Hello Bend/Oregon friends,
Heading to Oregon the first weekend of March. Looking to hit Bachelor for a few days. My question is, where to stay? This question looks like it was answered a few different ways over the years on here, so I thought I'd refresh it for up to date info.
Renting a vehicle, so to and from the mountain shouldn't be an issue. Does it make sense to just stay in Bend? Is there any advantage to stay up toward the mountain at all, or in a different area (sun river, etc.)? Leaning toward renting a house on vrbo/airbnb. Apres is important as well as alternative outdoor activities (some people who will be staying with us don't ski or snowboard).
I'm thinking these prerequisites make staying in Bend proper the correct choice, but I just wanted to hear from any locals about other factors or things I may not be thinking about.
Thanks all in advance!
