How To Chill Out This Winter In Bend, Oregon

We take winter seriously in Bend, Oregon.

At the first flurry of snow, you’ll hear a collective cheering around town. Bendites welcome winter with open arms every year, because let’s face it, who doesn’t love ‘rush hour traffic’ when it looks like this?

Winter is the perfect time to get outside and chill out.

There’s nothing we love more in Bend than getting outside.  While we’re mostly known for having a world renowned ski resort, we’re also home to several other outdoor activities that will have you chilling out in no time.

–> Head Up To The Mountain

Home to more than just skiing and snowboarding, Mt. Bachelor is filled with outdoor activities for all ages and skill levels:


–> Go On Tour

Experience the outdoors like never before. Day or night, brew in hand, or seeing it all from high above the ground, there’s a tour for that:


–> Stay Closer To Town

You don’t need to travel far. Enjoy some Winter fun closer to town on wheels or skates:


–> Chill Out Fireside

There are plenty of options to defrost with a drink in hand: Heated benches at The Lot, or gather around the fire pits après ski at a local brewery/gathering spot, including: McMenamins Old St. Francis School, Worthy Brewing, 10 Barrel Brewing, Crux Fermentation Project, Washington Dining & Cocktails in NorthWest Crossing, Anthony’s in the Old Mill District, or downtown at Crows Feet Commons.
