P-tex and wax the gear at home, throw some duct tape where it’s needed, bag a lunch, and save money by finding this year’s unforgettable lines at resorts that don’t fleece you for every nickel.
Mt. Bachelor, OR
New for this year, Bachelor has introduced sliding-scale ticket pricing. That means skiers pay for what they get instead of a flat ticket price.
Lift tickets go for $49, $59, or $69 depending on overall conditions: open terrain, lifts running, visibility, wind, and non-snow precipitation. Too many negative check marks and skiers pay just 49 bucks. (Slide-scale pricing not valid during holiday periods.)
Tack that onto the 3,683 acres of terrain and 3,365 feet of vert Bachelor always offers and a trip to Oregon is a no-brainer. Drop in this season before the pencil pushers think better and roll back the sliding scale.
