Mt. Bachelor Big Wave Challenge with Gerry Lopez

The Mt. Bachelor Big Wave Challenge is about surfing a snowboard through a unique and special course built specifically for this event. Each rider will be judged on creative choice of lines through the features, degree of difficulty of individual maneuvers and overall style & flow through the run. The Big Wave Challenge is a one of a kind, surfing the snow happening that is sure to be fun and exciting whether one is a contestant or a spectator.

The Big Wave Challenge will be followed by a Luau with traditional Hawaiian cuisine along with live music featuring Bend’s local Hawaiian musician, Bill Keale. And the Pine Marten Express lift will remain open for the competition and public skiing & boarding until 4:00pm – two hours later than the regular closing time!
