Conditions Report: Tuesday, February 7th 2017, 6:10 am

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

With 10″ in the past 24 hours, there’s no way anybody on the mountain today could have possibly had a case of the Mondays…and with more snow on the way, we’re in the midst of experiencing some of the best snow conditions we’ve had on the slopes in weeks. Turns are deep and this new powder is mixing in with the older snow pack like an absolute dream. A few more inches are predicted to come our way before the current storm front tapers off later this evening – and then, without skipping much of a beat, the next system in the weather queue takes its place. Snowfall kicks up again mid-morning, so you can expect another storm day tomorrow with potentially heavier accumulation than we saw today. Temps are projected to start out low, mostly in the mid-teens, and then ramp up to the low-30’s by day’s end, switching into mixed precipitation by Wednesday. So Tuesday should be, without a doubt, the best ski day of the week. Winds are looking as though they may be more cooperative for tomorrow, in which case we’ll be geared up to open Northwest – where over two feet of untouched snow awaits. A reminder that tree wells are always a factor, but even more so during a storm. Please educate yourself on tree well safety and ALWAYS ski or ride with a partner off piste. Best to call in sick for Tuesday, because knee deep powder is the name of the game for tomorrow. 

We’re in deep storm mode up here and will be all week; the wide range in weather we are experiencing is making conditions on the roads and in the parking lots challenging. With gusty snowfall limiting visibility and the roads being considerably icy, it is not only essential to drive a properly equipped vehicle but also to take your time getting here. Plan ahead, get an early start, be patient and most importantly, have a rippin’ good time once you hit those slopes!
