Conditions Report: Tuesday, January 31st 2017, 5:53 am

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

The spring-like weather wave we were able to ride this last week of January is coming to an end as Old Man Winter works his way back to Mt. Bachelor to welcome February. Forecast calls for fast groomers and blue skies to be swapped out for blankets of powder and steady snowfall for the rest of the week. This storm system should come on nice and easy, kicking off Tuesday morning with intermittent flurries, light winds, and temps in the high-20’s. As the week rolls on, both snowfall and winds are projected to gain intensity throwing us back into powder mode. Today, winds on upper mountain just wouldn’t let up for long enough to open Summit for the full day, and we suspect with Tuesday’s forecast it might be the same story. In any event, our standard roster of lifts scheduled for tomorrow will still provide endless miles of trails and plenty of vertical to rip on. Keep up those snow dances because we’ve got a promising week ahead!

With winter weather patterns back in the forecast, we’ll be experiencing storm conditions both on the mountain and the roads this week. The roads are still considerably icy in spots, and with new snowfall they will grow increasingly challenging if you are not driving a properly equipped vehicle. Plan ahead, get an early start, and most importantly, take your time.

Time to get geared up for more snow – see you on the slopes!
