Mt Bachelor Ski Resort is located just 22 miles west of downtown Bend and offers epic downhill skiing, a tubing facility, dog sled rides, and a Nordic Ski Center for cross-country, skate skiing and snowshoeing. With nearly 3,700 acres of lift-accessible terrain and the highest skiable elevation in all of Oregon and Washington, Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort boasts a wide variety of terrain. Ski or ride 360 degrees off the summit, hike the adjoining cinder cone for a thrilling run down, or ski the trees to find that great cache of powder. Ski season is one of the longest in the Northwest, usually starting in November by Thanksgiving and lasting well into May. Surrounded by the tall hemlocks and pines of the Deschutes National Forest and breathtaking views of the Three Sisters and other Cascade peaks, you are sure to enjoy that mountain experience you seek at Mt. Bachelor!
