Conditions Report: Tuesday, January 16th 2018, 6:24 am

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

We received an inch of snow overnight. The snow is on the heavier side of things, but this weather system is showing a cooling trend with a better period of snow for later in the week. Today’s storm will be making its way out just after opening, with temperatures forecasted in the low 30’s and partly cloudy skies and nearly 2,000 acres of open terrain. Now that the holiday weekend is over it’s time for the locals to come get their fill, with minimal lift lines all day long. Come up and celebrate the return of winter by making some laps this white Tuesday morning.

The only skiing and riding off of Summit is currently confined to the groomed Bev Hills run and the Healy Heights area. Other areas, including the Bowl, the Backside and Cow’s Face, will be closed. Please respect all signage and do not enter a closed area. Note that the uphill travel route to the Summit above Pine Marten lodge will remain CLOSED until that section of the upper mountain is open to downhill skiers/riders. Please read the Uphill Travel page for more information.

Low-snow conditions still exist in areas 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. Have fun and think snow!
