About Mt. Bachelor
Just west of ‘Bend’, and named as one of the best ski towns in the world by National Geographic, sits Mt. Bachelor, the largest ski area in the Cascades.
What’s not to love with Mt Bachelor’s 360 degrees of skiable terrain spread over nearly 4,318 acres from its 9,065 foot Stratovolcano, this is home of the highest resort peak elevation in the Pacific Northwest!
Lined with high-speed quads, Bachelor sits on the drier, east side of the Cascades, and boasts lighter snow than the Pacific cement that coats many mountains along this coastline. Blessed with over 462″, beginner and intermediate runs are scattered throughout, and with 50 percent of its alpine terrain rated black, or double-black, experts will certainly get there fill. Thus, from the summit, adventuresome skiers and boarders can jump cornices into the blasted-open summit crater, or head for the mountain’s backside of wide-open, backcountry-style double-blacks; Bachelor’s total vertical drop is a satisfying 3,365 feet.
Typically open from Thanksgiving deep into May, Mt. Bachelor’s close proximity to Bend and Sunriver means there is no shortage of nightlife, lodging and other outdoor adventure. After a fun filled day on the slopes, head back to town to relax and recharge, or head back early late in the season and get in a round of golf, some mountain biking, hiking, or shopping!
Families will of course love Mt Bachelor, and best news of course is Kids 12 years and under Ski for FREE!
Stay just 20 minutes from Mt. Bachelor in the town of Bend or Sunriver. Both towns provide great atmosphere, a wide range of non-ski activities, restaurants & bars plus over two dozen breweries!
