    Mt Bachelor, Oregon

    Florida Ski Council Ski Trip

    February 24 - March 2, 2024

    In the heart of Central Oregon you’ll find Mt. Bachelor, a spectacular extinct volcano rising out of the Deschutes National Forest and surrounded by 2 million acres of forested wilderness providing for scenic beauty rarely visible elsewhere. Crowds are minimal here, and the mountain is large. With over 4,300 acres of lift-accessible terrain, Mt. Bachelor is the 6th largest ski resort in North America! Skiers and boarders can go 360 degrees off the summit and find a wide variety of terrain including tree skiing at its best. Located on the eastern flanks of Oregon’s Central Cascades, Mt. Bachelor is known for its light, dry snow, diverse terrain, family-friendliness, and long seasons. The combination of the serene Deschutes National Forest and inviting Central Oregon hospitality with the unique experience of skiing powder for nearly the entire season on a dormant volcano has become a destination for skiers and riders from all over the world. If you have yet to visit Mt. Bachelor, now is the time to check it off your bucket list!

    Do you want more snow and at a lower elevation, than this is the trip for you. The base elevation is 5700 feet and top elevation is 9065 feet. Most other resorts start at 9000 feet and go up from there. The annual average is over 450 inches of snow with over 150 inch base. Compare that to other resorts you are thinking about.

    Bend, more a city than resort town, is located less than 30 minutes from the slopes. When exploring the town, you will find that Bend is know as "beer city, USA" with 12+ popular breweries around just the down town area. Don’t worry wine lovers, you are in central Oregon, home to several boutique wineries. Plus staying downtown gives you the convenience to the many nearby boutique shops and restaurants for any budget within easy walking distance.

    Our group lodging is at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes which is also the location of all the FSC parties. Nestled on the banks of the Deschutes River, The Riverhouse is Central Oregon's premier hotel. These hotel rooms feature amenities that include microwave, refrigerator, Keurig coffee maker, large flat screen TV, free high-speed Wi-Fi and more. Also a daily full breakfast is included. Among the three restaurants housed in the property, the steakhouse 'Crossings' is best known. We are located just five minutes from downtown Bend, and within walking distance to the Scenic Deschutes River Trail, and about 30 minutes from the Redmond airport.

        BIKE & BARGE TRIP INFORMATION

        ********DAY BY DAY BIKING ITINERARY*******

         Day 1- Amsterdam - Utrecht

        Merlijn will set sail for Utrecht where there is an overnight stay. We’ll present you with a welcome drink and introduce the crew. We will also provide information on the tour, the ship, and offer you a safety briefing. Dinner will be served during the cruise, and in the evening there will be time for a city walk through Utrecht.

        Day 2 Utrecht – Vianen - Schoonhoven.

        Bike tour: approx. 46 km (28 mi) or short tour 31 km (19 mi)

        A sailing breakfast is served while we cruise to Vianen, where your bike tour to the charming silver town of Schoonhoven will start. Today’s tour takes you through one of the most picturesque parts of Holland.

        Day 3 Schoonhoven – Kinderdijk - Gouda.

        Bike tour: approx. 55 km (34 mi)

        This morning, the Merlijn will sail along the river Lek, while you enjoy beautiful Dutch scenery cycling from Schoonhoven to Kinderdijk. Here, an impressive row of large windmills will become visible, which were built to drain the Alblasserwaard polder. There is an opportunity to visit one of the mills. After your visit, you will cycle on to the city of Gouda, through a genuine Dutch backdrop of polder landscapes. Gouda is famous for its cheeses, candles and ‘stroopwafels’ (syrup waffles). Dinner is served on board, and we stay in Gouda overnight.

        Day 4 Gouda – Leiden.

        Bike tour: approx. 35 km (21.7 mi)

        In the morning there’s more time to explore the city of Gouda and you can enjoy an included tour at the ‘St. Jan’ cathedral. After your visit today’s bike tour starts, and takes you through the Green Heart of Holland. Leaving Gouda, we will pass Boskoop, famous for its nurseries (horticulture), particularly woody plant and perennial nurseries, of which some 774 are situated on long stretches of land, divided by narrow canals. You will pass villages and small cities such as Alphen aan den Rijn. We end the day in Leiden. When exploring Leiden, you will notice its rich history, which is still very evident.

        Leiden is where Rembrandt was born and developed his painting skills. Its identity is largely determined by the first university in Holland (1575), which has developed into a world-famous centre of science, while its many students contribute to the lively and convivial atmosphere in the city. After dinner you will have time to stroll through the charming center of this city.

         

        Day 5 Leiden – Lisse - Keukenhof – Haarlem.

        Bike tour: approx. 23 km (14 mi)


        While you enjoy your breakfast, the Merlijn will sail the ‘Kager Plassen’, a beautiful series of lakes. Your bike tour will start from Lisse, which is near the Flower Exhibition Keukenhof. It is estimated that nearly 7 million flower bulbs are planted here annually to cover an area of roughly 80 acres. This makes Keukenhof, easily, the largest flower garden in the world. At this stop, you will get to admire all these beautiful tulips and other flowers that are cultivated in Holland.

        After your visit, you will bike to the city of Haarlem, taking in some breath taking Dutch scenery and of course, more flowers! At night, you will enjoy a dinner at one of the many restaurants in Haarlem, taking a stroll at some point through the historical city of Haarlem, and perhaps rounding off the day by drinking the famous local “Jopen” beer in one of the many bars or in the “Jopen Church”.

        Day 6 Haarlem – Zaanse Schans - Amsterdam.

        Bike tour: approx. 42 km (26 mi)

        Today’s bike tour will be from Haarlem to Amsterdam, along the Zaanse Schans, famous for its open-air museum and wind Mills and green wooden houses typical for this area. Your tour ends in the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam. A farewell dinner on board will follow.
