- Portlanders don't much care for the long drive to Mt. Bachelor, but it's all worth it once you get here. With four lodges, 11 lifts, a vertical drop of 3,400 feet and the whole mountain to ski on, it's big. The 56 kilometers of cross-country skiing are also a welcome sight and the home course for many nationally ranked cross-country racers. With a summit at 9,000 feet, there's room for everything. Rent a snowboard for $28 or strap on skis in June. Bachelor is also a summer resort with a number of things to do. Lift tickets for the ski season (November through June) are $43 for adults and $22 for children 7-12. Children 7 and under are free.
