2019 EPSC Winter Carnival at Mt. Bachelor
Here we go! The EPSC Winter Carnival is headed to central Oregon and Mt. Bachelor in 2019!
The resort was in competition with the Big Sky trip for 2016 and it might be good that we held off. This season Mt. Bachelor has installed the new "Cloudchaser" high-speed quad opening up 600 plus acres of intermediate terrain and single Black tree skiing. This new addition places Mt. Bachelor in the TOP FIVE largest ski resorts in the U.S.! With it's location and elevation, Mother Nature blesses the resort with LOTS of snow! Already they have received 61 inches of snow for this season and their opening day (Nov. 25th) was a powder day. We'll stay in the friendly town of Bend with it's many brewery pubs, quaint downtown and extraordinary shopping. If you plan a non-ski day for your club, there is an informative High Desert Nature Center next to Bend, go deep underground into the Lava Tube caves and, off to the South, you can snowshoe to the edge of the breath-taking Crater Lake.
It will have been many years since some of our clubs have been to Mt. Bachelor. We are looking forward to having returning clubs (they know how much fun Bend and the resort are!) and those who have looked at the resort, but have yet to go, sign on for this trip. How unique can a ski trip get? Not very often you get to ski a volcano and all 360 degrees of it, too! Dave and I are hoping you'll add this to your 2018-19 trip list. We'll have more details for you in the near future.
