After a long day on the slopes or hitting the cross-country trails, what sounds better than a big bowl of chili and a beer? Or a burger smothered in cheese and served with a local brew?
We'll tell you what sounds better — a bargain on that chili or burger.
Local restaurateurs are coming through for you. With after-ski specials ranging from $5 appetizers to a free buffet to complimentary sodas if you do a “snow dance in your snow pants,” apres-ski (that's French for after skiing) deals abound in Central Oregon. We surveyed restaurants in the coming-home-from-the-mountain locales of Bend, Sunriver and Sisters to find out what kind of deals they had available by 4 p.m. — a good time for a post-ski snack.
Whether you are stopping for a bite in Sisters after hitting Hoodoo or want to fuel up on your way back to Bend from Bachelor, check out this (by no means complete) list of deals to be had.
