Summer Shredding at Mt Bachelor (For Three Whole Days!)

It’s pretty damn annoying when the mountain closes and there’s still tons of snow. Such was the case this season at Mt. Bachelor, and to make it up to you, the lifts are firing up for three more days. Get your shorts, shades and sunscreen and go get it while the getting is good.

Bend, OR. (June 20, 2012) — Mt. Bachelor has announced that it will open for skiing and snowboarding Friday, June 29 through Sunday, July 1, with intermediate and advanced terrain off the summit, snow and weather conditions permitting.
