We lucked out and got a bunch of fresh snow the week we visited. We bought a 3 out of 5 day ski pass and skied three days in a row. Love how spread out the mountain is and how easy it is to navigate. The workers are friendly and helpful. Parking was not bad either. Hope to visit again... More

Grew up skiing Bachelor and have watched is turn into a first class ski mountain without the resort type atmosphere. The mountain is a great all-around ski area with enough variety to suit skiers of all types. Plus it is the only ski area within the PNW that has snow that can be called "true power".

I love skiing at Bachelor, because although it's big it has that small town ski resort feel about it, probably because it's right outside Bend. Thankfully, it is on Forest Service land so there are no condos and houses cluttering up the scenery- just beautiful views of the Cascade Mountains. Now for the food. It's expensive and it's lousy.

Mt Bachelor is a great place to ski. The mountain is big with terrain for all abilities and interests. And we have had great snow. Plus, there are enough fast lifts. We love it there.

Heading to Mt. Bachelor during a time when no one in the west was getting snow was a concern. But the snow on the mountain was great. This was my first visit to this ski resort. I typically ski Utah, so I'm very spoiled. This place did not disappoint and there is much more terrain to ski than meets the... More

Bachelor is one of the real gems in North America. Well-run, with loads of choices and excellent grooming. Even in this poor ski year for the West (oh, global-warming deniers), skiing was still excellent, top to bottom, well into March. Not the glitz of Aspen or Vail, but great skiing and extraordinary scenery from these volcanic mountains.

Well, with all of the snow seeming to hit the northeast this year, Mount Bachelor is the ski destination for the Pacific Northwest. The mountain has an abundance of runs from beginner to the advanced. With it's high elevation, it usually does not suffer too much from the lack of snow as opposed to other areas. The staff are quite... More

Too many runs to count, 7 or more fast lifts. including one to the top. Challenging terrain, friendly staff, excellent ski school. Several lodges, Only about 20 miles from Bend where adequate lodging ranging from budget or luxurious. Lod
