To Our Friends in the Media:

Mt. Bachelor is big. In fact, measured by skiable terrain, it's one of the six biggest ski areas in the United States. But we don't get the crowds that most of the other biggies do. So there's a spacious feel to skiing and riding Mt. Bachelor you don’t find at most big mountains.

Going up? There are seven high-speed lifts. Going down? There's 3365' vertical, and huge snowfall – see the stats section for more.

Mt. Bachelor has quite a backstory – both in its natural history, and its history as a ski area. You'll learn about it below.

You'll also learn why Mt. Bachelor is a true destination despite the fact that – uniquely among America's major ski areas – it has no slopeside, lodging, no fancy base villages, no condo developments or any other sign of the high-priced foofaraw so common at major ski areas nowadays. We don't have it, we probably never will, and we're actually pretty darned proud of that – because we've got something much better.

It starts with an amazing mountain that's surrounded by some of the most spectacular National Forest in the country. Mt. Bachelor skiers enjoy a feeling of wilderness and solitude that just isn’t found anywhere else.

And we've got Central Oregon – fast growing in reputation as one of the nation's finest places to visit – and live. Our guests stay down the road a short piece, either in the wonderful Sunriver resort area, about 13 miles to the southeast, or Bend, about 19 miles northeast. Sunriver is a charming full-service resort with spacious condominiums and a wide array of services. It's surprisingly affordable, making it a popular choice for generations of families. As for Bend, well... it's on just about every list of the coolest towns on the continent. The range of lodging and dining choices is staggering. And we hope you like beer – or, at least, that you like people who like beer – because this region offers the most micro and craft breweries per capita in the States. Honestly, we've lost count.

Yes, all that makes Mt. Bachelor a bit different. But it's very, very worth it. Allow us to introduce your new ski and snowboard destination of choice: Mt. Bachelor. We'd be delighted to arrange a visit, so you can see it for yourself.

Sincerely,
