Mt. Bachelor (Bend, OR)

A dormant volcano that was first formed between 11,000 and 15,000 years ago, Mt. Bachelor is a true giant that reaches high into the Oregon sky. With activities as diverse as dog sledding, Nordic skiing, tubing, and of course – downhill skiing and snowboarding, there is a winter adventure waiting for the whole family.

The dry climate of Central Oregon assures that the 462 inches of annual snowfall on Mount Bachelor is light and fluffy, perfect for carving flawless S turns or learning to ski or snowboard. The resort offers 3,683 acres of terrain, 3,365 feet of vertical drop and 71 runs ranging from double black diamonds to easy green runs for first-timers. With one of the fastest lift systems in the west and the comforts of six day lodges with casual dining and retail, it’s no wonder Conde Nast Travel has named Bachelor one of the top 50 Ski Resorts in North America for 12 years in a row, and ranked it in the top 10.

But Bachelor is not just for skiers. The resort offers beginner and intermediate snowboard parks with tables, step-ups and step- downs, along with more challenging rails, ride-on boxes and mini tabletops. Mt. Bachelor’s Olympic sized Superpipe was the home to the Chevy Truck US Snowboard Grand Prix and 2006 Olympic Qualifier. According to TransWorld Snowboarding magazine readers, Mt. Bachelor is #4 in North America for snowboarding and was mentioned as “a place that suits all ages, levels, and styles of riders and riding.”
