Sunriver Resort Report


There are countless things to love about Central Oregon: the mountains, rivers, forests, activities, culture, dining - the list goes on. But the one on the top of my list has to be the microclimates.

As a self-professed weather dork, Central Oregon to me is a climatological heaven. The region of "Central Oregon" is generally defined by three counties of Deschutes, Jefferson and Crook from Madras in the north to LaPine to the south. Just 72 miles separate these boundaries. The further south you go the higher the elevation, which (among other geological factors) affects the weather in a very profound way.

Today is a perfect example of the microclimates in the region. Bend lies at 3,600 feet. Sunriver, just 15 miles to the south, lies at 4,155 feet. The picture below, taken at the exact same time, demonstrates the difference 555 feet in elevation (and proximity to the Cascades) can make. Snowing hard in Sunriver and barley a flake in Bend. Oh...I love it here!
