Happy New Year With Lots of New Snow!
By: Todd Wisniewski
It’s been a great start to the winter here at the Pine Ridge Inn, with Mt. Bachelor off to another great season with incredible skiing and riding conditions! With almost 2 feet of new snow this week leading into the New Year, and with more open terrain and snow currently than any other resort in the west, it’s shaping up to be another great winter in Bend and Central Oregon!
We’re excited to be working with Mt. Bachelor to offer value added ski packages. Did you know your kids ages 12 and younger ski and stay free?* Also – if you’re planning a quick trip to Bend, take a look at our Ski Free/Stay Free offerings – with your third night and third day of lift tickets FREE, it might be worth staying an extra night at the Pine Ridge Inn for a bonus day on the slopes of Mt. Bachelor!
Need skis or a fresh tune? We have that covered as well, partnering with our neighboring ski shop (also located conveniently across the street next to Cascade Lakes Brewery), The Plankery is offering overnight valet ski/board tune service for our guests – just leave your boards at the front desk, and they’ll be ready to go for first chair the next morning!
The Plankery also carries a wide selection of the most fun skis ever (according to our GM, currently skiing on a new pair of Praxis Protest powder skis) with the latest in all-mountain and powder ski technology. Travel light and contact us to inquire about adding a high-performance demo ski to your lodging package at the Pine Ridge Inn to save enough to cover dinner and drinks at your favorite Bend eatery.
Based on feedback from our guests (thank you by the way!) about the social hour hosted years ago here at the Pine Ridge Inn, we decided to bring this back in a new capacity this winter; featuring Fondue Fridays! Join us each Friday from 4-6pm this winter for cheese and chocolate fondue paired with local craft brew selections along with pairings with Oregon-based Naked Winery. Just another perk we’re offering to add value and fun for our guests.
Again – thanks for your feedback, which we appreciate and accept any time in the form of calls, emails, and reviews on TripAdvisor, Google, or Facebook. Don’t hesitate to contact us anytime if there’s anything we can do to assist with making your upcoming stay more enjoyable, or with comments on a recent visit to enhance your next trip to Bend and lodging with us at the Pine Ridge Inn.
From all of us at the Pine Ridge Inn, here’s to a great 2015! Have a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season, and we look forward to seeing you this year and next.
