Sunriver, Oregon – Putting the “Unforgettable” in Your Family Vacation

The premier vacation destination in the Pacific Northwest

When the weather cools and the snow starts to fly, few places are as magical as Sunriver Resort. Golf courses become perfect Nordic skiing routes. The ice rink fills up with families not worried about looking silly on skates and resort shuttle vans are joined on the streets by horse drawn sleds.

Sunriver shines in the snow as it plays host to vacationers hitting the slopes of Mt. Bachelor just 19 scenic miles away. Rental shops like Sunriver Sports and 4 Season Recreation Outfitters will do just that – outfit you for whatever winter adventure you have planned.

Along with the Pacific Northwest’s largest ski area up the road, Sunriver boasts hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails nearby, giving sledders a chance to explore deep into the forest.

Some of the region’s most anticipated annual events happen each winter in Sunriver including the Traditions Holiday Celebration. The festivities runs from just after Thanksgiving through New Year’s day and features Central Oregon’s largest holiday light display, Santa’s workshops, fun runs and the Gingerbread Junction – hundreds of ornate gingerbread houses that are auctioned off for a local charity. Enjoy the epitome of farm-to-table fine dining at Sunriver’s new restaurants, Carson’s American Kitchen and the Twisted River Tavern. Or just sit by the fire and have a drink at The Living Room, which looks out over the idyllic meadows below.

Central Oregon becomes a real-life snow globe every winter, it’s up to you to shake up your usual Christmas break trip.
