Shoo Those Clouds Away During Your Next Sunriver Vacation

Not just one but two Cloudchasers debuted this season at Mount Bachelor. The first one was a ski lift, a high-speed quad that climbs nearly 1,500 feet, opens up 635 acres of terrain on the mountain’s eastern flanks, and adds 6.2 miles of groomed runs. It’s the resort’s first such venture into new territory since the Northwest Express quad was built 20 years ago, giving access to the West Bowls.

To commemorate the new lift, Bend’s 10 Barrel Brewing Co. created a Comet single-hop IPA called, of course, Cloudchaser. It was served at the big opening bash at the mountain, and you’ll also find it, if your tap timing is right, on rotation back at the home base, on NW Galveston. So far, it hasn’t been showing up at 10 Barrel’s more far flung outposts—Portland, Denver, Boise, and soon, San Diego—but maybe that’s because no one there will get the reference. “Cloudchaser,” you see, refers to the distinctive way clouds blowing in from the west sweep past the top of the Mount Bachelor and vanish in a puff of vapor. After a day of beer tasting, take a break and reserve a hotel room at Sunriver Resort near Bend, OR.
