Do you love spring skiing? If the very thought conjures up images of crystal blue skies, sunshine, and t-shirts, then you’re in luck. It’s not too late to fit one more ride down the glistening mountain slopes on Mt. Bachelor before the season ends.
Many resorts close on or before Easter in April, however, Bachelor enjoys one of the longest ski seasons in North America. Mid-mountain snowfall on Bachelor is at 438-inches since October, that promises to stick around well into late May, so skiers and snowboarders will find plenty of spring skiing and other outdoor activities throughout early spring in Sunriver.
