Mt. Bachelor -- CANCELED

Due to Oregon state regulations this trip has been cancelled.  Registrants will soon be notified about refund details.

Mt. Bachelor, less than a half hour’s drive from Bend, OR, where we’ll be staying, provides ski runs for all levels of skier and snowboarder. The resort is the 6th largest ski resort in North America with over 4,000 skiable acres, 3,365 feet of vertical drop, and 101 runs to explore. The highest of the lifts unloads at the very crater of the Mt. Bachelor volcano. There are three base and mid-mountain lodges for food and beverage. And holders of the Ikon pass get five days free skiing at Mt. Bachelor. There are also 56 km of Cross Country and Nordic skiing, including easy loops for beginners, and double diamonds with 600 foot elevation gains for experts. The Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center is located across the parking lot from the Main Ski Lodge. They offer rentals, snack foods and shopping for ski related items.


Our lodging at the Hampton Inn and Suites is located in Bend’s historic Old Mill District, right next to the Deschutes River. It has a variety of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Downtown Bend which is only about 1 mile from Old Mill, also sports an unbelievable number of brewpubs, tap rooms and shops for browsing. Because of the COVID-19 situation, we will be selling rooms for single occupancy, though on request we can provide rooms for double occupancy. Rooms will either be configured with one King bed or two Queen beds, and comes equipped with a small frig, coffeemaker and microwave. A Breakfast Box comes with your hotel reservation each morning.  If covid regs permit, we'll have a daily hot breakfast.

At this time we are not planning a group dinner, but those plans could change depending on the COVID-19 situation. If the Bachelor Resort closes down due to COVID-19, your trip fee refunded other than minor fees.

This is a drive-to trip. The drive time to Bend from the Seattle area is approximately 6 to 7 hours depending on road conditions. Carpools would be privately arranged among the trip attendees, according to their preferences.

Your trip leader is Craig Johnston, and co-leader is Katy Myers Bishop.

Standard cancellation rules apply, but...if one person in a shared room cancels either of those needs to find the new roommate.  The club will not assign people to fill spots.  Travel insurance is recommended.  Read the covers only what it says it covers.
