Mt. Bachelor Winter Pass Deals Offer Affordable Skiing Through May!

Mt. Bachelor’s annual winter pass sale means you can buy discounted passes through September – passes you can use throughout the ski area’s roughly SIX-MONTH season.

How does 360-degrees of dry, Pacific Northwest powder sound? With more than 100 runs and 4,200 skiable acres, Mt. Bachelor is the 6th largest ski area in the U.S. It’s a unique resort – located on a volcano in the Deschutes National Forest.

Mt. Bachelor typically is open by Thanksgiving and the season runs through Memorial Day weekend and bluebird days are the norm, not the exception. You’ll find more than 100 runs covering more than 4,000 acres, but without the commercial buildup on the mountain – there are no hotels or lodging at the ski area – it offers the kind of laid-back vibe that harkens back to the old-school ski area days.

This year the mountain will be celebrating its 60th birthday with fun events and activities throughout the season.

Winter Pass Sale Prices:

Full Pass: $959
Mid-week: $659
12-day: $609
4-day: $249

These prices are only valid through September 30th. After that, they increase slightly but are still a bargain compared to the daily lift ticket prices at some resorts in Colorado and Utah.

Central Oregon is the perfect place not just for a ski trip, but for a full-fledged family winter vacation. Non-skiers can take free guided snowshoe tours at Mt. Bachelor, venture deep into the woods on a sled dog ride or rush down the mountain on an innertube. You can enjoy some ice skating at several rinks throughout the region, including the new Pavilion in the heart of Bend or rent a snowmobile for some high-speed fun.

You can go mountain biking, hiking and even golfing at one of our courses open year-round.

You’ll find affordable, family-friendly lodging at one of our destination resorts. Sunriver, Pronghorn, Black Butte Ranch and Tetherow. They all offer something a little different but provide families plenty of dining and recreational options including sleigh rides, Nordic skiing and sledding.
