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

Since 1958 when the first rope tow took avid skiers up the mountain, Mt Bachelor has grown to be one of the largest ski resorts in the U.S. You can ski or ride 360 degrees off the summit, hike the short distance to the adjoining cinder cone for an epic powder run down, or enjoy the abundance of tree skiing and riding, some of the best in North America.

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 in Bend, self-styled as "Beer City USA". The town has the highest micro-brewery per capita in the nation, with 22 breweries offering a selection of highly quaffable beers ranging from pale ales to dark porters. Despite being a town, rather than a resort, Bend does not disappoint with the après-ski, the famous Deschutes Brewery offering the liveliest scene with the tastiest beers. Downtown Bend is very attractive with plenty of cafés and restaurants and a pleasant, laid-back vibe.

Sunriver is a resort community in 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 base.

"Bachelor is a unique mountain - 360 degrees of skiing with tonnes of light, dry snow and huge views. With a famously long season, this is a great option for a spring Ski Safari when you can enjoy both snow and sunshine."
