Bachelor the fifth largest ski area in the U.S., with 96 trails and 4,318 total skiable acres.

“Mt. Bachelor has been working hard to improve an already amazing experience for every guest who visits the destination, and the new Cloudchaser lift will be a great addition,” said Ian Anderson, partner and PR director for Backbone Media. “We are excited to be working with the resort in an increased capacity and can’t wait to share the amazing experiences available there with our friends in the media.”
