Spring Break in Sunriver

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.

If you’re looking for some great events to keep your crew entertained, we’ve got some ideas for you here.

Subaru Winterfest 2018

Mt. Bachelor always has an events calendar that is packed with good times in the Spring. March 16 – 18th, join fellow snow-lovers and celebrate all things winter at the Subaru Winterfest 2018. Enjoy live music, s’mores and coffee while taking advantage of daily giveaways and test out the latest gear.

Hella Big Air

On Saturday, March 31st come up to watch the 10 Barrel Brewing Co 3rd Annual Hella Big Air. There will be a Hella Big Party going on while you watch some top competitors hit a 95-foot jump. This 90’s themed party will not disappoint. Come for the entertainment, the prizes, the party and more!

Stay tuned to the Mt. Bachelor website for their 2018 Spring skiing specials.

Sunriver March Mudness

Gather your friends and family and prepare to get down and dirty. March 25th is the 6th annual Sunriver March Mudness. This 1.5 mile annual event is meant for all ages and geared towards those that want to have FUN!

There are obstacles such as tires to step through, a spider web weave, sloth crossing a mud crawl over and under different hurdles. This is truly a non-competitive and family-friendly event. It is encouraged to take your time and enjoy yourself! One of the most fun things about Spring in Central Oregon is that our weather is SO unpredictable. The weather could be wet and rainy, cold and snowy or sunny and warm. Come to the race dressed weather-appropriate. And, no matter the weather, prepare to get WET and DIRTY!

A portion of proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society – La Pine-Sunriver Relay for Life, Sunriver Citizens Patrol – Shop with a Cop, and the Sunriver Fire Department – Stairclimb Fund.

As spring draws closer, more events and activities will be popping up. Keep your eye on our event calendar for more great events this spring. We also have some great input on hikes, floats, dining and more in some past blog posts. Check out our list below:
