With winter just around the corner, it’s time to map out your snowy Sunriver vacation. Whether you’re skiing at Mt. Bachelor, snowshoeing through the forest, or zipping through the trees on a snowmobile there are plenty of winter activities in Sunriver.
Mt. Bachelor is approximately a 20-minute drive from Sunriver. Once there, you’ll find an activity for every member of your family. Mom and dad can hit the slopes while the young ones hang out in the warmth with the Mt. Bachelor childcare program. If your kiddos are a bit older and feeling adventurous, Mt. Bachelor provides ski and snowboard lessons for ages starting at just four years old. If you didn’t bring your own gear, the mountain has you covered with their equipment rental program.
Another fun activity up at Mt. Bachelor is their Snowblast Tubing. Fun for the whole family, you hop on a tube, get towed up a hill near the bottom of Red Chair and then zip down the 800-foot hill full of rollers! Be sure to reserve your spot as busy weekends and holiday periods sell out quickly. If you need to rent gear, Village Bike & Ski offers guests of Village Properties all your winter equipment at a discounted rate.
