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

Good Morning!

It was a wet night up here at Mt. Bachelor with rain present for most of the night before switching over to snow around 5 a.m. As a result the snow surface is going to fluctuate pretty dramatically across the mountain today. Most areas will be heavily saturated with dense snow pack with heavy fresh snow on top while other areas will on have dense snow on top of saturated groomers. Mountain operation teams are doing everything they can to give us a chance to still have fun in the mountains – Grooming crews worked diligently through the night to keep the slopes refreshed and lay down corduroy paths for us today. Lift Maintenance crews are out in force this morning working to remove the various forms of precipitation that has accumulated on the lifts and get them spinning.

It’s going to be a “see-how-this-goes” kind of day with the forecast calling for snow this morning, but Mother Nature seems to be going off script today, so we will see. Temperatures are expected to rise into the low 30’s by the afternoon and winds will likely be moderate.

Keep an eye on this page as we go through the day for the latest updates and the most up to date lift status.

Helpful Tricks and Tips

With new snow comes a reminder and a responsibility to understand Tree Well and Snow Immersion Hazards. Please stay up on good safety practices and always ski or ride with a buddy in eyesight/ if you are headed off-trail.

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

Good Morning! A little over 2” of new snow overnight has coated everything with a fresh layer of white goodness! Even though it’s snowed overnight, it’s going to be a flip of the coin day as there’s potential for the snow to switch over to mixed precipitation during the day. Temperatures are expected to rise into the low 30’s by the afternoon, so we will see how long the snowflakes stay flaky. Winds have been moderate overnight and look to stay that way today.

Today will mark the first opportunity this season for Ski Patrol to get up to Summit. Opening the lift for the first time in a season involves a significant amount of setup work, including snow safety assessments and avalanche reduction work, ski area boundary marking, unloading ramp construction, and other miscellaneous tasks. We don’t have a specific opening projection for Summit just yet, but know that we’re working as quickly as we can. We want to ski/ride up there too! But when it does open, be advised that Summit will be for experts only. There will not be any grooming and the snow depth & density will be highly variable.

This burst of snow is likely to taper off at some point before noon then leaving us with cloudy skies and temps in the 20’s. Winds were blowing out of the south most of the night and gusts were strong, we are now seeing a west wind with less extreme breezes. Wind is going to be the biggest factor that we keep our eyes on today – especially as we look at opening new terrain. The snow surface will be soft and smooth with a nice layer of oh so fresh powder on top!

Operational crews made great progress putting in catch lines and rescue roads on Northwest Lift during the day on Wednesday, now putting the ball in Mother Nature’s court! Lighter winds and a successful snow safety assessment from Ski Patrol are the final pieces of the puzzle that need to come together before we can open the powder gates to the west. A few things to consider as we move forward:

When Northwest opens, mandatory buddy riding WILL be required in the West Bowls. What this means is Ski Patrol may be checking buddies at entry points to West Bowls. If you exit a run and lift without your buddy we will be checking in on what happened, and you may / may not be able to load the lift until buddies have been reconnected. Be smart, be safe, be cool, stay stoked.
Friends on a powder day is the Mt. Bachelor way! This means staying within 1-2 turns of your buddy, always be in visual and auditory contact. 
Shovel, transceiver, probe? Based on the volume of snow and type of snow we’ve received it’s recommended to ski / ride with a shovel / transceiver / probe when off any maintained trails like East Bowls off Cloudchaser and West Bowls off Northwest, and all those tree stashes in between.
No change in story here – there are literally STILL thousands of powder turns and slashes across the mountain to be had on existing open terrain. Enjoy skiing in riding in terrain you’re familiar with tomorrow and over the next few days. Obey all closures and don’t hesitate to throw out a high-five to lift operations or a Mt. Bachelor employee who’s been working outside / around the clock in this raging winter wonderland.
Deep Snow and Tree Well hazards exist on mountain so take personal responsibility seriously – seriously!
What about Summit? We’re dreaming about it too! Stay tuned. Prep work is being done as weather permits and know we will open as soon as possible.
Snow storms are the best time to make sure your snow tires are dialed! This Saturday you have the opportunity to win a set of Nokian tires at the Green Tire Giveaway. In recognition of safety month, we’re mixing things  up by burying the tire off Milky Way and we’ll be running a safety focused “hunt.”  Shovel, transceiver and probe will be necessary, and we’ll be burying additional prizes. Stay tuned for more details but make a plan to be here on Saturday.

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

Good Morning!

A 1” dusting overnight finally gave our operations crew a chance to play catch-up and clear more of the parking lots and access roads. It’s crisp and clear out right now – we can see the top of the mountain for the first time in days! Today’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies with chilly temperatures and moderate winds. The snow surface will still be superb with deep dry snow readily available. Our grooming team was able to do what they do best last night and produce fresh corduroy on every scheduled lift for you to enjoy! We’ve got something for everyone up here today and it’s looking to be a great day at Mt. Bachelor

We are not expecting much for snow accumulation during the day today, however there looks to be another system returning to the mountains tonight that should bring with it more snow showers!  

A few things for skiers and riders to be aware of over the next few days as we continue to establish snow-roads, mark boundaries, dig-out lift terminals, and perform snow safety work:

There are literally thousands of powder turns and slashes across the mountain to be had on existing open terrain. Enjoy skiing in riding in terrain you’re familiar with tomorrow and over the next few days. Obey all closures and don’t hesitate to throw out a high-five to lift operations or a Mt. Bachelor employee who’s been working outside / around the clock in this raging winter wonderland.
Friends on a powder day is the Mt. Bachelor way! Ski/ride with a friend. This means staying within 1-2 turns of your buddy, always be in visual and auditory contact and have appropriate gear – both what you’re wearing and snow safety equipment – for where you’re skiing and riding. Based on the volume of snow and type of snow we’ve received it’s recommended to ski / ride with a shovel / transceiver / probe when off any maintained trails.
Wondering when Summit and Northwest are opening? Know that our operations team is cranking around the clock to build roads, clear lifts of snow / ice and our Patrol team will continue to use explosives to reduce avalanche danger each morning. Consider that this terrain has not yet been open this season, which means zero skier compaction, which means Deep Snow and Tree Well hazards. To that, caution work needs to be done. The snow that has fallen is cold, light and has lots of air pockets. Letting snow “settle”  for a day or two allows air pockets to minimize and snow density to increase – this makes for safer snow for skiing and riding. All work is happening in parallel and we’ll open expanded terrain as soon as possible.
Be prepared for mandatory buddy riding. We’ve done this in the past and are strongly considering requiring buddy riding when entering in newly expanded terrain. Stay tuned! What this means is Ski Patrol may be checking buddies at entry points to runs on terrain like West Bowls. If you exit a run and lift without your buddy we will be checking in on what happened, and you may / may not be able to load the lift until buddies have been reconnected. Be smart, be safe, be cool, stay stoked.
