Conditions Report: Saturday, December 9th 2017, 5:56 am

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


The 4 Day Pass is back. One of our most popular passes, the 4 Day Pass allows for four days of skiing or riding during the 2017-18 winter season (subject to holiday blackout dates). At $289, it’s like getting four days for the price of three! The 4 Day Pass is only available during a 96 Hour Sale – underway now and ending at noon on Monday, December 11. This is the final time the 4 Day Pass will be released this season, so act now and enjoy four days of skiing and riding this winter at Mt. Bachelor.



Sunny skies, mild temps, no lift lines and a fantastic network of groomed runs were the name of the game today. Reports around the mountain had the terrain off of Skyliner lift was riding fast, soft and fun! Rainbow over to Pine Marten lifts are on the schedule this weekend, with the anticipation that the eastside groomers may be the best place to start in the morning until the sun warms up the rest of the hill. We are excited to be hosting the USASA slalom and giant slalom races this Saturday, out of the Pine Marten event arena; so please use caution around the race area, and come cheer on our Oregon youth! With limited off trail access available, there will naturally be more skiers/riders on the groomers, so please keep a lookout for your fellow snow sport enthusiast and remember to ride in control, and slow down. Also, as early season snow conditions exist, be aware of marked and unmarked obstacles on and off groomed runs. Come on up for some fun in the sun this weekend, at Mt. Bachelor!

The Sunrise lodge and parking lot will be closed this weekend. All services will be provided out of West Village base area and lodge.

Snowblast Tubing returns Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for tow-up family fun.

Sled Dog rides are gearing up for another great year, call 541-382-1709 to book your sled dog adventure!


There are runs that are well-covered and groomed nightly, such as Leeway, Thunderbird, Olympian, Skyliner liftline below the Getback, Marshmallow, I-5 and Lower Carnival. There are other runs that do not have adequate snow coverage yet to groom, such as West Boundary, Iceberg and Tippytoe. And there is a third set of runs that is marginally groomable, such as DSQ, Cliffhanger, Old Skyliner and Coffee. In order to groom these runs, which have stump fields, small trees and rock outcroppings either poking through the snow or hidden just beneath the snow surface, we must gather snow from areas farther away and haul it in to patch the trouble spots. This is a slow and inefficient process, which is why we can’t get to each of these runs every night. We recognize the importance of providing you with as long a grooming list as possible each morning and we’ll continue to make it a priority to invest in as much snow-hauling as we can accomplish each night. Thanks for your patience during this dry spell. Snowier days will come!
