Known all over the world as the high desert playground, Bend and Central Oregon offer a world-class example of every type of recreation. The Bay Area might have invented mountain biking, but Central Oregon has perfected it. Our fly-fishing is second to none and our skiing is the best in the Northwest. If you like your recreation a bit more low key, a walk along the Deschutes River on your way to dinner in the Old Mill is just the ticket. Find yourself in downtown after a day on the slopes enjoying music or finding a great place to eat. Apres Ski in Bend.
