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.

Friendly staff on the mountain. Well organised.

We stayed at the Oxford Hotel in Bent. Excellent hotel. Fantastic location.

Pre-booked our lift passes and when we collected them, we got a VIP welcome from the Resort Director who had arranged for us to ski with one of his Ski Ambassadors to show us the area. This was a very nice touch on the part of the resort who seemed very keen to impress us as guests of Ski Safari. The resort has varied terrain with some of the best tree skiing we've come across. We were lucky with amazing powder conditions. Lift to summit was only open one of our three days - locals commented that it often closes due to high wind

After a week of snowstorms dumping up to 150cm in places, many North American resorts are above the 10 metre line for the season, setting the scene for an epic end of season. Words alone don't do it justice, here are the best...
