Tickets:  Free Event with Tickets required

Big Wave is back again! Every year Mt. Bachelor holds this one-of-a-kind event inspired by the event's host — legendary surfer and Mt. Bachelor Ambassador, Gerry Lopez. 

This snowboard-only event features a series of huge sweeping banked corners, quarter pipes, and spines, incorporating the natural terrain as much as possible, to create wave-like features into a flowing course - this year located off Midway. The idea of the Mt. Bachelor Big Wave Challenge is to bring the surf to the mountain.
