Eight European journalists are visiting Central Oregon this week. They were invited by KLM/Delta Airlines to experience and write about Central Oregon's winter wonderland. Kristine McConnell with the Central Oregon Visitors Association says they plan to spend a lot of time on Mt. Bachelor: "Their main focus is skiing. But some of them will be focusing on Oregon and Central Oregon lifestyle as well. They're ready to hit the slopes today and ready to do some other winter activities, mainly on the mountain. But, they'll be heading to downtown Bend for dinner. And they were able to see Smith Rock and go to the Warm Springs Museum. So they're doing a little bit of everything while they're here." McConnell says COVA and Travel Oregon have teamed up to host the visitors. The exposure for Central Oregon will be invaluable. The journalists are from England, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium. She adds if you're out and about and run into someone with an accent, to give them a big Central Oregon welcome.
