Bringing the Backcountry to the Big City

Making turns at Hoodoo Ski Resort near Sisters, Oregon

Every Central Oregon resident who has strapped on a snowboard or stepped into some skis at Mt. Bachelor realizes how lucky we are to have a world-class ski area so close to home.

Bend resident Tim Neville, world class in his own right as a freelance travel writer for several publications, realizes that too. He deftly writes about Mt. Bachelor and other Central Oregon backcountry adventures in exhilarating detail for this New York Times piece:  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/16/travel/skiing-in-my-own-backyard.html
