Enjoy the beauty of the high Cascades on the fantastic trails of the Mt Bachelor Nordic Center while challenging yourself in the 2021 Zions Bank Boulder Mountain Tour on our 16km single-loop course. The course begins on the Common Corridor and immediately rises to the high point of the course on Blue Jay’s Way. From here, the course makes a long and exciting 3 km descent to the low point of the network at the bottom of Oli’s Alley, via the Lower Devecka’s trail. Upon completion of Oli’s Alley, the course winds up and around Leslie’s Lunge and returns to Lower Devecka’s for the steady climb back up to Bob’s Bungalow. From Bob’s, it’s a moderate and gentle climb up Woody’s Way before the final climb up the Screamer Trail to the lap/finish on the Common Corridor. With excellent views, pristine grooming and a true test of skill, it will be an event to remember!
Please note: Mt Bachelor will offer a marked course Monday through Friday, Feb. 1-5, but not over the weekend. As well, all participants will require a trail pass or season pass, as well as a (free) parking reservation.
