More Than 500 Acres of New Terrain is Now Open!

With USFS approval of Mt. Bachelor’s 10 year Master Development Plan in 2013, work is underway on Mt. Bachelor’s first new trail pod since 1996. A new, lower east catchline has already been constructed and trees have been felled for the new lift line and several trails in the pod.

While the lift installation is still at least a year away, you can now ski or ride much of the new terrain down to the New Low East Catchline! That’s more than 500 acres of new glades, bowls and natural features. While generally intermediate in pitch, we will be restricting this area to experts only this season since the terrain will be mostly ungroomed and 100% natural.

A 20-25 minute hike-out to the Sunrise base is necessary from the future lift's bottom terminal location.

Lift & Trail Stats

With nearly 3,700 acres of lift-accessible terrain, you won’t want to pass up a trip to the ski resort with the highest skiable elevation in all of Oregon and Washington! Mt. Bachelor, located on the eastern flanks of Oregon’s Central Cascades, is known for its light, dry snow, diverse terrain, family-friendliness and long seasons.

Bill Healy founded Mt. Bachelor Ski Area December 19, 1958 with a rope tow and a single lift. Mt. Bachelor has since grown to be one of the largest ski resorts in the U.S. The resort boasts a wide variety of terrain. Guests can 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!

Not only is Mt. Bachelor a great place for expert skiers and riders to get that burn, it is also a fantastic place to learn a snow sport or take the family for an exciting day out. Carrousel, our free beginners lift, offers an easy ride up and gentle slope down. There are also numerous lesson packages to choose from; check out our link to snow sport services.

Conveniently located just 22 miles west of Bend, Mt. Bachelor’s 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!
