I love Bachelor. I've been snowboarding since 1986 and have ridden at many, many resorts all over North America. I must begin by stating that my favorite mountain is Mt. Baker Washington as if you know the routes and the ways not to kill yourself out of bounds than it is definitely one of the most challenging and fun mountains in the US. Mt. Bachelor is relatively flat compared to Whistler and Baker but when it gets just a little bit of snow (7 inches or more) the trees of Outback and NW are the best anywhere. Perfectly spaced trees and wind that provides free refills between runs make Mt. Bachelor so much fun. Moreover, there are little hits everywhere and some really great cornices to launch off here and there. When it's not snowing show up early and get 30k vertical plus massive eurocarves on choice blue groomers. Love it Yes the top lift closes a lot but they do so for a reason as there are many days when 100 mph gusts will come through. Do you want to be on the chair when that happens? I don't. Additionally, Bend is just about as cool of a town as anywhere. I don't understand the hate for Mt. Bachelor. Yeah it's not Whistler but also doesn't have the crowds, the expense and has much better tree skiing.
