Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Light snow falling this morning here at Mt. Bachelor as we come upon the last weekend of 2016. We’ve had an amazing December of snow and that looks to continue this morning. Today’s snowfall should be just the thing to freshen up our slopes in a soft corduroy kind of way. For Friday we will have snow showers and possibly some blustery conditions at times. These blustery conditions could prevent us from getting the entire mountain open but rest assured, our crews are out there working hard this morning getting everything ready for a great day of skiing and riding. We have all of our lifts on the schedule for this morning (except soon-to-be-complete Rainbow) and the plan, conditions permitting, is to have 360 degrees of mountain choices from the top when we start at 9:00 a.m. It is sure to be busy so get an early start and we’ll see you here..
It will be bustling today, on the roads, in the parking lots and inside our lodges. But if you follow these plans, it’s more likely that you’ll have a positive and fun experience:
Leave Bend/Sunriver by 7:15 a.m. You’ll get the best parking spot, be near the front of the line for tickets or rentals, and ready to hit the slopes when lifts start loading at 9:00 a.m.
We offer breakfast starting at 7:30 a.m. at Cocoa’s Cafe in West Village Lodge. Beat the morning rush, enjoy a hearty meal and be among the first in line for tickets or tracks. As for lunch, keep in mind that we have two restaurants at our mid-mountain Pine Marten Lodge. Better yet, just wait out the rush and refuel after 2:00 p.m.
Our parking lots can fill to capacity on the busiest days. Once our lots are full, we have no other choice but to turn people away. Again, those who arrive early won’t be faced with this potential situation. Please carpool or consider taking the Mt Bachelor Shuttle from Bend to help minimize congestion both on the roads and in the parking lots.
Be mindful and aware of heavier traffic on the slopes, and practice patience and kindness in the lines…’tis the season after all! We’re stoked we are able to share this experience with you and we look forward to hosting you as we head towards the New Year!
