Bundle Up

With more winter activities than you can shake a stick at, you are going to need an extra day. Or two.

There’s No Play Like Snow Play

Bend has two nearby ski resorts boasting plenty of fresh powder and long runs. Both Mt. Bachelor and Hoodoo Ski Area offer boundless ski, snowboard, and cross-country ski trails. Buy those lift tickets ahead of time, since COVID regulations require advance reservations in many places. For a little family fun, grab your sleds and head for one of several sno-parks in the region.

Embrace the dizzying joy of winter with a twirl around an ice rink, rent a snowmobile for a high-octane adventure, or head out on a guided snowshoe hike from Wanderlust Tours.


Beer Tastes Better in Bend

Trek the world famous Bend Ale Trail sampling craft beers at ​countless award-winning Bend breweries along the way. Find a cozy spot beside a glowing fire pit with your favorite brew in hand while the snow falls around you. Whether you’re wild for wheat ales or passionate about porter, we’ve got your next winter belly-warmer here in Bend.

Not in the Mood for Snow?

If playing in snow all day isn’t your jam, you’ll still find plenty to do in Bend this winter. Lace up your hiking boots and hit the trails at scenic spots like Smith Rock State Park or Pilot Butte, which is closed to cars in the winter. The Oregon Desert Trail in the Badlands is often snow-free, while a hike up Horse Ridge offers stunning views of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains.

Scope out Bend’s foodie scene with a stroll around ​Downtown Bend and the Old Mill District. Plan ahead by making reservations at one of our award-winning restaurants for a bite to eat. Visit one of the many coffee shops for a warm mug of cocoa to sip while you stroll hand in hand embracing your snowmance.

Got the kids in tow? Bend has plenty of indoor activities for the whole family, from Museums and arcades, to trampoline parks and indoor go-kart tracks.
