Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Carpoolers, with 4 or more in a vehicle, get free preferred parking when available. Carpooling is a great way to help beat the morning rush. Be prepared for winter mountain driving of all sorts and pay extra attention in the transition from the wet conditions in town to snow on the mountain. It’s best to take your time, be cautious and we’ll see you when you get here.
The Red Chair Rally is on for today. Prizes, giveaways and tasting from our friends and Deschutes Brewery. Check it out 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. over at our Red Chair.
A note about “Lift Drip”
With snow in the forecast along with temperatures between 26 and 32 degrees, these types of days are when “lift drip” can occur. Lift drip results when water mixes with dirt and cinder that accumulates in the haul ropes and lift components. We see this problem on our staff’s uniforms and have had good results with stain removers like Shout Advanced Action Gel. Check the tags on your clothing for specific instructions about your gear.
PRESIDENT’S WEEKEND TIPS FOR A SMOOTH HOLIDAY WEEKEND
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. on 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.
