BEND, OR -- Mt. Bachelor’s new Cloudchaser chair lift will open Friday, assuming load-testing goes well, this week. The ski hill is planning several public events to celebrate the lift and access to 13 new runs. 


A dedication and ribbon cutting at Cloudchaser’s bottom terminal is scheduled for December 16. And, they’re holding a contest to choose the first person to ride up the lift.
Mt. Bachelor GM John McLeod says this is the largest improvement project in Bachelor history.
