Conditions Report: Wednesday, March 8th 2017, 6:35 am

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

Wild and windy this morning on the mountain and maybe even a little wet. The weather indicators are really telling the story this morning as temps hover around the freezing mark and gusts are nearing hurricane force on the westside. Another dose of dense pow to start but blustery conditions will affect operations on Wednesday. 

A heads up that Outback lift will be closed for the next few days as we make repairs to a secondary gearbox unit. The part has been purchased from Colorado and is on its way! Upon arrival it should be a quick install, and  if everything goes according to plan we hope to have Outback up and spinning by Saturday. In the meantime, Northwest lift can provide access to all of Outback’s terrain, as long as weather permits.

Being that we are in full on storm mode this week, the roads and parking lots are considerably snow covered and conditions are growing increasingly challenging. Please come prepared for deep winter weather by carrying chains or driving high clearance 4WD vehicles and taking it easy on the way up. Plan ahead, get an early start, be patient and most importantly, have a rippin’ good time when you get here!

Mt. Bachelor is proud to host the USCSA National Championships this week. Collegiate participants, family, volunteers and officials will be here all week in support of alpine racing, freestyle and Nordic events. Complete information about the championships is available on the USCSA website, including information for spectators. The competition venues will include the Thunderbird, Leeway and Midway runs along with the Slopestyle Arena and select Nordic trails. Welcome and good luck!
