First and foremost it’s still early in the season. In fact, we just turned the clock to autumn. But one of the best terrain park crews out there has taken advantage of the early season snow and thrown up some features. That means for those who want to come up for some early ski/snowboard park action you can! We know that any time there is snow on the ground there are those who will do anything to find something to shred on. Lastly Mt Bachelor will be open for unique “snowseeing” chairlift rides Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Chairlift rides will be for foot-passengers only this weekend. Skis, snowboards and bikes will not be allowed on the chairlift.

Cost? FREE!

This is a free, walk up park for everyone to enjoy at their own risk. It’s supposed to warm up pretty quick in the region so time is fleeting to get you’re shred on. So, if you feel like getting some time on your planks get out there before it’s too late.
