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

Another gift from Mother Nature this morning. Conditions are going to be excellent when we get started.. More details to come.

Be prepared for winter mountain driving of all sorts and pay extra attention in the transition from the rain in town to the snow on the mountain. It’s best to take your time, be cautious and we’ll see you when you get here.

 

PRESIDENT’S WEEKEND TIPS FOR A SMOOTH HOLIDAY WEEKEND

 

FREE SKIING FRIDAY FOR THOSE WHO RENT SATURDAY

If you’re planning to ski and rent equipment from Mt. Bachelor on Saturday, head up to the mountain Friday afternoon instead. Pay for your Saturday rentals and use them Friday afternoon – for free! Better yet, we’ll also toss in a free lift ticket for Friday afternoon! You can also keep your rentals with you Friday night so you can skip the Saturday morning lines at the rental shop and head straight to the chairlift.

BUY LIFT TICKETS, RENTALS AND LESSONS IN TOWN

Save time by visiting our sales offices in Bend or Sunriver the day prior to your Mt. Bachelor visit. The Bend office, at 531 SW 13th Street, Bend OR, is open 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. daily. Our Sunriver office at 57100 Beaver Dr #26, Sunriver, OR 97707 is open 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Thursday, February 16 to Saturday, February 25. At either location, you can purchase lift tickets for the next day, reserve a ski or snowboard lesson and begin the equipment rental process. By visiting one of these locations the day prior, you can significantly speed up your experience at the mountain the next day.

EARLY OPENING THIS WEEKEND

Our Mountain Gateway sales center in the West Village base area will open at 7:30 a.m. this Saturday and Sunday. This is where you can buy or pick-up lift tickets, rentals and lessons. We strongly recommend an early arrival if you’re renting equipment or taking a lesson. Check-in lines can get quite long for those who arrive after 9:00 a.m. Also, breakfast is served at Cocoa’s Café in West Village Lodge starting at 7:30 a.m. Arrive early, get checked-in, enjoy breakfast and be ready to ski or ride when the lifts open at 9:00 a.m.

WEEKEND BLACKOUT FOR SELECT TICKETS AND PASSES

This weekend, being President’s Weekend, is a blackout period for 12 Day Passes, 4-Passes and SKI OR RIDE IN 5 participants. Other pre-purchased discounted lift tickets may also be invalid to use this weekend as well. Note that the blackout period only includes Saturday and Sunday.
