Mt. Bachelor — Snowboarding, Parks and pipes
Mt. Bachelor has an excellent and extensive program for snowboarders at all levels, including the High Cascade Snowboard Camps for women, adults-only and students on Spring Break.
Most freeriding takes place in the Outback, which is loaded with trees and fall-line runs. For your final run in the Outback, try to take the Outback Express back up to Pine Marten Lodge. If you take the Northwest Express Quad up, you have to traverse the Northwest Crossover, and it’s a bit flat. The new Summit Express gets you to the Peak of Mt. Bachelor, well above treeline. There are some good steeps in The Cirque. Everything else up there to the left of the Express is gentle terrain.
Parks and pipes
The resort has a superpipe built to Olympic specifications, 400 feet long with 17-foot walls. You’ll find it next to the Pine Marten lift. A superpipe cutter keeps it in tip-top shape. On the other side of the Pine Marten Express is the Mt. Bachelor Events Arena. There are also four terrain parks.
