Winter visits Bend between November and April.


Keeping the runway open at the Bend Municipal Airport when there is snow on the ground is our goal. To do this requires a high level of coordination between pilots, the FBO, tenants and our snow removal contractors. Please check NOTAMS. Here is the link to AWOS. Please help us by keeping informed and up to date and doing your part to ensure coordination.

PRIORITY AREAS

The City’s first priority is to remove the snow from the runway along with access to Air Ambulance (red). This is followed by access to the FBO and all access roads (orange). Taxiways will be cleared next (yellow). Finally, we’ll address snow on the taxilanes and hangar accesses (green). Tenants can help us by only storing snow in designated snow storage areas. These areas are designated in blue on all maps.
