Mt. Bachelor, the crown jewel of Central Oregon's winter sports mecca, is one of the top 10 largest ski areas in the United States. Open for skiing and snowboarding from November through May, the 9,065-foot dormant volcano has the highest skiable elevation in all of Oregon and Washington and offers over 4,300 acres of terrain. More enticing than the 360 degrees of skiing from the top of the Summit lift is the annual average of 462 inches of snow every winter. And with that much snow, ski days at Mt. Bachelor are always within reach given the dependability of a Subaru. Located 22 miles from the town of Bend, regardless of the weather report, you'll be able to blast through winter's squalls in a Subaru to take advantage of the freshly fallen snow on the slopes.
