Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
A fabulous spring day on Mt. Bachelor Monday with more in store for the first half of the work week. Tomorrow looks to be another killer day of spring skiing and riding with forecasts again calling for clear skies and mild temps. The melt-freeze cycle is in effect with firm conditions to start and a gradual softening as the day progresses. The areas more exposed to sun and lower on the mountain soften quicker while upper mountain terrain and those areas in the shade or facing away from the sun, take longer to make the transition. It will be hard and fast groomers to start giving way to some super fun spring corn as well as some of that buttery corduroy for those knee dragging turns. One thing is for sure, it will be a lot of fun, and please don’t forget your sunscreen.
Starting today, the Summit backside and the lower Northwest, Outback and Cloudchaser areas will no longer be accessible, but more than 2,000 acres will remain open – including Cow’s Face down to the Sunrise Getback (to Skyliner lift) and the upper Northwest area from Summit-top to the “21 Road” (to West Village). Please be aware of the adjusted ski area boundary and do not enter any closed areas.
We’re open every day from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. through Sunday, May 28. Spring lift ticket prices are in effect. As a general reminder, our beginner areas are closed for the season, so all skiers and snowboarders should feel comfortable riding the more-difficult “blue square” terrain in order to enjoy their day on the snow. View our Springtacular page to read more about what’s open this spring.
Looking ahead to our Finale Weekend, we hope you can join us May 27-28 for a season-ending celebration. The BrewSki beer festival is on tap both days, while the North American Pond Skimming Championships takes place on Sunday, May 28. Participation in the pond skim is limited to the first 100 entrants. Sign up now to reserve your chance to win a 2017-18 Full Season Pass!
