Bend, Oregon and Mt. Bachelor Winter Trail and Road Conditions

What are the latest winter road and trail conditions in Bend? We’re here to help deliver the most up to date information from Tripcheck, Mt. Bachelor and other sources in one place. Bend’s unique climate means that the weather can behave a little differently than the rest of the state of Oregon. It can get a little colder at night because of our high-desert elevation, and the sun shines a little more because of the rain shadow caused by the cascade mountains.

Bend and Central Oregon Road and Weather Conditions and Cameras

Winter Backcountry Conditions

Bend’s location, surrounded by public lands, makes it an ideal getaway for a backcountry ski or snowboard trip, or even just a day on the snowmobile getting up close and personal with our mountains and forests. Central Oregon Avalanche Center (COAC) has a network of properly-trained avalanche and winter conditions experts and a weather station in the heart of the Central Oregon backcountry to help you decided if today is a safe day to head into our backcountry. As always, when you head into the backcountry, make sure you’re prepare for the unexpected. Always carry a beacon (and know how to use it), a shovel and an avalanche probe in addition to the remaining ten essentials. Travel with a buddy, and know what to do if things go wrong.

Mountain Bike Trail Conditions

Mountain bikes look a little different in the winter in Bend. The tires are a little fatter and the trails are generally groomed. That’s what it’s like to ride a fat (tire) bike in Bend during the winter. Bend’s fat bike trails are groomed out of Wanoga Sno-Park in the wintertime, conditions permitting, making for a truly unique biking experience. Many bike and gear shops in town rent fat tire bikes for you to take up the Cascade Lakes Highway or out to Tumalo Falls for a fun day of human-powered sightseeing.

If you’re looking for more traditional mountain biking, take a look at Redmond-area trails such as those accessible from Maston trailhead, or head east to the Horse Butte or Horse Ridge areas, where the trails are more likely to be ridable in the winter. BendTrails keeps riders updated on trail conditions, so you know that if the trails are muddy or snow-covered to stay off of them and practice proper trail etiquette. Even if the trails are snow free, it’s best to stay off of them during freeze-thaw cycles to ensure that the trails don’t develop ruts and become further eroded.
