Conditions Report: Friday, April 7th 2017, 6:09 am

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

What started out as a blustery, snowy morning turned into a beautiful spring day as precipitation tapered, clouds parted and the sun made an appearance by the afternoon. But winter isn’t singing her final swan song just yet. This weather system is set to return this evening bringing us the whole winter storm kit and caboodle – a drop in temps, gusty winds, and of course, a healthy dose of powder. With it likely for us to get a few inches on the slopes by morning, you can expect miles of soft corduroy and fresh powder for Friday. Though, do come geared up for storm riding tomorrow as we’re expecting to experience strong winds right off the bat and should see periods of heavier snowfall in between lighter showers. Our lift maintenance team plans to assess conditions on our westside lifts first thing in the morning to see if wind and weather will permit operations – be sure to check back for the latest updates!

With the reprieve in winter weather, the roads and parking lots are slippery and will be challenging throughout this storm cycle. Please come prepared for variable road conditions by driving a properly equipped vehicle, but more importantly, take your time. 

For all of you that are looking to get in those late afternoon spring turns, Pine Marten lift will be running until 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. All season passes and lift tickets purchased for Saturday will be valid to use, and we will also offer a special ‘Twilight Ticket’ on sale for $25, valid from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. 

Stoke levels are high for this weekend where we’ll bring the surf to the mountain for the legendary Gerry Lopez Big Wave Challenge, kicking off tomorrow, Friday, April 7.  We have a slew of activities on deck, but not to be missed is watching snowboarders rip on a series of wave-like features as a panel of judges score riders on everything from style and flow to best wipeout! You can sneak a peek of competitors taking practice laps on the course tomorrow or hold out for the main events on Saturday and Sunday. Following the competitions on both days, join us for a luau with traditional Hawaiian grub and live music in the West Village base area. Clear your calendars because this weekend is sure to be a blast. Aloha!
