Mount Bachelor is one of the rare big mountains completely surrounded by U.S. Forest Service land that precludes hotels at its base area. Most hotels congregate in Bend, 21 miles from the resort. But Seventh Mountain Resort, which offers a ski package, provides the closest lodging to the ski area.

The newly remodeled Seventh Mountain Resort is 14 miles from the ski area. It offers a variety of lodging options from studios and one-bedroom condos to four-bedroom luxury townhouses. On site amenities include restaurants, a lounge, heated outdoor pools, hot tubs, saunas, and an ice skating rink.

Seventh Mountain's Great Ski Getaway Package, available through April 15, starts at $87 per person per night based on double occupancy. A minimum of three nights' lodging is required, and the package include two three-day adult lift tickets. Kids 18 years old and younger can ski free.

A complimentary Saturday, Sunday, and holiday shuttle service is available between Seventh Mountain Resort and Mount Bachelor. A 10-minute drive puts you in downtown Bend to explore restaurants and nightlife.

Most units include kitchenettes, fireplaces, and a patio or balcony. All units include cable/satellite television, DVD players, and free wireless Internet. Massages and in-room childcare are available.

Reservations can be made online or by phone.
