Conditions Report: Sunday, December 10th 2017, 6:02 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.



What a great day out on the hill! Many reports around the mountain said that the eastside was riding great, especially off of Rainbow chair. The snowpack help up surprisingly well, even with this lingering high pressure weather pattern that is bringing us these mild conditions. Even though the air temperature is warm, the snow was riding fast and smooth all day, and wasn’t ‘sticky’, like we generally experience during spring months. We will have Rainbow over to Pine Marten spinning for Sunday with the grooming team doing their best to get corduroy laid down for us by opening tomorrow. The named trails will be the place to be Sunday, and with a busy weekend up here, a friendly reminder to please ride in control and maintain safe speeds on the hill. G Bots and the Journeymen are rocking the stage in The Clearing Rock Bar, so come join us for some 10 Barrel Après Ski Music Series action! Sunday will be a repeat of today, so grab your sunscreen and head on up to Mt. Bachelor for some Sunday Funday!

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 for 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!
