Take laps on our newest trails off of Cloudchaser for your chance to score a Cordura backpack from our friends at Under Armour! Backpacks will be stuffed with UA swag in a scavenger hunt in the new Cloudchaser Terrain. Follow us on Facebook for various clues throughout the day, and if you find a pack make sure to post it on Facebook or Instagram and tag @Mtbachelor and @UnderArmour so we can share your stoke!
Cloudchaser is scheduled to open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday along with other scheduled lifts.
10 Barrel will be pouring their newest beer, Cloudchaser IPA and local band, Company Grand will be rocking the stage all night! We will be providing a free shuttle from the Mt. Bachelor Park n Ride to the Old Mill District due to limited parking at the Old Mill.
Together, Mt. Bachelor and Powdr Corp are excited to announce that we have signed a contract with lift manufacturer Doppelmayer to install the new east side chairlift, named Cloudchaser, in time for the 2016 holiday season! The high-speed detachable quad chairlift, which represents a capital investment of approximately $6 million, provides greater protection from the elements during storm cycles and adds 635 acres to our lift served terrain.
This is an exciting milestone for the entire team here at Mt. Bachelor, our loyal pass holders, and all guests of the mountain. Powdr's investment in this lift underscores a commitment to Mt. Bachelor and provides a whole new way for us all to experience our favorite mountain.
When complete, the new Cloudchaser detachable quad chairlift will be the first new chairlift installed at Mt. Bachelor since the replacement of Pine Marten Express in 2006, and the first completely new chairlift providing access to previously unserved terrain on the mountain since the opening of Northwest Express in 1996.
The name Cloudchaser was conceived by Tom Lomax, Mt. Bachelor’s Director of Mountain Operations. It pays tribute to the mountain’s unique weather patterns and the phenomenon whereby approaching clouds from the west tend to dissipate and disappear altogether as they wrap around the summit and pass to Mt. Bachelor’s east side.
