Mt Bachelor is located in the Cascade Mountains of Central Oregon, 20 miles from the once booming, but now slumping resort town of Bend. The snow-capped, dormant volcano is unique in that it is conical-shaped with seven high-speed quads, offering 360 access to the whole area. Chutes and gullies created long ago by lava flows, gives the terrain a shape and contour found in few other places.
Combine 370 inches of annual snowfall, howling winds that create fairy-tale wind-lips, and you're left with acres of terrain that rival the best of any man-made park. Weekly storms rock the mountains, forcing you to frequently use force to steer through the dense weather systems. But even before the clouds clear and the sky is blue again, Mt Bachelor is damn fun!READ NEXT: Freeriding, terrain parks and Pistes
