Mt. Bachelor Ski Area

Only 20 minutes from Bend and Sunriver, Mt. Bachelor, a 9,065-foot volcanic cone, offers world-class skiing and snowboarding from November well into the spring. In the summers, the resort offers summer bike parks and, new for 2020, a zipline adventure. 

Famous for its deep powder and surfy terrain, the mountain annually plays host to Olympic hopefuls and international competitions. Not only is Mt. Bachelor a great place for expert skiers and riders to get that burn, it is also a fantastic place to learn a snow sport or take the family for an exciting day out. 

Mt. Bachelor recently expanded the learning terrain in the Sunrise Lodge base area with the addition of one new chairlift in addition to the existing Carrousel chair, plus two covered conveyor carpets. The resort is offering free and easy rides up the new 70-foot covered carpet conveyor lift open seven days a week. In addition the resort introduced the Woodward Terrain park, a network of featured terrain park zones all around the mountain. 

With 4,300 acres of terrain served by a network of eleven lifts, eight of which are high-speed quads (including the recently-added Cloudchaser lift), there’s room for every interest and ability. In addition to the world-renowned downhill skiing and snowboarding; snowshoeing tours, sled dog rides and Nordic skiing are all offered on site.

In the summertime, the resort offers lift served access to more than a dozen miles of downhill oriented bike trails and, new for 2020, the Northwest’s steepest, fastest, and highest-elevation zipline adventure. Also on tap are scenic chairlift rides, sunset dinner, disc golf and more. 

Located on Cascade Lakes Hwy, 22 miles southwest of Bend
