Conditions Report: Thursday, January 11th 2018, 6:15 am

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

A snowy, windy morning with almost an inch of heavy snow so far. We expect this storm to hang around through the evening delivering significant accumulation. Higher elevations have gotten more snow in the last 48 hours and conditions are really improving. The grooming team worked all night blending nice, soft corduroy and improving coverage. Buckle up and prepare for a true Pacific Northwest storm day up here. Make sure to check this page for condition updates throughout the day.

Remember that low-snow conditions exist across the mountain. Adjust your speed appropriately to maintain a safe halo from other guests and watch for obstacles. Some will be marked, others not. We recommend skiing/riding only on groomed runs until the snow base deepens.

Also due to low-snow conditions, the Cloudchaser Access trail (from the bottom of Rainbow) is closed. Use Bluebird or High Pressure runs, accessible from most lifts, to access Cloudchaser. Elsewhere around the mountain, Outback is poised to reopen with just a bit of additional new snow on its lower slopes. We are optimistic for that to occur in the coming days. Summit is also getting closer to opening; we’ve been working hard to construct a groomed route down the lift line. As soon as the weather clears and calms, we’ll evaluate Summit to see if we can safely open it for access to the groomed run.

Finally, note that Scapolo’s at Pine Marten Lodge will be closed today, but Pinnacles will remain open for beverages and snacks. Stop by our mid-mountain lodge at the top of the Pine Marten lift to warm up and grab a refreshment.
