Conditions Report: Tuesday, May 16th 2017, 6:19 am

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

Old Man Winter is putting on a show up here this morning with moderate to heavy snowfall and howling winds. Today is one of those old fashioned storm days, fresh tracks filling in fast and snow conditions straight out of the February playbook. With these strong winds there will be spots that aren’t seeing as much snow as the official totals and plenty of areas on the mountain that will be skiing deeper than they should. These conditions could affect how we operate today and as always we’ll keep you posted as the morning develops. Roads are tricky as you get close to the mountain, please come equipped for winter conditions on the road as well today. Grab your powder gear and head up, we’ll see you when you get here.

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!
