Central Oregon has a dry climate, plentiful sunshine and excellent weather conditions for sunny days on the mountain. Mt. Bachelor is the largest resort in the area – outstripping every other resort by 1,000 acres. It usually opens in November around Thanksgiving and runs through May, making it one of the longest ski seasons in the country. With already a fair amount of snow, the runs are bolstered by snowmaking.

Central Oregon, the town of Bend and Mt. Bachelor ski area are excellent options for summer recreation and bike riding in particular. Bachelor’s mountain bike park is a popular option for village visitors after the ski area’s winter closing date. Mt. Bachelor lodging options are based out of Bend and Sunriver, and many of the properties offer transportation via the Mt. Bachelor Shuttle.
