There are lots of outdoors adventures in the mountains and on the water in this area. Snow has been falling pretty hard in the mountains, and some of the ski areas my be opening as early as this weekend. You can rent skis and take lessons at all of the areas. The nearest to Redmond is The Summit at Snoqualimie, about an hour drive from Redmond. Though this is the lowest of all of the ski areas and will be the last to open.
But the most amazing thing about the place? Every shop you go into has Scott Guthrie in it! No joke! (OK, not actual Scott Guthrie but there are an awful lot of people there who have worked extremely hard to master his speech inflections ...)
If you are lucky you might get a voucher to spend in the Company Store. Best value is software (hardware isn't discounted very much as there isn't that much profit on it in the first place).
@Charles: thanks, I will try that.
To everyone, thanks for the advice, lots of things to do.
