Conditions Report: Friday, March 3rd 2017, 5:54 am

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

Another blast from off the Pacific headed our way, and by Friday afternoon we will be in storm mode. Groomers will be the name of the game to start as we await this next round of significant snowfall. With a slight warm up yesterday we will see a firming snowpack this morning with super fast corduroy ready to edge into. By midday we should see some precip on the mountain along with a potential for gusty conditions that could affect our operations. We will have our lower mountain lifts from Cloudchaser over to Northwest on the schedule first thing 

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 during and after 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!
