Exciting Outdoor Recreation
Sunriver has tons of winter recreation to offer up! The nearby Mt. Bachelor is only a short and scenic drive away, and offers several exciting ski trails, as well as cross-country skiing and snow-tubing. If you’re searching for a real thrill to start your year off with, you could go on a snowmobile excursion with Central Oregon Adventures, where one of their tours includes a stop at a mountain lodge where you can relax with a cup of hot cocoa! You can rent snowshoes to explore the Swampy Lakes Trails all on your own, or you can elect to take a guided tour with Wanderlust Tours. In town, you’ll find classic winter pastimes like ice-skating at The Pavilion at the Sunriver Resort, as well as snow-tubing at the SHARC recreation center. Of course, you can always enjoy nature all on your own by taking a walk along the frosty Deschutes River, or making your own Frosty the Snowman right in your front yard!
Great New Year’s Eve Events
There’s plenty of great New Year’s Eve 2019 events in Sunriver! At the Sunriver Resort, you can spend the night dancing away to live music and specialty drinks at their ticketed New Year’s Eve party.

For a break from the parties and a peaceful way to ring in the new year is to go on a bonfire tour with Wanderlust Tours, where you snowshoe out to a bonfire with hot cocoa and champagne toasts to the new year. Of course, you can always ring in the new year cozied up by the fire and start the first day off by skiing down the mountainside!

Having a day to celebrate, appreciate, and honor mom is the least we can do. Whether you’re a mom yourself or you plan to take your mom out on that day, Sunriver has a lot to offer on that special day. You can always treat mom to one of the many brunches offered especially on that day or you can take her to a spa. Spas are a great idea since mom can have any package she likes to pamper, rejuvenate, and relax her. Check out our favorite Mother’s Day activities in Sunriver below!
Mother’s Day Brunch Buffet
Carson’s American Kitchen offers a special brunch buffet for mom. Treat her to a sumptuous brunch to start her day right. The menu will leave her spoilt for choice. If mom likes seafood, there’s plenty on the menu. Pacific salmon, shrimp, spicy salmon rolls, ahi tuna rolls and vegetarian rolls with soy sauce, pickled ginger, wasabi, and roasted sesame seeds are for seafood lovers. Or you could treat her to Slow Roasted Prime Rib Eye, or Roasted Pork Porchetta. It costs $55 per adult while children 5 and under are free.
What better way to make mom feel special on her special day than to take her to a spa? Let her relax and unwind while she chooses from the many packages on offer like facials, massage, acupuncture, hot stone massage, manicure and pedicure, and many others. Mom will feel like a new person by the end of the massage session. Hair and skin care services are also available. The various massage types soothe aching pains, undo muscle knots, and elicit deep states of relaxation. Many spas in town offer packages and discounts on Mother’s Day, so you might want to take advantage of those promotions.
Sunriver shopping is a favorite for moms. But while on an average day mom will be mostly shopping for groceries and necessities, the Sunriver shopping with your mom will be different. It’s your opportunity to let her know that you appreciate all she has done for you by taking her Sunriver shopping. Clothes are an obvious first choice. Let mom try out different clothing items and spend as much time choosing that snazzy bag or pair of shoes as she likes. It’s her day, and she deserves every bit of attention, care, and love you can give her.
