Sunset Dinners

Optional Mt. Bachelor Sunset Dinner

Optional Sunset Dinner at Mt Bachelor – located 23 miles Southwest of Bend, along the Cascade Lakes Highway, Mt Bachelor hosts world class skiing during the winter months. This "on-your-own package" includes a gondola ride to Mt Bachelor Lodge and back with dinner for a truly unique sunset dining experience. Reservations are on-your-own. They will reserve the entire night for 200 people for our group through the end of July, after which, they will open it up to the public. Sunset on Thursday, Sept 9th is 7:26pm, so we recommend either the 6:00, 6:30 or 7:00 seatings. Sponsoring clubs are being encouraged to reserve as a group, which avoids the mad scramble for typical Holiday dinners!  Dinner packages are $70/per adult.

Additional information on Sun Country Tours and the Mt. Bachelor Sunset Dinner may be downloaded here.

Direct booking for 2-8 people for this event is available here.

Optional Dinner at the Cowboy Dinner Tree

Tucked away in Oregon’s Outback, you will find a unique place that hearkens back to an earlier time. The Cowboy Dinner Tree is a small restaurant located in Silver Lake Oregon, about an hour and a half southeast of Bend. The restaurant is only open from 4:00-8:30 pm four days per week and reservations are required. They give you ample portions of food here and you are advised to bring a cooler for leftovers. They do not take credit cards or debit cards so have cash on hand! Reservations are on-your-own. Additional information is available here.
