120 miles to the OSU Ducks. Portland is about the same distance and they have a basketball team, but I can't remember what they are called.

I am surrounded by National Forest, close enough to walk to the extensive trail system.

Paulina National Monument is about 20 miles. Crater Lake is about 90 miles.

Within 10 miles: golf, hiking, fishing, cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snow snowmobiling, cross country bike trails, white water rafting, canoeing, surfing, sailboarding, paddle boarding, international level bicycle racing, and our internationally famous Pole Peddle Paddle that brings in contestants from around the world.

ATV trails are 20 miles, technical rock climbing is 20 miles, sailing and water skiing are about 30 miles. Maybe 15 miles for hunting where you don't have to worry about shooting someone's house, although there are elk, deer, and dove right in my backyard. 30 miles to the closest ski lift, although a second one is about that same distance, and two more within 80 miles.
