When most people think of Bend in the winter, they often think of downhill skiing at Mt. Bachelor. However, there are plenty of great places for alternative snow sports, one of those being cross country skiing!
Trails that are taken care of through Mt. Bachelor are well known as being beautiful trail systems, great for anything beginner to expert. If you are trying to get out of the resort then you are in luck because there are plenty of choices! Parking at Skyliners Trailhead, Tumalo is a fun 2.5 miles down the closed off Northwest Forest Service road. Whether you want to start at Swampy Lakes Sno-Park and ski to a shelter, explore the cascade lakes starting from Dutchman Flats Sno-Park, or even go to sisters to explore their trails in back country, you are sure to find something fun to explore!
When you are outside exploring, please remember to play like a local, and help us protect our natural playground so that you and others can continue to enjoy these trails.
