Big Wave is back again! Every year Mt. Bachelor holds this one-of-a-kind event inspired by the event’s host — legendary surfer and Mt. Bachelor Ambassador, Gerry Lopez.
This snowboard-only event features a series of huge sweeping banked corners, quarter pipes, and spines, incorporating the natural terrain as much as possible, to create wave-like features into a flowing course – this year located off Midway. The idea of the Mt. Bachelor Big Wave Challenge is to bring the surf to the mountain.
Practice will be held on Friday, April 12th, and the competition will be held on either Saturday, April 13th or Sunday, April 14th based on the best weather day — similar to a real surf competition. Check out the website for full schedule.
