Oregon’s Mt. Bachelor is already counting the inches after the first big storm of the season dropped 10" of snow in 24 hours. That snow, of course, is a signal for skiers and snowboarders to make winter lodging reservations. Where’s one of the best places to look for lodging deals near Mt. Bachelor? Sunriver Resort, and they're running two discounts: one rewards early planners and the other holiday skiers.
Sunriver Resort, located 21 miles from the ski runs at Mt. Bachelor, is running an early booking incentive. The earlier you book, the more of a discount you receive. Skiers and snowboarders booking reservations prior to Nov. 30, 2012 can get 20 percent off guest rooms in the Sunriver Lodge Village. For those waiting to book between Dec. 1-22, the discount drops to 15 percent off.
Guest rooms at Sunriver Resort are located in the Lodge Village. The rooms come with gas fireplaces, wireless Internet and in-room movies. The discounts are for overnight bookings between Nov. 15, 2012 and Mar. 15, 2013 with the exception of the Christmas holidays, Dec. 21-31. Mt. Bachelor's tentative opening day is scheduled for Nov. 21.
This winter, Sunriver Resort visitors also get free access to the new SHARC, the Sunriver Homeowners Association Recreation Center. The complex has recreation facilities and a pool complex with indoor facilities for winter. At the end of the ski day, families will find pools for waterplay, laps, and even a bubble pool for kids.
The holidays add more festivity to Sunriver Resort. The resort’s annual Traditions Celebration occurs from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day with more than 150 family events. Special feasts highlight the holidays on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, and the Grand Illumination light display kicks off the season of sleigh rides, breakfasts with Santa, and Elf Tuck Ins.
Skiers can get 50 percent off multi-day lift tickets for Mt. Bachelor and discounted room rates in the holidays leading up to Christmas, Nov. 26-Dec. 20, 2012. Discounted rooms and the discounted multi-day lift tickets are also available Jan. 6-11, 2013.
The two discounts at Sunriver Resort cannot be combined. Reservations can be made online here. Or you can make them by calling 800-801-8765.
