BEND, Ore. (AP) - Mt. Bachelor plans to build is first ski lift to new terrain in two decades.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/1VLLA58 ) that the resort says the new Cloudchaser lift will climb 1,448 vertical feet, opening up 635 acres of skiable ground and 6.2 acres of groomed runs.

The resort said in a news release Thursday that the lift will make Mt. Bachelor the fifth largest ski area in the country.

Interim General Manager John McLeod says construction will begin this summer. The resort hopes to have the lift ready for skiers and snowboarders by Christmas.

The construction won’t affect mountain biking, disc golf or other summer activities on the mountain.
