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!
Summer activities are also available on the mountain! Mt Bachelor Bike Park offers lift-served access to miles of exciting downhill trails, scenic chairlift rides to the Pine Marten Lodge perched at 7,800 feet for drinks or a snack at Scapolo’s, hike around, and take in the sights, join a daily Forest Service led forest talk, or enjoy dinner with epic views as you watch the sunset over the Cascades.
(OPENING IN 2020) Soar through the high alpine like never before on the Mt Bachelor Zip Line. The dual-line, three-stage tour drops 1,400 vertical feet along the volcano’s slopes to make it the Northwest’s steepest, fastest, and highest-elevation zip adventure. Ride the wind at your own pace with the zip trolley’s self-controlled braking system and race your friends on two side-by-side lines on each zip span. The multi-stage tour launches from an elevation of 7,800 feet, above the tree line at the top of Pine Marten lift and allows riders to fly over open bowls, off-piste skiable terrain and Central Oregon’s unique volcanic landscape.
