Conditions Report: Thursday, March 2nd 2017, 6:14 am

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

Another killer groomer day with our entire mountain ready to ride first thing Thursday. Partly cloudy skies, light winds and miles of soft untouched corduroy are the plan for today. Forecasts are calling for snow to return on Friday and into the weekend, but there is plenty of carving left to do before that happens. We’ll have Cloudchaser over to Northwest and up to Summit ready to spin this morning and with 4318 acres to explore you’ll find plenty of room to lay some tracks. 

It’s hard to believe that we’ve only just passed the halfway point of the season – the 349″ of snowfall we’ve received since the 1st of December has made this winter feel endless and marks our 4th snowiest three-month winter period on record. Not to mention, this is the first time in Mt. Bachelor’s history that we’ve had three months in a row with more than 100” of snowfall each month. No wonder every day has felt like a powder day this season. And the best news…there’s still much more to come. 

While the roads may have cleared in some areas, sections nearing the mountain are still considerably slippery and snow covered; please come prepared for winter storm conditions by driving a properly equipped vehicle and taking it easy on your way up. Also, tree wells are always a factor but even more so following a storm. Educate yourself on tree well safety and always ski or ride with a partner off piste. Plan ahead, be patient and most importantly, enjoy yourself when you get here!
