Late-Season Ski Time
If you’re planning Easter in Bend, Oregon and were hoping to still be able to ski a little, you’re in luck: Mount Bachelor’s ski season typically runs well into May. Just a short drive from Bend, this premier resort is the sixth-largest ski area in the United States, and offers over 100 runs to choose from, whether you’re a novice or an expert. It also offers up some special treats, like Woodward Mountain Park, where snowboarders and skiers alike will find a variety of features to challenge their skills on the slopes. Built with a progression of skills in mind, Woodward aims to help teach all learners how to develop their techniques over time with various sizes of banks, jumps, rails, pipes, and boxes.
Another fun family thing to do at Mount Bachelor is take a sled dog ride! Sit back and watch the world go by, pulled by a friendly, furry team of strong sled dogs, commanded by an elite Iditarod-finishing athlete. This unique experience is one you won’t soon forget! Passionate animal lovers are also welcome to help feed, water, and care for the dogs at the end of their run.
Indulge Your Wanderlust
One of the best tour companies in Bend specializes in a variety of unique experiences. Wanderlust Tours offers snowshoe tours when the weather’s cold; choose from several options, including the Shoes, Brews, and Views tour that winds you up at an amazing overlook, with a fine craft brew in hand. You can also opt for an exotic nighttime tour, either Moonlight & Starlight, which focuses on the vast night sky, or Bonfire on the Snow, which is what it sounds like. Either way, you’ll get to experience the traditional practice of snowshoeing, and you’ll have a great time! Wanderlust even offers a Snow Camping experience, in which the brave and bold can learn the fine art of building a snow cave and sleeping in it. Not for the faint of heart, but you’ll definitely never forget it!
Cycling in Bend
A great way to warm up and forget about the cold when the weather is nippy is to hop on a bike. Even when there’s snow on the ground, Bend folks keep pedaling on fat tire bikes. Although springtime might be a bit muddy for mountain biking on trails, it’s a great time to explore Bend’s network of paved and gravel bike paths, some of which follow the Deschutes River, and some of which wind out of town in various directions. There are so many bike rental shops in Bend, so if your rental home isn’t equipped with bikes, you should have no problem finding bikes to suit you, whether you prefer mountain or road bikes, or something unique like tandem, recumbent, or electric. It’s recommended to call and reserve before your trip, though, as bikes are extremely popular right now nationwide, and you wouldn’t want to be left without.
The Bend Ale Trail
Finally, when you’re ready to get indoors and warm up from all those exciting outdoor adventures, the Bend Ale Trail is a must for those who love a good craft beer. Bend is an epicenter of Oregon’s microbrewery scene, and the Bend Ale Trail is a great way to keep track of which ones you’ve already visited. You can even redeem your “passport” for a prize once you’ve completed your circuit! Many of Bend’s best are within walking distance of downtown, so no one will be tempted to drink and drive.
However, if you would like to travel faster than your feet can carry you on your brewery crawl, why not hop aboard Cycle Pub? This truly unique Oregonian invention is a multi-person bike contraption that takes you on a tour from brewery to brewery. It’s a really fun way to make sure your beer tour is both safe and memorable!
Enjoy planning your wonderful Bend, Oregon Easter!
