Sunriver Resort Report


Now, I am not exactly what you would call an avid skier.  I actually learned to ski this year during Mt. Bachelor’s Ski and Ride in Five Program.  I learned to ski in five lessons and then skied twice a week for the rest of the season…it really is great to live in Central Oregon and work at Sunriver Resort.  When I found out Mt. Bachelor was opening for the Fourth of July weekend, I jumped at the chance to ski in July. 

Early Sunday morning, I packed all of my ski gear, put on my ski pants over my shorts, threw on a windbreaker and headed to the mountain.  I joined hundreds of other energetic and colorful skiers and snowboarders on the lift.  People wore all kinds of clothing from full ski gear to shorts and bikini tops.  I braved the Summit lift and successfully completed a few runs down… a first for me! (Although, it may have taken me at least 35 minutes to make my way down…I am a master at zig-zagging across the run). 

As soon as the snow started getting a bit slushy, my crew and I left and headed for Prineville Reservoir, a beautiful lake about an hour away to spend the rest of our day boating and jet skiing. 

It is no secret that I love living in Central Oregon and really take advantage of everything it has to offer, but skiing in the morning and swimming in the afternoon will definitely be a day to beat.
