I lived in Vancouver, WA and worked in Portland, OR for 14 years and had never experienced central Oregon. I was too busy exploring the Willamette Valley when one day my husband said to me “We should move to Bend!” After the shock had worn off and I had processed what he said, I was intrigued that my Vancouver born and bred husband wanted to move 200 miles away. I was a military brat as a child so moving wasn’t a scary idea to me. However, the only memory I had of Bend was 7 years earlier when my husband was miserably sick and I tried out snowboarding for the first time which meant I spent most of the day falling on my bottom and was very sore the next day. Thus, I had a very hard time being on board with the idea of moving.
Spring in Sunriver is truly one of the best times to visit the area. Mt. Bachelor staying open through Memorial Day, combined with longer days and warmer weather, make your activity options almost endless. If you’re coming to Sunriver for Spring Break, you can plan kayaking, skiing, hiking and more all in one weeks time. Some have been known to ski in the morning and go for a kayak paddle in the afternoon.
The Pacific Crest Triathlon & Weekend Sports Festival is considered one of the most scenic races in the country and is held in one of Central Oregon’s favorite vacation destinations, Sunriver. So naturally, many athletes and their families who attend this fun-filled sports festival plan for an extended stay to take full advantage of everything the area offers.
