Driving into Oregon, we knew we have to make the stop in Bend. Not solely because we have friends there or have time to ride the incredibly playful mountain of Mt. Bachelor, but for the plentiful options of craft breweries. Got into Bend around 8pm and decided on the Crux Fermentation Project for their tasting room and our sustenance for the evening. After a few drinks, we realized we didn't have a place to stay that night, had a few more and started sparking some conversations. Met some local ladies that offered us a place to stay for the evening.
After enjoying the few days off the slopes, it was time to head up to Crystal Mountain, Washington for the FWQ 4* Event.
