Conditions Report: Friday, December 30th 2016, 5:49 am

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

Today was an outstanding day to be on the mountain and Friday looks to be another great day of skiing and riding here at Mt Bachelor. Thank you to everybody and for your patience on these busy Holiday afternoons. The entire mountain is again scheduled for operation on Friday, hopefully the winds from today won’t hamper our efforts to get everything open at 9:00 a.m. Tomorrow will be another bustling day so getting an early start is advised.

Friday will be busy, 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!
