Mt. Bachelor, Oregon
March 16 through 23, 2019
Join us for a trip to the Cascade Mountains of Central Oregon for a week at the Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort near Bend Oregon. It is also close to Crater Lake, a “stratovolcano” which erupted about 6,850 years ago. It collapsed to produce Crater Lake, one of the world’s best-known calderas and a beautiful lake. Don’t be concerned about snow on this trip – the area has an average snowfall of 370 inches and has 100 percent snowmaking capacity! Our home there will be the Doubletree Hotel in Downtown Bend. You literally walk out of the back door of the hotel and into the heart of the town of Bend.
You will also receive a five-day lift ticket. You can purchase a six-day ticket for an additional $32.00 which has to be paid prior to departure. Mt. Bachelor offers you a wide variety of skiing opportunities. With it 71 trails, vertical drop of 3,365 feet and 13 lifts, you can easily find something to your level of ability. As of this writing, we are working on getting air for you. We are finding that you can book a flight into Redmond, Oregon (and avoid a bus ride from Portland) very inexpensively online a great deal cheaper than we can get as a group. So, your cost below does not include airfare.
Walking, shopping or dining in historic downtown Bend will enhance your vacation experience. Drake Park’s Mirror Pond, the jewel of downtown Bend, is a small lake with ducks, Canadian geese, and a pair of swans from Queen Elizabeth’s royal swannery in England. Downtown Bend is filled with Galleries, restaurants, outdoor eateries, boutiques and specialty shops are all within easy walking distance. Farther from the downtown area, the Old Mill District, located on a site previously used for lumber mills, features upscale shopping, trendy restaurants and an outdoor amphitheater which is used for summer concerts. Bend is also the home of the Deschutes Brewery and that is worth a visit!
