Conditions Report: Saturday, December 10th 2016, 6:08 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Dumpity dump dump dump. Powder Alert! Mother Nature backed the truck up and it has been dumping all afternoon. For Saturday Sunrise joins the daily lift schedule, as does Outback. All lower-mountain lifts and runs from Carnival to Kangaroo will be yours to explore if the wind & weather allow. Forecast is calling for another day of snow so don’t miss out on all this early season powder.  

For those of you making it to the mountain on Saturday we have the Drink Water Double Tap head to head race going off in the halfpipe.  And Scapolo’s will be making its seasonal debut this weekend open from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm. Beat the crowd and escape the morning rush, enjoy a hot breakfast at Cocoa’s Café starting at 7:30 a.m.

With all this deep snow comes some responsibility. A vehicle property equipped for winter driving conditions is essential, as are patience and safe driving skills. We’re also encouraging carpoolers – those with four or more people in a car get a primo parking spot at West Village on weekends & holidays. Even though Sunrise lift is now open for the season, the Sunrise Lodge and parking lot do not open until Wednesday, December 14. You’re welcome to start your day at West Village or at the Skyliner lift (if you already have a ticket or pass).

In addition to all of the fun coming up this weekend, we are excited to announce the Grand Opening of the new Cloudchaser chairlift on Friday, December 16th.

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Snow, snow and more snow.  Yet another healthy dose of winter goodness last night. We are in for another storm day here at Mt Bachelor on Friday. Blustery conditions and more importantly MORE SNOW are on deck for today.  Outback has been added to the list of scheduled lifts for today, keep checking back for the latest updates and to see if any of our winter weather might affect our lifts from spinning on time.

With this new storm, a reminder to be prepared for winter mountain driving.  HIGH CLEARANCE, WINTER READY 4-WHEEL DRIVE & AWD VEHICLES are highly recommended.

Even with all the new snow, early season conditions still exist. Always keep an eye out for marked and unmarked hazards.

In addition to all of the fun coming up this weekend, we are excited to announce the Grand Opening of the new Cloudchaser Chairlift on Friday, December 16th.

ADDITIONAL LIFT & TERRAIN OPENINGS – The Sunrise lift is scheduled to open for the season on Saturday.  Our crew is hard at work preparing for the weekend, but until then please obey all closure signs.

Conditions Report: Thursday, December 8th 2016, 5:54 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

It is currently snowing here at Mt Bachelor with 1 inch to report overnight. The story of the day is going to be the huge winter storm that is arriving this morning and forecast to last through Friday.  We could receive a significant amount of snow during the day on Thursday. With the amount of snow predicted, today could be one of those epic storm days that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Since we’ll be expecting this storm to hit hard and heavy, please come prepared for challenging road conditions. We’re thinking HIGH CLEARANCE, WINTER READY 4-WHEEL DRIVE & AWD VEHICLES are more of a requirement than a recommendation.

We’re serving breakfast in Cocoa’s Cafe starting at 7:30 a.m. daily this season. Get an early start, beat the traffic and enjoy a hearty breakfast slopeside before hitting the hill. 

While all the new snow has our stoke levels high, please be aware that early season conditions exist. Watch for marked and unmarked hazards. And take it easy on the road.

ADDITIONAL LIFT & TERRAIN OPENINGS – The Sunrise and Outback lifts are scheduled to open for the season no later than Saturday. We have crews prepping both areas. You might notice Outback lift spinning from time to time – it’s part of the preparation process. In the meantime, please obey all closure signs.

SUMMIT LIFT STATUS – Summit will look very inviting with a fresh blanket of snow and many of us are hungry to ski down from the top (including this author!) Our veteran folks in the operations department tell us that, in order to open Summit for the first time each season, they need three days of non-vicious weather. The work includes getting a snow cat up to the top, constructing the unloading area, digging out the top terminal, grooming the catchline and setting boundary lines. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have enough time to get it all done before it starts snowin’ & blowin’ again tonight. But as soon as we see a longer break in the weather, we’ll be on it. In the meantime, remember that the Summit climbing route is closed. Patrol will be skinning up periodically to do some avalanche reduction work in the bowl; it’s not safe for anyone else to be up there until the lift is ready to ride.

Thanks for your patience… keep thinking snow… and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Conditions Report: Wednesday, December 7th 2016, 5:50 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

I think it’s safe to say we’re all reeling from today’s boot-deep, blower-pow conditions. The 25” we racked up since it all kicked off this past Sunday has made for some primo early season turns. Snowfall tapered off just after midday today and we’ll be seeing clear skies now through Wednesday afternoon. Be sure to bundle up tomorrow because the forecast is calling for temperatures to dip into the single digits overnight, not reaching into the teens until late morning. And to ease the woes and worries of those that couldn’t sneak out of work to take some turns today, you can expect the chilly temps to keep today’s snowfall well preserved. There will still be powder stashes in need of slaying.

We’re serving breakfast in Cocoa’s Cafe starting at 7:30 a.m. daily this season. Get an early start, beat the traffic and enjoy a hearty breakfast before ripping it up on the slopes.

While all the new snow has our stoke levels high, please be aware that early season conditions exist. Watch for marked and unmarked hazards. And take it easy on the road.

ADDITIONAL LIFT & TERRAIN OPENINGS – The Sunrise and Outback lifts are scheduled to open for the season no later than Saturday. We have crews prepping both areas. You might notice Outback lift spinning from time to time – it’s part of the preparation process. In the meantime, please obey all closure signs.

SUMMIT LIFT STATUS – Summit will look very inviting on Wednesday with the clear sky. The snow coverage is good and many of us are hungry to ski down from the top (including this author!) Our veteran folks in the operations department tell us that, in order to open Summit for the first time each season, they need three days of non-vicious weather. The work includes getting a snow cat up to the top, constructing the unloading area, digging out the top terminal, grooming the catchline and setting boundary lines.

Conditions Report: Tuesday, December 6th 2016, 5:52 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Whew – it was real nice out there today, folks! Creamy, soft, powdery goodness on every turn and it’s only going to get better. Today’s storm front was slow to roll in, but now it’s in full swing and snow is forecasted to fall slowly and steadily through the night into Tuesday morning. Powder turns trump the office any day, but tomorrow that will be especially true. Be sure to check back here at 6:15 a.m. to find out the latest on the storm and mountain operations. Hope we see you up here for another round of powder!

We’re serving breakfast in Cocoa’s Cafe starting at 7:30 a.m. daily this season. With Tuesday looking like a killer day to catch that first chair, it’d be a good idea to get up here early and get a hearty breakfast in first. 

While all the new snow has our stoke levels high, please be aware that early season conditions exist on the mountain – and on the roads. Watch for marked and unmarked hazards when skiing/riding and remember that everyone’s winter driving skills are a little rusty. It’s never a bad idea to slow your roll…the snow will still be here.

ADDITIONAL LIFT & TERRAIN OPENINGS – The Sunrise and Outback lifts are scheduled to open for the season no later than Saturday. We have crews prepping both areas. The Sunrise side would ordinarily be open by now, but several runs are torn apart by access roads associated with lift construction work. We’ll put them back together this week as heavy construction winds down. On the west side, we have grooming machines moving the snow around to where we need it. Crews are also building the lift loading & unloading ramps. You might notice Outback lift spinning from time to time – it’s part of the preparation process. In the meantime, please obey all closure signs. Marshmallow & lower Avalanche are closed; please do not cross below the West Village Getback into the Marshmallow area. Father west, all terrain west of Leeway is closed until Outback opens.

Thanks for your patience… keep thinking snow… and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Conditions Report: Monday, December 5th 2016, 5:56 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Well, we got rocked with snow today! The mountain racked up 11” in the past 24-hours and it looks like we’ve got colder temperatures and another serving of powder in the forecast for tomorrow. Snowfall is projected to peter out at some point this evening, but will be picking back up mid-morning on Monday. Skyliner, Sunshine Accelerator, and Pine Marten lifts are scheduled to operate tomorrow from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Check back in the morning for an up to date report!

Snow came down hard and fast today making road conditions impassable for ill-equipped vehicles. WINTER READY 4-WHEEL DRIVE & AWD VEHICLES WITH HIGH-CLEARANCE ARE A MUST FOR TOMORROW…frustrations and dangerous conditions may be in store without it. We’re expecting more of the same for tomorrow, so come prepared for winter storm conditions both on and off the slopes. 

We’re serving breakfast in Cocoa’s Cafe starting at 7:30 a.m. daily this season. Beat the traffic and get an early start before the weather kicks into high gear tomorrow morning to enjoy a hearty breakfast before first chair.

Early season conditions exist on the mountain – and on the roads. Watch for marked and unmarked hazards when skiing/riding and remember that we’re all still getting our winter driving skills back in shape. It’s never a bad idea to slow your roll…the snow will still be here. We’re also launching a carpool initiative this season! On weekends, get a premiere close-in parking spot if your car is carrying at least four people. (Space available on a first-come, first-served basis.) Let’s all do our part to minimize traffic and encourage safe driving on Century Drive.

A friendly reminder that our winter Uphill Travel Policy is in effect. This means you can hike the Cone, but all other areas of Mt. Bachelor are closed to uphill travel. Thanks for your cooperation and respect for everyone’s safety.

Finally, we’re less than a week away from opening additional lifts and terrain. The Sunrise and Outback lifts are scheduled to open for the season on Saturday, December 10. Additional lifts & terrain will follow soon thereafter.

Hope we see you up here for another round of powder tomorrow!
