Located on the eastern flanks of the Cascade Mountains in central Oregon, Mt Bachelor's 9,000 ft volcanic cone stands proud above the surrounding wilderness - a beautiful sight.

There are the usual base area facilities, but as the mountain is within the Deschutes National Forest, there is no accommodation at the ski area. You stay in the funky town of Bend, or at Sunriver Resort a little further south, both are approximately 20 minutes drive from the hill.

Beer is a big feature of Bend being the self styled "Beer capitol of the US"! There are quite a few micro-breweries with a selection of highly quaffable ales ranging from the light to the very dark. Despite being a town, rather than a resort, Bend does not disappoint with the apres-ski, the famous Dechutes Brewery offering the liveliest scene with the tastiest beers. Downtown Bend is very attractive with plenty of cafes and restaurants and a nice, laid-back vibe.

Sunriver is a resort community with a rural setting about 10 or 15 minutes drive south of Bend. It has a golf course (opens in spring), spa complex, pools, restaurant and a few shops. It's a good place to stay if you are travelling with family or looking for a relaxing chilled-out option.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Mt. Bachelor A very friendly resort, very quiet with rarely any lift lines. We were lucky to have had some good fresh snow and the new lifts added to the standard of the hill. The food options and facilities on the hill were all good. Parking was free, ample and close by.
