Conditions Report: Thursday, January 18th 2018, 6:17 am

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

5 inches of fresh powder overnight! The day is starting out blustery and the temps are expected to drop several degrees by closing. The new snow is surprisingly fluffy given the medium density moisture level and will be great for those back seat pow turns we all love. With wind loading, some sections of the mountain will ski deeper than others. It is forecast to snow all day and over the next few days so it’s definitely go-time at Mt. Bachelor. Today is likely to be a true PNW storm day with high winds and heavy snow, so stay tuned to the conditions page for up to the minute status updates on lifts and weather conditions. Please be prepared for winter conditions on the mountain and on your drive up. Winter is back! Don’t miss out!

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 marked trails while the snow base deepens. Have fun and think snow!
