Getting there: From Bend, travel southwest about 20 miles along Century Drive to Bachelor’s West Village Lodge parking lot. The nordic center is on the right.

Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center is a tipping-off point for a variety of cross-country ski adventures. Free common corridor passes, available at the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center, allow skiers to use the corridor to get from the nordic center to the ski trails on the north side of Cascade Lakes Highway. Trails on the south side of the highway are part of the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center and require a trail pass (a daily pass is $19 for adults). The common corridor leads skiers to snow-covered Cascade Lakes Highway. Be cautious of the current low snowpack, and stay on Bachelor’s groomed nordic trails if necessary.
