Mt. Bachelor has great terrain variety. Gentle greens to rolling blues to steep and fast blacks. Our whole family enjoys something. I personally love the steeps and long runs on Northwest. My wife is a blues cruzer under Pine Martin and my kids are all about the parks.
We spent the week after New Years there and my kids progressed so much riding the park. They want to spend a week each month there.
Now the bummer is the it is 13 miles from the nearest lodging though we stayed in town at Mt. Bachelor Village which is a very nice place. Then to add to that I saw lift ticket prices for the weekends is a huge jump.
