The friendly town of Bend offers a warm inviting mountain getaway with a cosmopolitan appeal. With a rich timber history, today it is the largest city in Central Oregon with a population of 87,000. Swanky bars occupy defunct mill buildings and offer 26 craft breweries making Bend beer scene only second to Portland. They also have a great selection of wineries and distilleries to choose from. Check out this video commentary by Drew Bledsoe, former NFL quarterback who lives in Bend, OR of why he loves Mt. Bachelor.
Located in central Oregon, Mt. Bachelor rises 9,065 feet, creating an endless winter from Thanksgiving to July! The mountain has an almost mythic reputation among purists for the quality of its snow. A comprehensive series of 10 chairlifts including 7 high speed quads gives you access to the entire mountain covering powder chutes, forested trails, cruising runs, and above-the-tree line snow fields with fun for every ability level. A new quad lift Cloudchaser opened last season expanding an additional 635 acres of blue terrain on the southeastern portion of the mountains. By careful design, beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain is accessible off most lifts so families and friends can enjoy their favorite type of skiing and still stay in the same general area to ride the lifts. With 3,686 acres of skiable terrain, you won’t get bored with this majestic beauty. Check out all of these other optional skiing and non-skiing activities for additional cost: ACTIVITIES.
If you need refresher ski lessons, hone your skills or want to explore the mountain in a small group, check out these options. There are other mountain activities you may want to explore: Big Mountain Heli Tour, sled dog rides or snow shoe tours.
