Skiing/snowboarding and golf may seem like completely different sports, and they are. They are even played in two completely different seasons with the exception of those die-hard golfers who like to go out and play a round in their down jacket mid-winter. That said, they do have one major thing in common with each other. The ideas of unwinding and relaxing post-activity are shared by both through the concepts of après-ski and the 19th hole.
On the surface, après-ski and the 19th hole represent the social activities for two contrasting sports. However, they share the common idea of unwinding and relaxing after a day of activity. Après-ski is a term that describes the array of social activities and entertainment that take place after a day of skiing or snowboarding, while the 19th hole is a term used in golf to describe the bar or clubhouse where golfers gather after completing a round.
For the most part, the two activities traditionally take place in different seasons and can rarely be combined. But, it is not impossible to enjoy both at once. You just need to find the perfect location, and that place is Bend, Oregon. There, the nearby mountain of Mt. Bachelor remains open and covered in snow and golf courses have already opened for the season. This ultimately provides the perfect opportunity to indulge in both après-ski and the 19th hole in one picturesque and serene setting.
Simultaneously Enjoy Après-ski and the 19th Hole at Tetherow Resort
Tetherow Resort offers a unique experience where guests can simultaneously enjoy breathtaking views, a warm and inviting atmosphere, and exciting recreational activities. The resort boasts panoramic views of both the golf course and the surrounding area, which capture the magnificent peak of Mount Bachelor off in the distance. Spanning across its beautiful grounds, Tetherow Resort invites visitors to be immersed in the serene surroundings and savor the view.
This idyllic setting is one of a kind but what truly sets the resort apart is the opportunity to blend two contrasting yet equally enjoyable activities in one day. With Mt. Bachelor operating through Memorial Day weekend this season, guests can hit the slopes in the morning and enjoy skiing or snowboarding before seamlessly transitioning into an afternoon filled with golfing at Tetherow.

Tetherow golf course designed by local Bend resident David Kidd, has garnered a sterling reputation of excellence in golfing circles, earning plaudits such as being named The 15 Best Golf Courses in Oregon by Golf Magazine. The course, inspired by the Scottish Highlands, recently celebrated 15 years of operation since opening for the season on April 9th.
These accolades are well earned as Tetherow golf course can prove to be a formidable challenge, even for seasoned golfers. Its faded fescue fairways, hidden bunkers, firm-and-fast playing conditions, and dramatic elevation changes are sure to humble even the best players.
This ultimately makes a post-activity break at The Row that much more important. There, visitors who delight in both skiing and golfing will enjoy the resort's distinctive combination of après-ski and the 19th hole as a much-needed reinvigoration from their full day on the slopes and the links.

An Assortment of Craft Beer and Creative Cocktails at The Row
At The Row, the dining experience goes beyond the food, offering a variety of well-crafted cocktails, beer, and wine options to suit every taste. For anyone seeking the ultimate Bend experience, Boneyard Brewing's RPM IPA is a quintessential choice that never fails to impress. In fact, it is widely viewed as one of the best beers in the Pacific Northwest.
Upon taking a sip, you'll immediately notice its slightly sweet maltiness that is perfectly balanced by the unique composition of five Pacific Northwest hops. The beer has a well-rounded flavor with a strong but not overwhelming bitterness, and a pleasant finish that leaves a soft hoppy aftertaste on the tongue.
As someone who appreciates a good IPA, I would absolutely recommend RPM IPA by Boneyard Brewing to anyone who loves hoppy beers. Its smooth drinkability and the well-rounded flavor had me drinking copious amounts of this beer while on my trip there and it is hands down one of the best beers, I've had in the past year.
Great beer is not all that is on The Row's drink menus. Don't overlook the creative craft cocktails they are stirring up. When it comes to cocktails, The Row's take on an Aperol Spritz is a guest favorite and always a refreshing choice. Whether you're in the mood for craft beer, a delicious wine, or a creative cocktail, The Row has something for everyone, making it an ideal spot for a memorable night out.
