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

this was our first outing to Mt Bachelor and we hadn't expected such a great experience. first day we arrived in early afternoon and decided to take advantage of Forest Service snowshoeing outing since too late to start skiing, they offer this free outing, including snowshoes on weekends and school holidays. next day rented skis, poles, helmets, and set out...

The runs were well groomed and had great snow coverage - much better than a lot of other areas in the West! The Ambassadors are great - very friendly and happy to tour the mountain with you. I highly recommend asking for an Ambassador tour if you are new to the area. I took a lesson and in two short... More

Unfortunately, climate change reared its ugly head. Saturday Jan 17 we had planned to ski, but found warm torrential rain. Sunday, the weather was kinder, and we did ski, but the trails were slicker than usual which limited our experience. two years ago, we had an excellent XC experience there.

Love the Mountain, great snow, great ski shop with lockers, repair, waxing etc. Great during the week days, not crowded. Was there on Valentine's day '14 on a Sunday, way to crowded, I will avoid that day next trip. Excellent spicy Bloody Mary drinks at the mountain yurt bars and great chili as well. We will be back this Feb... More

I skied on a Friday, and there were no crowds and no wait in line. I skied non-stop for two hours. I love the runs and the huge number of lifts. The food in the lodge is great also. The lift staff and the cafeteria staff were all very friendly.

Mt. Bachelor is one of the best ski experiences! I've skied nearly every mountain in Colorado and Utah over the years and love Mt. Bachelor. The runs are excellent and they have a long season. Rarely do you wait in line so you can ski and/or board all day! They offer great jumps and fun for those braver ones....and have... More

First time to Bachelor. What a pretty place. Our oldest wasn't able to ski due to achilles so we all opted to slide down the inner tube course. It was BITTERLY cold up there. Wind was blowing something awful and the employees were even complaining about how awful the cold was. The inner tube course was NOT what I thought... More

Spent 3 days at Mt Batchelor and loved it so much extended for a fourth day. Kids were in ski school for 3 days and it was almost impossible to pull them off the slopes. Look forward to returning.
