BEND, OR -- Mt Bachelor Resort closed Friday due to extensive snow covering trails and mountain biking is suspended for the weekend. But, the hill will open Saturday and Sunday for what the resort is calling "Snowseeing." Visitors can take a scenic chairlift ride up to mid-mountain while it's snow covered. The Pine Marten lift will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Season ticket holders ride for free, others can purchase tickets.


Crews are also working on a few features in a designated area for tubing. The free, walk-up tubing park will be available Saturday. Mt. Bachelor's parking lot is open, but only partially plowed.


General Manager John McLeod says, "Although only temporary, the snow is exciting and a spectacular departure from our hazy, smoke filled days of late. Come up, take a chair ride, hit some jibs or even make a snowman, but most importantly enjoy your mountain this weekend." He believes the snow will melt as temperatures warm next week, and downhill trails will reopen for the final two weeks of the planned biking season.
