water-play park are summer favorites. Kah-Nee-Ta Resort in Warm Springs boasts a 184-foot slide into a mineral pool twice the size of an Olympic pool. The water, which comes from the area's deep naturalmineral springs, is cooled in the summer and heated in the fall. In Sunriver, the aquatic and recreation center SHARC is a virtual village of water, with indoor and outdoor pools, water slides, a lazy river, hot tubs and plenty of space for kids to splash and play. The complex's amphitheater is also home to summer concerts and movies.

The Atlantic singled out the outstanding qualities of Central Oregon Community College and the Deschutes County library system. Hike the Cascades, rip down miles of mountain bike trails, fish the world-class Metolius, play golf, and climb at internationally famous Smith Rock.

While the region may be best known for its love affair with the outdoors or year-round recreational opportunities, there are a wealth of reasons to do business here, too. The new Cascades branch campus of Oregon State University in Bend offers four-year degrees, which complements the region’s imaginative and dedicated entrepreneurial spirit and skilled, well-educated workforce. Access to the rest of the country is available through the Redmond Municipal Airport, which thrives as a result of committed economic support from the region’s municipalities.
