Beginning with Mt. Bachelor Ski Area, beginners and advanced skiers and snowboarders can enjoy a variety of tables, step ups and downs, rails, and more during their trip. Not to mention, Mt. Bachelor is also the site of the 2006 Winter Olympic Qualifiers, in which competitors used the Olympic-sized Superpipe. If you're looking for the ride of your life, you've definitely come to the right place.
In addition, cross-country skiers can enjoy an extended ski season in Bend, beginning as early as mid-October. Hit one of the many cross-country trails on Mt. Bachelor, Virginia Meissner Sno-park, and Swampy Lakes Sno-park. There's even room for your furry pooch on the trail, as Wanoga Sno-park offers a 3.5 km groomed trail for dogs.
And of course, you can't forget the snow shoeing, snow mobiling, and snow tubing. While visitors will surely get a rush from each, the incredible views of the Oregon countryside along the way add priceless memories to any trip. Plus, you and your loved ones will enjoy racing along the trails at places like Newberry Crater National Monument and Mt. Bachelor.
After that, you and that special someone can slip on a pair of skates and hit the ice or cozy up on a romantic carriage ride. Either way, your sweetie will appreciate the seasonal fun you added to your Bend winter vacation.
