Posted on in category Skiing & Snowboarding

Mt. Bachelor released the following statement regarding its operations yesterday. Let’s stay positive and all do our part to stay healthy and think of the whole community. This includes thinking about limiting your exposure to injury during this time and not potentially adding any burden to the health care system. Recreate with this in mind.

Operations to Resume Dependent on the Situation with COVID-19

BEND, Ore., March 20, 2020 – As a result of the unfolding events surrounding the dynamic and unprecedented COVID-19 public health crisis, Mt. Bachelor has decided to further suspend all resort operations with the plan to  resume operations, conditions permitting, as soon as the regulatory guidance allows and COVID-19 threat subsides. This decision to further suspend operations is based on the desire by Mt. Bachelor to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

“We look forward to the time when when we can reopen the mountain to ski, ride, hike, bike and play, however the current COVID-19 health crisis has  forced us to remain closed for now,” says John McLeod, president and general manager at Mt. Bachelor. “This is an extremely fluid situation, but we firmly believe in the powerful value of spending time in the mountains, so our goal is to reopen as soon as the situation improves. If there is any chance for late spring skiing and riding, Mt. Bachelor will be the place to be.”

The top priority for  Mt. Bachelor remains the health and safety of its staff, guests and local community. Guests are encouraged to reach out to the Mt. Bachelor guest services team to cancel or modify reservations if needed. Given the extenuating circumstances related to COVID-19,  Mt. Bachelor has modified its cancellation policies and Mt. Bachelor’s Central Reservations team will be available to make adjustments. Text 541-382-1709 or email with questions and changes. We anticipate a high number of requests and appreciate your patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries
