If your local ski area closes in early April, then head to Oregon’s Mt. Bachelor to continue getting your turns. The resort is slated to run lifts until Memorial Day Weekend, and lift ticket prices drop to make the final days of the season easier on the pocketbook.
Mt. Bachelor operates on its regular schedule with regular ticket rates through April 21, 2013. But beginning April 22, the prices of lift tickets drop. Adult lift tickets reduce to $59. Teens and seniors can buy tickets for $49 while youth and those 70 years and older can purchase lift tickets for $36.
Skiers and snowboarders planning to visit Mt. Bachelor for three days or more will benefit from purchasing the Springtacular Pass. This spring, two Charity Ski Weeks offer a chance for skiers and snowboarders to get a full day on the slopes for $25 to support local nonprofit organizations. The discount vouchers for April 8-12 and 22-26 are available through several local non-profits.
From April 22 through May 26, the resort reduces daily services. Lifts operate 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. with only Pine Marten, Skyline, and Summit operating for the duration. Northwest is scheduled to run through May 12. The shuttle also reduces hours to accommodate the shorter day.
Mt. Bachelor also has a full lineup of spring events. The Deschutes brewery concert series takes place on Saturdays, May 4-25. Brewski brings nine breweries to the resort for closing weekend, May 25-26. Pond skimming serves as the season finale on May 26.
