    Bend sucks. Bachy sucks.

    Don't buy lift tickets or real estate there please.

    We don't really need to say T-Ride sucks because it's hard enough to get to and expensive enough to keep crowds to a minimum.

    Bachelor has endless, epic tree skiing. Been skiing there for decades and I still find myself in places I have never skied before. The area is huge! If you like skiing trees you will not be disappointed by Bachelor

    The snow pack is also a great strength for Bach. Right now, they have 5 feet AT THE BASE. That extra 1000 feet of elevation, between Bach and the other local ski areas, makes for reliable/ high quality snow. Even in big drought years I have skied most weeks at Bach.

    Another plus is that the management has changed in the last couple of years and the new manager seems to be able to get lifts up and running on time. Lift lines are much shorter since this change. Bach has a lot of lifts, as long as they are running it can handle a big crowd. I have been there when the parking lot was closed because it was absolutely filled to the brim. On that day the lift lines were surprisingly short. Not to say that wind days don't shut the area down, but the capacity is there if the weather and the management cooperate.

We rent a home through VRBO so are within walking distance to most bars and eateries and can honestly say we enjoy our time in Bend as much as we do when we are on the mountain...
    If you're an outdoorsy sort it's pretty much a given that you will think about the possibility of moving to Bend after taking a trip there.

    But you won't...because of that murder rate and all the rape gangs [happy mattig? ]

    Anyone looking for real estate I've 20 acres on a Volcanic rockpile (some big as a truck). Old shack with a couple of broken down barns. Smith rock view from the front yard and Bachelor/Cascades in the back. Don't let the Cyotes bother ya. Just keep your house pets inside. Lol

    Funny you should say that as me and the wifey pooh are going to take a day with a realtor and look at some properties... Bend/Sunriver is where we are looking to retire... Still many years befor doing so, but I am floored by how much land and homes have gone up since we first visited... Absolutley love it there...

    And Mattig you are spot on regarding TRide... Love the mountain, people and town, but you have to be Oprah and Tom Cruise to afford to live there... I have been there several times and even on a POW day I dont think I have ever waited in a lift line for more than a couple of min... And talk about hard to get to... Fly from Columbus to Chicago than catch a flight to SLC and pickup a puddle jumper and fly to Montrose, CO... We than take an 1 1/2 hr shuttle (barring bad weather) drive from Montrose in order to get to TRide... Once there get bent over on lift tickets and food... But oooohhhhh so much fun...

    "as long as they are running" being the key aspect here

    Bend sucks. Too dusty.

    Edit: Too many bugs, too. And sunburns.

    Gah. Sorry. I'm in a small room, surrounded by a bunch of Cisco nerds arguing angrily about VPN routing. My brain is melting.

    Bend's okay.

    Not that many bugs in Bend, especially in the winter. Just lots of retired people who don't know how to navigate a traffic circle! Which there a many to navigate. But if you're coming from a big city, the traffic is delightful!

    Actually, if you're properly measuring the snow pack, the bottles, or cans, it doesn't really matter which you use for measuring, are empty before taking the snow pack measurement.

    Yeah, I was concerned about this. I ran into Meek Mills crew on a corner in North Philly and they told me to watch out for some of their homies in Bend, said I might get done dealt wit out there if not careful

    And funny enough T-Ride is actually easier to get to for us from here. PHL-DEN then sketchy puddle jumper to Montrose, then drive. Nets out similar times.
