First off, the S'noJoke Mt. Bachelor ski trip is a no‐brainer for skiers who’ve purchased an IKON pass for the 2022‐23 ski season. IKON comes with seven days of skiing at Mt. Bachelor (five days with Ikon base pass). For those who aren’t buying an IKON pass this year, Mt. Bachelor is still a budget‐minded trip (see lift ticket pricing below).
Second off, Mt. Bachelor has an average 100 inches of snowfall in March, making it possibly the best time to ski there. 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.
Our lodging at the Hampton Inn and Suites 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. Another option might be to explore nearby Smith Rocks State Park (26 miles from Bend).
Rooms will be configured with two Queen beds, and come equipped with a small frig, coffeemaker and microwave. A breakfast buffet comes with your hotel reservation each morning. Sunday night features a Welcome Party at 7pm.
This is a u-drive trip. Drive time to Bend from the Seattle area is approximately 6 to 7 hours depending on road conditions. Ride sharing can be privately arranged among trip attendees, according to their preferences--check the list of registrants to find someone in your area.
Five nights lodging (arrive March 5 ‐ depart March 10) is $445 each based on double occupancy. If you want your own room (no roommate), add $403.
