Bend, Oregon, is more than the mountain town of the moment—it’s become the West’s most adventurous place to be. The summit at Mt. Bachelor is now open for the season, giving you access to terrain at the highest ski spot in the Pacific Northwest.
If cross-country is more your speed, Mt. Bachelor’s Nordic Center has over a dozen groomed trails. And there’s plenty more! Outdoor ice skating, waterfall hikes, and riverside walks (keep an eye out for river surfers!) plus dog parks—Bend is super dog-friendly. Just make sure you’re back in town for après, where there’s a ridiculous amount of craft brewpub and brewery choices—from the well-known Deschutes, to locals’ standby, Crux, to the newcomer, Monkless.
Beer yoga? Yep! Snowshoes, views, and brews? Uh huh! An Ale Trail? Of course! Bend definitely knows how to combine its love of beer and the great outdoors. Snow doubt about it: Bend is après everything!
