Get ready to hit the slopes with a winter getaway to Central Oregon. Breathtaking scenery, steady snowfall, and the longest ski season in Oregon await you! 

Mt. Bachelor Ski Area & Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort 

Located just 22 miles from Bend, Mt. Bachelor boasts more than 4,300 acres of lift-accessible terrain and the highest skiable elevation in Oregon and Washington. The mountain is easy to reach, dumps an average of 462 inches of snowfall each year, and has one of the longest ski seasons in North America – November through May!  

The slopes of Mt. Bachelor boast some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Oregon – whether you are a beginner or an expert. Experts will enjoy a variety of steep runs and challenging terrain parks, while beginners can gain confidence on their gentle downhill slope. Lessons are always available, and ski and snowboard rentals are available. 

Not into shredding downhill? Weave through Mt. Bachelor’s 56 km of groomed Nordic trails that weave through the Deschutes National Forest, including easy loops for beginners, and double diamonds with 600-foot elevation gains for experts.  

Traveling with your favorite furry family member? Explore the dog-friendly groomed trails at Wanoga Sno-park. Dogs are also allowed on the ungroomed trails at Skyliner, Edison and Kapka Butte Sno-Parks
