Hitting Mt. Bachelor this weekend
My buddy hooked it up with his timeshare in Sun River, so we're rolling down for for a long weekend. Staying 4days/3nights and riding 2 days. Prob 6-8 of us. Google maps shows Sunriver being ~30min. from the resort. Is that accurate, or is it actually much longer due to road conditions?
I went one time over a decade ago, back when I was a skier (yup), and don't remember much about the mountain. I tried searching on here, but didn't come up with much info. We're not interested in the park, other than maybe a couple laps here and there if it doesn't require a special pass or helmets. We spend most of our time threading through the trees, hiking ridges, or just looking for fresh tracks, steeps, and technical terrain. So, I have to ask: What runs/lifts to avoid, nice areas to hit, where it's worth it to hike, etc...?
I also remember that it wasn't like the big resorts with much of a village or nightlife. I'm hoping alot has changed over the years, so is that still the case?
Also, is there anywhere (online or in-store) where we can find discounted lift tix? Hopefully better than the 2day pass for $118 at the window.
Thanks in advance!
