Bachelor Unveils Upgrades

Mt. Bachelor announces $3.5 million in improvements.

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 11:50 PM

Bachelor is quietly having a busy off-season and on Thursday it let the proverbial cat out of the bag when it announced a bevy of upgrades at the resort, including expanded seating and amenities at nearly all of the mountain’s lodges.

Perhaps most intriguing is the announcement of a new “umbrella bar” at the Sunrise Lodge, a three-season outdoor bar that features a retractable umbrella, and movable glass walls. The new indoor-outdoor bar will allow the resort to remake the indoor bar at Sunrise into 90-seat café, according to a Mt. Bachelor press release issued Thursday.

The Sunrise upgrades are just some of a host of off-season improvements across the mountain totaling $3.5 million, according to Mt. Bachelor. The resort is also upgrading its snow grooming equipment, its rental fleet and bus fleet. Bachelor is also going green with a newly installed solar panel at its Bend bus barn that will generate enough electricity to offset the operation of the Carousel lift, according to the release. Other changes, include expanded operations of the upper deck dining area at West Village, which will increase from 2-5 days per week and a new salad bar at Cocoa’s Café to go with a new beer and wine bar there.
