You will not find better skiing and other winter sports anywhere else in all of the Pacific Northwest than you can just outside of Bend, Oregon. The area continues to be a prime destination for all winter activities year after year. If you are planning for your first skiing excursion to Bend, you may be looking for a little help. Luckily, a skiing trip to Bend can be enjoyed even during a short weekend. Here is how to spend your Bend Oregon skiing journey:
What started as a 15,000-year-old dormant volcano has now become the prime destination for skiing in all of Oregon. Mt. Bachelor offers over 4,300 feet of skiing terrain that can easily be accessed from their easy to navigate lifts. You will find a variety of trails, from beginner “bunny slopes” to the treacherous black diamond slopes. If you are new to skiing or snowboarding, make sure to take advantage of the beginner’s lift that will take you to a gradual slope where you can practice. Mt. Bachelor is only 22 miles from Bend, making for an easy drive from your vacation rental. Plan online at www.mtbachelor.com. Bend Skiing has something for everyone!
Hoodoo Ski Area
Now that you have traversed the popular Mt. Bachelor, it is time to make your way a bit further from Bend to the less-trafficked Hoodoo Ski Area. Just because it is further away from the city does not mean you will not find incredible skiing conditions, though. At Hoodoo Ski Area, you will find over 800 acres of terrain, including five lifts to take you up the slopes. The backside of the area provides veterans with the challenging powder they expect to find on the toughest of slopes, while the front side is more beginner-friendly. If these slopes do not continue to bring you back, then the night skiing only found at Hoodoo Ski Area just might! Plan your visit at www.skihoodoo.com.
