SUNRIVER, Ore., Dec. 30, 2007 — It has been a banner winter thus far for Sunriver Resort as the Central Oregon-based property has been honored for excellence by three national publications as well as a prestigious international organization:

1. Condé Nast Traveler.  For the 12th time in 12 years, the publication’s “Readers’ Ski Poll” placed Sunriver Resort among the “Top 50 Ski Hotels” in North America.  Only 18 miles from Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort, Sunriver Resort is one of only 13 resorts to make the Condé Nast Traveler’s readers’ poll every year since its inception in 1995.  (Mt. Bachelor, meanwhile, earned a spot on the publication’s “Top 20 Ski Resorts” ranking.)

2. Travel & Leisure Golf.  In the magazine’s 2007 “World’s Best Golf Resorts” annual survey of its readers, Sunriver Resort placed second behind only Pebble Beach Resorts in the category, “Best for Family Trips” for the West and Northwest region.

3. Golf Odyssey.  For the second year in a row, the international luxury travel golf newsletter named Sunriver Resort one of the four “Best Resorts for Family Foursomes.”  In addition, Golf Odyssey this year also ranked Sunriver Resort as one of the world’s four “Best Places for Same-Day Golf & Skiing.”  Sunriver was the lone U.S. property listed, joined by resorts in France and Canada.  The honors were part of the publication’s “Platinum Places” rankings in its year-end awards issue.

4. Audubon International.  Sunriver Resort recently learned that its award-winning Crosswater Golf Course has retained its designation as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.” The Audubon program promotes ecologically sound land management and the conservation of natural resources on established golf courses.  According to Jim Sluiter, staff ecologist for Audubon International, Crosswater is “to be commended for its efforts to provide a sanctuary for wildlife on the golf course property.”  Crosswater, which originally earned the Audubon designation in 1999, is one of fewer than 650 courses in the world to be so honored.  The recertification process takes place every two years.
