Conditions Report: Sunday, May 14th 2017, 6:23 am

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

While summery temps, sunshine and corn snow are generally what we like to see this time of year, we can’t complain about slashing through the half foot of fresh powder that’s recently stacked up. We had a good ‘ole throwback to deep winter conditions on the mountain today and intermittent snowfall is projected to carry on through this evening, potentially bringing us another inch or two by morning. Sunday’s forecast calls for a few snow showers to start, but fair weather, temps in the thirties and low winds to see us through the majority of the day. As for underfoot, you can expect conditions to be nothing short of prime – soft, packed powder on the groomers and playful powdery windlips off-piste. Given the weather forecast, there is a 50/50 chance Summit will operate on Sunday. Our crews will assess conditions in the morning and continue to monitor it throughout the day.

Keep in mind that roads may be icy and snow covered as you approach the mountain in the morning. Please come prepared for winter conditions by driving a properly equipped vehicle and taking your time on the way up. 

The Summit backside and the lower Northwest, Outback and Cloudchaser areas are no longer accessible, though we still have more than 2,000 acres 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). Be aware of adjusted ski area boundaries and significant cut-banks off the “21 Road”.  Please 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!
