The ski area is on the northern side of Mount Bachelor, a stratovolcano rising atop a volcanic shield in the Cascade Range. It is the largest ski resort (by area) by more than 1,000 acres in Oregon, the second largest single-mountain ski resort in the U.S., behind Vail, and the sixth largest of all ski resorts in the nation. Mount Bachelor offers one of the nation's longest ski seasons, mid-November through the end of May (weather permitting).
