Work continues on the Sunriver Community’s most significant project in recent years, the SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatics and Recreation Center). This photo, taken several weeks ago from high above the SHARC, shows clearly how this 22 acre site is being filled with fun new facilities that Sunriver owners and Sunriver Resort visitors will enjoy year round.
Fabrice Beaudoin, Executive Chef at the Meadows at the Lodge Restaurant at Sunriver Resort was recently asked to submit his favorite summer dish to be included for a local cookbook. He chose to share the Chipotle-Ponzu Marinated Salmon recipe below. Enjoy!
Sunriver Resort is brimming with activity in the summer. Guests riding bikes, golfing, playing tennis, rafting, swimming and of course giggling can be heard in Sunriver during the day. One of the best activities in Sunriver, however, is simply waking up before all of this happens to catch a spectacular sunrise. The below shot was taken this weekend next to the Marina.
Yesterday we asked our 11,000+ Facebook followers if they had to choose one word to describe Sunriver Resort, which word would they choose. While most of the words posted denoted feelings of relaxation, peacefulness and tranquility there were some words that weren't really words at all (but we think they should be).
See the Tag Cloud of the responses below. The larger the word, the more frequently it was used to describe Sunriver Resort (Click the image for a larger version).
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.
The serve is one of the most difficult shots in all of tennis. At the same time it is one of the most important shots in all of tennis. Most players focus on simply getting the point started, which is obviously not a bad idea, but what if we could make our serve better than everyone we played? The biggest misconception is that you hit down on the ball to make it go in the box. In reality you actually want to make an aggressive move up to the ball, therefore actually hitting the ball up off of your strings.
Sunriver is a runner’s paradise. With thirty plus miles of paved bike paths, you can run for days on pavement. These bike paths make races like the Pacific Crest, Sunriver Marathon for a Cause, and the annual 4th of July Fun Run a breeze. But there is more to run on than just the pavement. Right outside of Sunriver proper there are miles of single-track and dirt trails perfect for a good morning trail run. And this morning, I decided to give some of that dirt a try.
Every week we take a group of teens on an Art Escape around Sunriver Resort in Central Oregon. Armed with a digital camera, we head out on bikes in search of inspiration that we can later use to create a work of art. Once our camera is loaded with great shots, we head back to the Outpost, Sunriver Resort's art center, and choose our medium. While the choices of mediums are glass, ceramics or acrylics, glass is by far the most popular choice!
Last week the Housekeeping Department at Sunriver Resort participated in “The Great Towel Animal Folding Competition”. About 15 housekeeping team members entered the competition in the following categories: Most Creative, Most Sunriver-tastic, Best Theme, Funniest, and Best Overall. Entries included: “Under the Sea”, “A Summer Day”, A Little Frog, Penguins, Collage #5, Dogs, Cats, Bears, and even a Spike cake! The creativity was amazing!
Working for a resort and booking meetings, incentives and retreats, I tend to keep up on all aspects of resort amenities and offerings. Everywhere you turn these days, there are articles about resort spa’s, and spa’s in general, catering to men these days. It is more socially acceptable for men to choose spa over golf when on site for an event or incentive. Heck, my 67 year old father just told me the other day that he went and got a pedicure with my mom. And asked if he would do it again and he said “In a heartbeat, my feet were so soft.” My dad?! If you knew him as I, you would be surprised too and listening to him explain the whole experience was hilarious. But, the matter of the fact is, that it is ok for men to go to the spa an get pampered too. And our Sage Spring Club and Spa is one of the best at this.
