Mount Bachelor seeks approval for ski improvements

 

BEND — Mount Bachelor is asking the Deschutes National Forest for permits to improve the ski area west of Bend in time for the next ski season.

The Bend Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/1HHe3gg ) that the list of improvements is comprised of five small projects. The projects involve widening a corner of the West Village Getback and widening the Beginner's Luck and First Time Around Nordic trails. Mount Bachelor is also asking to grade and reduce grades of some slopes, and install a storage building for avalanche reduction explosives.

The ski area leases land on Mount Bachelor from the Deschutes National Forest, so it must get permission before making improvements or other changes.

Mount Bachelor continues to develop a downhill bike bark and may construct a zip line and climbing wall in coming years.
