About Mt. Bachelor
Mt. Bachelor is one of the great legends of the Northwest. A towering 9,065-foot solo giant that has achieved an almost mythic reputation among purists for the transcendent quality of its snow -- a light, dry, high-desert powder unlike any other in this part of the world. Three hundred pristine inches a year dust 70 runs well-distributed across 360 degrees of this extinct volcano. Shred? After a day of slalom and giant slalom, half-pipe and free riding, many snowboarders proclaim Mt. Bachelor their favorite haunt. If you'd like to try a board, there are complete packages including lessons and equipment rental. Go ahead -- stick it to the whole mountain. Because Mt. Bachelor is in the heart of virgin wilderness, with no development off the slopes for miles in all directions, you will find the cross-country skiing to be especially exquisite, and unbelievably convenient.
