No, I did not just coin the phrase “Springtacular”. All the credit for that goes to the Mt. Bachelor marketing department. They’re offering a steal of a spring pass for $149. It’s good from April 4th to the end of the season — which happens to be May 29th! Looks like we might have to move to Oregon. Unlike Colorado and California they welcome RV dirtbaggers with open arms.
There’s also a charity week from April 4-8 and 11-15, 2011. It sounds a little confusing. I’ll let the site explain:
Mt. Bachelor provides an allotment of $25 ski vouchers to five area non-profits that are valid for 10 days in January or April. The non-profits then distribute those vouchers throughout the community and when people use them to ski for $25, all of the funds goes back to the distributing charity.
Mt. Bachelor and Bend was one of our favorite stops on 100 Days of Winter so this deal comes highly recommended.

Guests will be able to pick up their tickets at Mt. Bachelor’s guest services desk at the West Village base area on their first day of use, between Monday, January 17, 2011 and Thursday, March 17, 2011. 96 hour/$96 2-consecutive-day adult lift tickets are not valid President’s weekend, February 19-20, 2011.
