Surfing on Mt Bachelor !! Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind event inspired by none other than legendary surfer and Mt. Bachelor Ambassador, Gerry Lopez – who is the event host! The Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge is a snowboard only event. It 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.
