June Powder at Mt Bachelor?

Winter ain’t over until it’s over. Mt. Bachelor, Ore., announced that it will open for skiing and snowboarding June 29 through July 1, with intermediate and advanced terrain off the summit, snow and weather conditions permitting.

The first 250 snow-seeking guests purchasing lift tickets each day will receive a commemorative t-shirt.

Mt. Bachelor is one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest ski areas. Only 20 minutes form Bend and Sunriver, Mt. Bachelor, a 9,065-foot volcanic cone, offers world class skiing and snowboarding from November through May. Famous for its deep, dry powder, the mountain annually plays host to Olympic hopefuls and international competitions, as well as families looking for winter fun. With 3,683 acres of terrain served by a network of ten lifts, seven of which are high speed quads, there’s room for every interest and ability.
