Bachelor Recognized with Tommi Tyndall Award by Gene Fulkerson & Mary Olhausen Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort received the Far West Ski Association's Tommi Tyndall Award, presented to a ski area that has made a distinguished contribution to skiing. Accepting the Award at the 81st Annual FWSA Convention in Reno, NV on behalf of the Mt. Bachelor was Drew Jackson, Marketing and Communications Manager, and Terese Jarvis, Group Sales Associate. Mt. Bachelor, operating since 1958, was formed 11,000 to 15,000 years ago as a volcano shield. The resort is one of the largest in the Pacific Northwest with 3,683 skiable acres, a vertical drop of 3,365 feet and rises over 9,000 feet. Mt. Bachelor is about to get bigger with a new chairlift and associated trails, replacement of some existing lifts, expanding snowmaking coverage, construction of a lift-served downhill mountain bike park and additions to the Nordic trail. This year, Mt. Bachelor hosted the second annual FWSA Mini Ski Week. It was a huge success with lots of skiing and innovative events offered, including a moonlight snowshoe walk. In its fifth year, "Mt. Bachelor Charity Ski Weeks" provides assistance to several charitable/non-profit organizations in Central Oregon. Mt. Bachelor provides lift ticket vouchers to non-profit organizations that can be redeemed for a $25 full day lift ticket to be used during Charity Ski Weeks. Mt. Bachelor contributes 100% of the proceeds back to the non-profit organizations. For the past seven years, Mt. Bachelor has supported the Ski-For-Schools Program fundraiser to benefit the Education Founda- 32 Far West Skier's Guide 2O13 - 2O14 / See the Digital Edition of the Far West Skier's Guide at www.fwsa.org. http://www.Ski.Com http://www.fwsa.org
