As the highest land mass for miles around, the views from atop Mt. Bachelor are equally breathtaking. Mt. Bachelor is part of the infamous Cascade Volcano chain, which runs from Canada into the Pacific Northwest.  Ecology and geology enthusiasts will love learning about the science behind Mt. Bachelor’s formation, just as much as they’ll enjoy skiing or riding the resort’s unusual terrain.

With the town of Bend and it's many inns, hotels, boutiques, shops and restaurants a short 22 miles away, a Mt. Bachelor ski vacation meets a wide variety of lodging and budget preferences. Whether you stay in Bend or not, an afternoon or evening in this quaint town is in order, and on the top of your don’t-miss list should be a beer at the famed Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House. For those looking to explore the local forests and get their lungs pumping, Mt. Bachelor offers an exceptional cross country trail system

If what you seek on a ski vacation includes incredible scenery, great snow, tons of distinct terrain and tons of vertical feet, good local beer and a down-to-earth town to explore, then a Mt. Bachelor ski vacation is what you’ll find.

Bachelor powder day is unforgettable.


Advanced and expert skiers can experience 60percent of Mt. Bachelor’s terrain, including the 360-degree skiing from resort’s 9,065-foot summit. Experts Intermediate will have a ball meandering around Mt. Bachelor’s many groomed, halfpipe-like trails. Intermediate skiers have a plethora of blue runs off of the top of 9,000-foot Summit Chair.
