Conditions Report: Wednesday, February 22nd 2017, 6:27 am

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

This storm made for quite a doozy Tuesday on the slopes, but 24 hours-worth of straight pow delivery is helping make up for the wild weather. The steady snowfall we’ve seen all day is forecasted to taper off this evening shifting into scattered snow showers for the rest of the week. But with the rate at which snow is currently coming down, it’s pretty likely we’ll pick up a few more inches by opening tomorrow! While winds were a force to be reckoned with today, throwing us off our usual program for most of the morning, gusts eased up by midday and will continue to temper down through this evening and into Wednesday. Expect to see heavy drifting as well as windscoured terrain as a result. Overall, it’s looking like there are solid conditions in store for tomorrow – cloudy skies but improved visibility, and calmer breezes with passing flurries. We’ll be back to our normal operations for Wednesday, from Cloudchaser over to Outback spinning first thing and Northwest quick to follow. Given the westside lifts have been closed for the past two days, you can expect one thing’s for sure, the 2+ feet we’ve received in the past 72 hrs is going to make for some killer turns! Epic conditions are here, don’t miss it.

We’ll be in storm mode up here all week making conditions on the roads and in the parking lots challenging. Please come prepared for winter storm conditions by driving a properly equipped vehicle and taking it easy on your way up – roads have been considerably slippery and snow covered. For those of you who are looking to hop between the West Village and Sunrise base areas, we have our Interlodge Shuttle running everyday this week. 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. Plan ahead, get an early start, be patient and most importantly, have a rippin’ good time when you get here!
