Mt. Bachelor ski area has plans for a Woodward Mountain Park with expanded learning terrain, a revamped Sunrise Lodge and parking lot improvements in time for the 2019-20 winter season, according to a Monday news release.

Woodward Mountain Parks include terrain zones with sculpted enhancements embedded in skiable areas that are made from snow and other materials. The features and terrain designs provide innovative ways to teach, learn, coach and progress, according to the release.

The Mt. Bachelor Woodward Mountain Park will encompass new terrain and infrastructure including three new lifts: two new covered carpet conveyor lifts and a 629-foot quad chairlift that will open five acres of new beginner terrain below Sunrise Lodge.

Upgrades to Sunrise Lodge include modernized restroom facilities, a remodeled rental shop and a reconfiguration of the food court. Mt. Bachelor will also construct a third parking lot in the Sunrise base area that will increase parking capacity by 50 percent, according to the release. The new lot will sit below the existing lower Sunrise lot and will provide guests access to the new quad chairlift.
