Conditions Report: Thursday, January 4th 2018, 6:00 am

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

Well, it may be a challenging morning. A little rain might cause some delays on lift openings and terrain closures. However, the groomers were out last night working hard. Mild temps and a bit breezy today with hopes of the precipitation turning to snow late morning. Keep checking this page for the latest conditions and operational updates.

Please note that if you would like to access Cloudchaser, we ask that you ride Sunrise or Rainbow and take Bluebird to access the lift. The foot traffic trail from Sunrise base area is currently closed. 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 day making turns at Mt. Bachelor.

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 8:30 a.m. Come up early, beat the traffic, get a close-in parking spot, enjoy breakfast and load the chair right at opening.

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.
