Mount Bachelor

Mt Bachelor

Mount Bachelor is the 5th largest ski area in the U.S.  It is a year-round destination for fun and amazing views.

For Snow lovers, stellar skiing from November through May is among the longest ski seasons in the country.
Once the snow melts a little, Mt. Bachelor turns into a downhill mountain bike Mecca with miles of adrenaline-pumping trails.
In summer, Mt. Bachelor is meant for sunset dinners at nearly 9,000 feet – where the meals and views are equally as spectacular.
