Conditions Report: Monday, February 6th 2017, 6:06 am

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

We wrapped up the weekend with a brief break in weather this afternoon, but snowfall is projected to return later this evening, carrying on throughout tomorrow and into Tuesday. On the slopes Monday, you can expect primo conditions as the current mix of skier-packed powder and windloaded stashes will be graced with a fresh blanket of powder. Temps are forecasted to drop a bit in contrast with today, so hopefully we will see a decrease in overall snow density as well. Wind will remain a key player as this storm front swings back through, so much like today, we are expecting to see strong, ripping gusts at mid and upper mountain for Monday. There’s a good chance tonight’s wind-precip combination may impact some lift startups for tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back first thing to see the most up to date report on operations. A reminder that tree wells are always a factor, but even more so during a storm cycle. Please educate yourself on tree well safety and ALWAYS ski or ride with a partner off piste. Face masks and low-light lenses seem appropriate and midweek warriors who love a good storm ride should be blissed out by what’s on deck.

We’ll be in deep storm mode up here all week, new snowfall is making conditions on the roads and parking lots increasingly challenging. Roads are still considerably icy and with the wide range of weather conditions we are experiencing, driving a properly equipped vehicle is essential for making the drive as safe as possible. Plan ahead, get an early start, be patient and most importantly, have a rippin’ good time when you get here!
