Sunriver is lovely throughout the year, but something special happens when the chill of winter begins to frost the forest air among grooves of stretching pine trees. From a fantastic selection of winter recreation, to time spent cozying up around the crackling fireplace at night, winter is easily one of the best seasons to enjoy a Sunriver vacation.
Winter Activities for Enjoying the Outdoors
Sunriver has an abundance of winter recreation to offer up! At The Pavillion at the Sunriver Resort, you can partake in ice-skating beginning the day after Thanksgiving. For those looking for something a little more thrilling, Central Oregon Adventures offers snowmobile excursions just a short drive from our Sunriver properties. They offer two- and four-hour tours and give you plenty of free range to experience the rush of riding a snowmobile—the four-hour tour includes a stop at a mountain lodge where you can take a quick break with a steaming cup of hot chocolate! For those who enjoy skiing and snowboarding, the nearby Mt. Bachelor boasts several trails, including cross-country skiing trails and tubing. With Wanderlust Tours, you can book a guided snow-shoeing adventure, or you can rent them on your own and explore one of the many nearby trails, such as those in the Swampy Lakes snow area.
Events for Enjoying the Winter Season
The Village at Sunriver offers great winter shopping, with a selection of boutique shops, outdoor recreation stores, and local art galleries. They also offer seasonal events such as their Grand Illuminations tree lighting and meet and greets with Santa. At the SHARC Recreation center, you can enjoy luxuries like their indoor pool, and they also offer snow-tubing, with a special tubing event in December at night with black lights, hot chocolate, and glow sticks. And of course, favorite winter pastimes include simplicities such as strolls in the snow-covered woods, building snowmen, and cuddling up by the fire to spend time with your fellow vacationers.
