Bachelor To Extend Season (Again)

Faced with a robust later winter snowfall, Mt Bachelor officials announced that they will extend the ski season to May 29, adding roughly two weeks to the end of the ski season. It's the second straight year that Bachelor has opted to push back its closing date, allowing locals and visitors to take advantage of what could be very good spring skiing conditions. The mountain has already received 430 inches of snow this year, and despite a mid-Feb melt-off is still boasting a 138-inch base at mid-mountain.

Bachelor also announced that it would again be offering a discount Spring Pass for those who want to aggressively carve through Memorial Day. The pass is on sale now and is available through April 4. The pass includes a new offer for parents who can get a free "kids pass" (good for anyone under 18) if they purchase before April 4.

There are more discounted riding and skiing opportunities, as well. Mt Bachelor will hold its next Charity Ski weeks in early April (first two weeks) with $25 midweek lift tickets and all proceeds to charity.

Bachelor will continue to operate its full contingent of lifts until April 24 at which point it will move to Spring operations with three high-speed chairs servicing the mountain.

Bachelor will also be featuring a range of parties, music and other entertainment through the spring season, including its Pine Parties, big air competitions and the year-end Pond Skimming pool, which - God willing - won't drain this year in the middle of the event.
