Snow Riders' Guide | Snow Riders' Guide | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

For some, opening day of ski and snowboard season is waaayy better than Christmas morning. Fresh snow, fresh gear...and this year, a lot of new terrain to explore.

For an area that continues to experience massive growth, having more space to spread out our ski tips is a very good thing. Still, growth has its growing pains. In this year's Snow Riders' Guide, we're bringing you not only the details on those new runs, but also how to drive like a local in winter conditions, how to treat your lifties, and what else you could be doing besides skiing this year. As you dust off your skis, snowboards, skins and skijoring equipment, peruse these pages for some fun and informative info on the coming season. Let's ride!

Take a look at our 2016 Snow Riders' Guide articles:

· Lazy Skiers' Delight

· A Mountain of Growth

· The Not-So-Glamorous Life of a Lifty

· Drive Like a Local

· Bundled Up for Fun
