BEND, OR --For the first time ever, Mt. Bachelor will offer skiing, snowboarding and mount biking on the same day. Drew Jackson tells KBND News, "We're calling it our Board, Bike, & Brew Festival. And, it's allowing us, for the first time during this closing weekend, to combine some of the loves that many Central Oregonians have - skiing, snowboarding, and biking."
"To celebrate this pretty unique experience of skiing, snowboarding, and biking on the same day, we're going to give out free t-shirts that commemorate the event to the first 500 people who stop by our little booth at the base of the chair lift, and get a stamp for participating in each activity." Jackson says guests can do all three activities, or not, "So, anyone who comes up here and has a valid lift ticket or season pass for skiing or snowboarding is also eligible to get a free ticket for the chair lift that's going to serve mountain biking. And for those who just want to come up and bike, because maybe they don't ski or snowboard, we'll sell a $19 ticket for just biking."
The Board, Bike, and Brew Festival will also feature live concerts, a stein hoisting competition, the North American Pond Skimming Championships and a Yeti Breakfast. It kicks off Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
