We’ve been buzzing with excitement in Central Oregon since Mt. Bachelor announced the addition of the new Cloudchaser lift. Cloudchaser, a high-speed detachable quad chairlift, will provide greater protection from the elements during storms and add 635 acres to the lift-served terrain at Mt. Bachelor. With the addition of Cloudchaser, this makes Mt. Bachelor the 5th largest ski area in the United States. Cloudchaser and more terrain provide one more excellent reason to book a Sunriver ski vacation with Village Properties at Sunriver.
Crews have been busy installing the new chairlift at Mt. Bachelor. Cloudchaser is slated to open in mid-December for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy.
- Cloudchaser is the first new lift at Mt. Bachelor to add previously unserved terrain since the addition of Northwest Express in 1996
- The last new chairlift installed at Mt. Bachelor was the replacement of Pine Marten Express in 2006
- Cloudchaser adds 635 acres of skiable terrain and 6.2 miles of groomed runs, making Mt. Bachelor the 5th largest ski area in the US
The addition of Cloudchase could ease long lift lines during the busy ski season, which all visitors to the mountain will be grateful for. When planning your Sunriver ski vacation, this is definitely something to keep in mind! Shorter lift lines and more accessible terrain on the east side of the mountain add up to a great winter at Mt. Bachelor. Now, all we need to do is pray for snow!
