Mount Bachelor is a stratovolcano with a shield volcano beneath it. It is located in central Oregon in the Cascade Mountain Range. The Mt. Bachelor ski resort has been up and running since the 1980's. It was born between 11,000 and 15,000 years ago. Mt. Bachelor began as a shield volcano. As eruptions became more explosive over time, it was capped with a stratovolcano. Mt. Bachelor stands at 9,068 feet tall. It last erupted between 8,000 and 10,000 years ago. Mt. Bachelor is completely covered with ash from the Mount Mazama eruption about 6,845 years ago.
