A recent economic report found that resorts like Tetherow, Pronghorn and Sunriver have stabilized following the painful recession.

 

Josh Lerner with the Oregon Office for Economic Analysis says it's been true across Oregon.

 

"Leisure and hospitality is at an all time high and tha'ts both true across the state and in Bend.  And that has more to do with accommodations, hotels and restaurants and bars.  And that's where that job growth has been."

 

Unfortunately, tourism usually doesn't pay great wages, though destination resorts pay better than other places.

 

But the economic effects of this industry is in the neighborhood of 50 million in payroll.
