Went to Mt Bachelor for my first try and snow boarding and it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. I rented equipment and Laura helped fit me with what I needed including the proper board. I took lessons with Nate who was very patient and got me up and moving the right direction. Everyone else I met from... More

Mt Bachelor has done a great job with grooming and snow maintenance in a very challenging season (2014/2015). But they're seriously damaging their credibility with the current Northwest lift fiasco. In all my years of skiing, I've never seen or heard of this much impact from a mechanical failure. In my conversations with other season pass holders over the past... More

Coming to this mountain, I had high expectations, and they were met. The mountain, when open all the way, is massive. There is a ton of terrain to ski/board. Awesome tree runs. Unfortunately, we did not have any powder at the time of visit (hard pack), but had a blast either way. The best thing about this resort is the... More

Well, 2015 has not turned out to be a great ski season in the West. We just spent two days on the mountain, and were surprised how good it was. A little icy in spots, but all the lifts were running and everything was covered except a few spot on bottom of the lowest runs. It will be grim in... More

Once again, Mt Bachelor had a power outage today and the chairs had to run on their extremely slow diesel engines. It was windy today but Powdr corp, who owns Mt B, has every opportunity all summer, every summer, to make their power source bomb proof. Just another of many examples of Powdr corp not maintaining the area for the... More

My review is colored by the fact that on a week's trip we really only had one good ski day, but the mountain can't control the weather. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help. The terrain is challenging especially when it gets crusty.

Husband, son and I visited Mt. Bachelor mid January and were delighted to find so much to do without putting on a downhill ski or a snowboard! The purpose of our trip was to explore Bend and Sunriver in the winter, as we've only visited (and love it) in the summer months. We didn't bring appropriate ski clothes -- had... More

When you hear that, believe it! The snows of Bachelor equal those of Park City, UT...and they're fantastic. The facilities are superb and we really enjoy that they're located in National Forest lands...so no condos and other junk mucking up the scenery and aura. Whether snowshoeing or skiing, snowboarding or tubing, this is a center point for sports and fun... More

We enrolled our 5,5 year old in class. I told them he has been skiing at least 4x prior and skied Whistler 3 weeks prior and they still insisted he was level one.. My son was put in the same class with kids that have never even been on skis. I told them I was worried that he would not... More

Mt. Bachelor is a great mountain... but every time I have gone there is has been extremely windy. I ski all over the world, and I realize wind is a common condition near the summit of most mountains... but Bachelor takes the cake, so to speak, in the wind department. I will save my money and ski elsewhere from now... More
