Located in the Cascade Range, Mount Bailey, the rounded shield volcano offers great slopes and snow, attracting all kinds of winter sport fans.

Here one can find a lot of trails suitable for snowboarding, but one of the best is the Avalanche Bowl. This is a 12 mi/19.30 km, out and back trail. This spot is well known for cat snowboarding.

Overall there are 6000 ac/24.28 km² of terrain, ready to be explored in a beautiful alpine environment that leaves no one uninterested. This terrain is more of a place for intermediate to advanced level athletes, rather than beginners. You should come equipped with all the necessary gear, especially if you have planned a two day trip.

Bare in mind that the weather conditions on this mountain are unpredictable and an avalanche can be produced, so be well informed and prepared even for such an event, before packing your bags. Surely you can find lodging nearby, but if you want a more primitive experience, maybe you should try Hemlock Butte Ski Cabin, not far from the spot. However you need to make reservations first.
