The Odd Season: A celebration of the strange time, the in-between, the random trips, and unexpected good times.
Catch some weird waves on the Deschutes River: Normally, when we talk about surfing, we’re talking Westport, but odd is as odd does, and you can river surf right in the middle of Bend at the Bend Whitewater Park.
Spring skiing at Mt. Bachelor: Just because it’s warming up doesn’t mean you can’t take some runs, and Bachelor is a great place to get those final turns of the season in.
Meet your new favorite beer: Take a pub crawl through one of Bend’s many *many* breweries, throw back some cold ones with friends, and meet new friends along the way. You never know what kind of stories you’ll hear.

Snow-hiking in the Enchantments: It’s pre-permit time in the Enchantments, so if you’ve got the wheels and the will, there’s hardly a better time to get out there. Just be smart, stay safe, and have a blast.
