What's up With Mt. Bachelor's Holiday Pricing? 

Letter to the editor.

I’m new to town and am really perplexed by Mt. Bachelor's "condition-based pricing." We had friends fly here for MLK (Weekend) because we love Bend and the mountain and wanted to share it with them.  Was shocked that the crappiest ski day I have ever had in my 35-plus years cost $70. There were really only two lifts running, no visibility and miserable conditions (yes, I get I maybe should have stayed home).
I get that it was a "holiday," but really?  Mt. Bachelor should reevaluate this policy, especially if they want return visitors. Also, they said they were offering everyone a free mid-week pass because the weather stunk, but actually it was a 2-for-1 ticket (if I have to pay for one, I don't consider it free) and it doesn't help visitors who aren't here during the week. Next time, offer a free hot cocoa or something or just be decent and have the prices truly based on conditions! – Lindsay

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
