The days may be short and the air may be cold, but that only fuels Central Oregon’s adventurous spirit.
Even in the cold and snow, you won’t find Central Oregon hibernating. Winter offers a whole new world to explore, from skiing and snowmobiling to snowshoeing and ice-skating. You can begin with fresh tracks on the mountain at Mt. Bachelor or Hoodoo Ski Area and end with fireside après ski at any number of breweries and restaurants in town. Fill your day with other local adventures in this winter wonderland, from visiting exhibits at the High Desert Museum to discovering a new band at a local bar or venue. In the winter, bluebird days aren’t a rarity in Central Oregon and you’ll find plenty of reasons to get outside.
In addition to downhill sports, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, Mt. Bachelor offers regularly scheduled dogsled tours led by qualified guides. Oregon Trail of Dreams, owned by an Iditarod-competing family, takes guests into parts of the forest many people never see.
