Central Oregon is an outdoor recreation paradise, where you can ski, bike or climb in the morning and kayak in the afternoon. Then at night, you can continue the adventure down the Bend Ale Trail. Situated on the edge of a desert and at the base of a mountain range Central Oregon’s high desert gets the best of both climates. This weather is some of the most user-friendly in the Pacific Northwest due to its location on the east side of the Cascades, which creates a wonderfully dry rain shadow. With as many as 300 sunny days a year, there is ample opportunity to get outside and play. There are big sky views of the Three Sisters from almost every part of the region and there are rivers that flow through every town.
