Conditions Report: Friday, May 12th 2017, 6:07 am

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

Looks like Old Man Winter is set to make his way back for the weekend, as today’s patchy grey skies and passing spring showers are already getting pushed out by a wintry storm front. Temps have been steadily dropping throughout today and will reach the mid-20’s this evening, meaning this next bout of precipitation will be in the form of snow! Forecast calls for intermittent flurries overnight into Friday, with a good chance of a few inches stacking up on the trails by tomorrow afternoon. Mellow winds are expected to accompany this storm, but still come prepared for low-vis, winter storm-riding conditions. Given the forecast, it is unlikely Summit will be operating on Friday; though our available lower mountain lifts should offer more than enough fresh tracks to get after. Don’t put those powder planks into storage just yet… 

The Summit backside and the lower Northwest, Outback and Cloudchaser areas are no longer accessible, but more than 2,000 acres are 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!
