MT. BACH­E­LOR, ORE.

SKI - - RESORTS OF THE YEAR 2019 -

Mt. Bach­e­lor is a fickle place. One minute all is well, the next, wind and fog roll in, mak­ing this 9,000foot vol­cano in Ore­gon’s Cen­tral Cas­cades feel like a back­drop from

Lord of the Rings. That’s not a bad thing. Such en­vi­rons come with an­cient, twist­ing hem­lock forests and 360-de­gree ski­ing off the sum­mit. Last sea­son the re­sort opened the Cloudchaser quad, ac­cess­ing 635 added acres of blue ter­rain on the vol­cano’s south­east­ern flank—an en­tirely new ad­ven­ture for Bachlovers and new­bies alike. There’s no lodg­ing, but nearby Bend doesn’t lack for the stuff we all like, namely mi­cro­brew­eries and B&Bs.
