Ha I'm goofy.

But this riding is way above my pay grade, this basically pro level... plus the run is manicured.

I thought Big Wave is more like Gerry Lopez riding backcountry w/ his son in Why I love Mt. Bachelor E2 - which seems more "normal" / doable. I'll shout out if I can swing it but right now planning a Whistler run for the following week so adding this would push it

I'm just going to do laps and watch my friends compete. It would be fun to dork around on the course, and I may try to get that opportunity on a non-competition day that weekend if possible, but if I entered the comp it would be a series of sub-2 foot airs and turns halfway up the banks. Nobody needs that.

Gentem announced that they're doing a free demo day at Bachelor on the Saturday (April 13th) of Big Wave. Their 2020 line-up will be available.

Wish they would've announced it sooner! Already booked a place in Whistler for Telus fest that weekend. Would've definitely made it down for this demo since none of us got a chance to hit Bachy yet this season.

Hey, is the road from Bend to Bachelor paved now?  Went there few years ago, and roads were not paved leading up to the mountain, was pretty hard to drive with a front wheeled rental car when it snows a bit.. wonder if i should spend more money on 4wheels, thanks!

Yes. The road is paved. They do use red volcanic rock gravel to sand the roads when it snows, however. This can make it seem like the road is unpaved. Personally, if I was going there during a storm cycle, I would still rent a 4WD.

We did a long day trip from Seattle to Hood on Saturday to ride laps at Timberline. 9+ hours (4.5 hrs each way) in the car to be on snow for about 4 hours. Totally worth it! The flow park line skiers' right off of Stormin Norman was super fun, as were laps off of Palmer/Magic Mile. We had hoped that maybe some of the Tits park stuff might still be up, but no such luck. The lot hangout scene was just what I needed.

I think a lot of you guys know already but a lot of us aren't Facebook friends. But anyways my fam and I made it back the PNW last April and we setup homebase in Bend, OR last June. So anyways if anyone finds themselves at bachelor this winter lets link up and take some chair laps or do some hiking and pow surf laps.
