Conditions Report: Wednesday, January 3rd 2018, 6:02 am

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

Partly cloudy today and warm but no significant wind forecast. The snow is still skiing well, even though there are some thin and icy patches out there, groomed trails are the best bet. We do have snow forecast towards the end of the week that could bring some fresh stuff. The grooming team was out and about last night laying down plenty of corduroy for us this morning and the marked trails begin to soften midday. Come on up for some midweek skiing as we enjoy the final days of holiday break.

On the snow, please ski/ride with extreme caution, as the snow coverage is very thin in places and there won’t be as much elbow room you might be used to experiencing. That said, bring your patience, your positive attitude and your excitement for a fun-filled day making fresh turns at Mt. Bachelor on 2,000 acres of open terrain.

Tips for Holiday Visitors

Arrive early to enjoy the most time on the snow. 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 opening time.

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 and you are not it the SKI OR RIDE IN 5℠ program, you’ll want to start your day at West Village – our primary base area. Our daily 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.
