Conditions Report: Thursday, December 28th 2017, 6:00 am

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


It’s a clear, calm, and mild morning here at Mt. Bachelor. Over 30 trails groomed last night and the cats are still working hard to soften things up. Plenty of corduroy this morning and that will be the place to be until the new snow begins to fall. Weather conditions are expected to change late morning. Snow is likely after 10 with mostly cloudy skies but mild temps are forecast all day. Breezy today as the storm moves in but a small price for the fresh snow. This storm is expected to hang around through Friday night and really freshen things up. Remember that early season conditions exist and there are marked and unmarked obstacles, especially off-trail. We strongly recommend that you ski/ride only on the groomed runs.

Arrive early to enjoy the most time on the snow and remember breakfast starts in West Village Lodge at 7:30 a.m. and our Mountain Gateway ticket sales center at West Village opens at 8:00 a.m. Come up early, beat the traffic, get a close-in parking spot, enjoy breakfast and load the chair right at 9:00.  


Tips for Holiday Visitors

Consider eating lunch at our mid-mountain Pine Marten Lodge. It’s the largest lodge at Mt. Bachelor with the most seats & tables. Two restaurants and an espresso shop serve  traditional American fare, Mexican specialties and quick snacks. And if the sun makes an appearance the scenic vistas of the Cascade volcanoes are spectacular from the 7,800 ft. vantage point. For the fastest service and most elbow room in each of our restaurants, plan to eat before 11:30 a.m. or after 1:30 p.m.

If you’re interested in taking ski or snowboard lesson to improve your skills with one of our professional coaches, you’ll want to start your day at West Village – our primary base area. Our lesson programs are exclusively headquartered here during the holiday period.

Parking is free at Mt. Bachelor, but some premium close-in parking spaces are available for $20 at West Village. Look for the signs directing you towards PAY PARKING as you enter the West Village parking area.
