Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

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.
