We did a snow camping trip up the mountain and it was awesome. Amazing views of Bachelor, Broken Top, Three Sisters. Can see the city lights of Bend glowing in the distance at night. We snowshoed in and set up camp a few hundred feet below the summit. Snowshoes are a must in the winter, I think we had about 8 feet of snow out there. Snowmobiles are abundant around the base of the mountain, but not so much higher up. Also popular spot for back-country skiing, saw plenty of people doing that as well.
