Big Wave Challenge

Fri, Apr 13 - Sun, Apr 15

Location: Events Arena

Mt. Bachelor holds this one-of-a-kind event inspired by none other than legendary surfer and Mt. Bachelor Ambassador, Gerry Lopez - who is our event host!

This snowboard only event features a series of huge sweeping banked corners, quarter pipes and spines, incorporating the natural terrain as much as possible, to create wave-like features into a flowing course - this year located off Midway. The idea of the Mt. Bachelor Big Wave Challenge is to bring the surf to the mountain.
