The Great Outdoors: Before Bachelor, Bendites still found places to ski


For many people, one of the greatest perks of living in Bend is having Mt. Bachelor right out the back door.

But Bend had plenty of skiers and lots of snow before the resort opened – so where did they go play?

Central Oregon Daily’s Brooke Snavely answers that question in this week’s The Great Outdoors, sponsored by Parr Lumber.

Steve Stenkamp, former Bend Mayor and local ski historian featured in this The Great Outdoors segment, is giving another “Lost Oregon Ski Areas” presentation on Tuesday, February 18, at 7 p.m. at FivePine Lodge in Sisters.
