Take Advantage of Spring Skiing Conditions
Spring skiing and snowboarding has a totally different feel than in the depths of winter. Few things beat riding in sunglasses and a hoodie on a bluebird day. Or that random last blast of powder at the end of the season that reminds you why you strap skis or a snowboard on your feet in the first place. Take advantage of a snowy spring in the Cascade Mountains by reserving lodging from Sunset Lodging in Sunriver. Warm up in the hot tub after a day of spring skiing with friends, you won’t regret it!
