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

Spring skiing and riding at its finest on Tuesday with bluebird skies, a killer late season snowpack and still over 2000 acres to tear into. Soft spring conditions with playful corn and a network of smooth corduroy laid down by our grooming team made for a stellar day on the hill. Forecasts are calling for a cooling off from our Summer weather over the next few days but we’ll stay in Spring skiing mode. It might be a bit firmer to start in the morning but it will soften into those playful shreddable conditions as the day moves along. Skiing this time of year, there is always that “magic hour” when we lose that morning firmness and before it gets gooey. This morning’s magic hour began when lifts started spinning and we should see that shift a little later for the next couple of days. It will be another day of fun on the mountain, we’ll see you when you get here.

The Summit backside and the lower Northwest, Outback and Cloudchaser areas are no longer accessible, though there is still ample terrain 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!
