Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

The Ikon pass includes Crystal Mountain in Washington, Copper Mountain and Winter Park in Colorado, Squaw Valley and Mammoth Mountain in California, Alta and Snowbird in Utah and many more, on numerous continents. Now, it also includes both Mt. Bachelor, as well as Windham Mountain in New York.
The new partnership, announced Tuesday, also means that those who buy into Mt. Bachelor's monthly subscription-style pass, Outplay 365—which includes access to Alpine and Nordic winter sports as well as the zipline and the mountain bike park—also get an Ikon Base Pass. The Ikon Base Pass includes five days at at least 14 different resorts.

ping the resorts closed—but for that, Mt. Bachelor has also announced new refund options for future purchases. In addition, it announced yesterday that season and multi-day passes would not go up in price for the 2020/21 season. Mt. Bachelor earlier announced vouchers for season and multi-day passholders, covering a small portion of the original price.



"As we look forward to when we are able to be out adventuring again, we are excited to introduce more guests to Mt. Bachelor’s year-round adventure at the heart of Bend, Oregon culture as the newest Ikon Pass destination," wrote John McLeod, president and general manager of Mt. Bachelor in a release Tuesday.
