Looking to plan a Martin Luther King weekend getaway with plenty of snow and winter outdoor activities to choose from? Sunriver is the place to go! Head to Mt Bachelor for skiing, the Village for ice skating, shopping and dining, and the High Desert Museum for learning and discovery.
Check out our list of ideas for a fun-filled MLK weekend getaway:
Mt Bachelor is the 6th largest ski resort in North America, offering 800+ acres for skiing and 20 groomed runs. It has one of the longest ski seasons, with runs operating thru Memorial Day weekend. There is something for everyone – skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, cross-country skiing, and more!
The whole family will enjoy a visit to this open-air mall where you can find great restaurants and shops, family entertainment, and outdoor recreation rentals. Make sure and stop by the ice-skating pavilion where you can glide across the ice, or watch skaters zoom by from the comfort of the designated viewing area. No trip to the rink is complete without a stop at Goody’s for an artisanal hot chocolate.
Sunriver Trail Rides offers a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride through Meadows Golf Course at Sunriver Resort. Their Victorian open-carriage sleighs are led by a team of majestic Haflinger horses, and hold four adults and two children under 55 lbs comfortably.
Encounter wildlife up close, explore the history of the wild West, and observe beautiful art exhibits. This beloved museum is set on 135 acres of awe, and is consistently voted one of the best things to do in Central Oregon.
Current winter exhibit: Under the Snow
December 17, 2022 through May 7, 2023
Discover a hidden world in this immersive and bilingual exhibit. In the depths of winter, a deep layer of snow quiets the High Desert’s forests, but under the surface, a secret world has come to life. Come learn how animals create a matrix of tunnels to survive the winter’s freezing temperatures and hide from predators that are lurking above.
Plan an after dark visit to the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, the largest of its kind in the country, for mesmerizing views of the night sky. Sunriver’s elevation, dark skies free of light pollution, and crisp clear air, make it the perfect location for stargazing.
Relax in your Meredith Lodging vacation rental. Enjoy your morning coffee with a view, gather round the dining table for pizza and game night (order from Blondie’s), or relax in the hot tub after a long day on the mountain under a starry winter’s sky.
