Conditions Report: Wednesday, January 18th 2017, 6:16 am

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

Mother Nature has got her nose to the grindstone, brewing up a multi-day storm event for us this week. Luckily, we were able to squeeze in one more relatively clear, groomer-ripping day before the predicted precipitation hit us right as lifts stopped spinning this afternoon. The forecast calls for wet weather accompanied by high winds to carry on through Wednesday. If you need to play catch up at the office or rest your legs from ripping those hard and fast groomers all week, tomorrow is your day. Colder temps bring snow levels down to 4,000 feet by Thursday morning, and then we get a short breather before substantial, heavy snowfall hammers the mountain throughout the weekend. Given the pending conditions, we plan to be running with limited operations for Wednesday and will not be conducting our usual grooming routine overnight. Keeping our snowcats off the slopes will allow the snow to properly absorb the moisture and help to preserve the overall snowpack. Be sure to check back tomorrow morning for the latest update on lifts and operations. For those of you that are completely unphased by the elements, live for days where you have the mountain to yourself, and don’t mind rocking that Pacific Northwest tuxedo of head-to-toe Gore-Tex…you’ll have a ball.
