Conditions Report: Tuesday, January 23rd 2018, 6:01 am

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

A crisp morning at Mt. Bachelor that feels like a good day for riding. Cold temps overnight kept the snow in fine condition and our grooming teams have pushed around miles of powdery corduroy. The trails are dry and soft making for quiet turns and easy gliding. Skiing off of Cloudchaser is particularly soft and smooth. Snow is forecast for later this morning and could possibly hang around a few days with nice looking snow totals. Our attempt to open Northwest lift for the season didn’t go quite as planned Monday. We’re optimistic for a different type of day coming up today – one with less rime and more snow. Please keep an eye on this page for condition and lift status updates. Once weather and conditions allow for Northwest to open, remember that low-snow conditions exist on that part of the mountain. Consider the trees to be off-limits and stay on the designated runs for the safest experience. The West Bowls and glades down to the catchline will remain closed until we receive more snow.

Overall, it’s looking like a stormy and snowy week at Mt. Bachelor. That’s fantastic news for base-building, snow quality and powder-riding, but strong winds, low visibility and riming/icing typically accompany this type of weather pattern. Be prepared for winter conditions at the mountain, on the road and in the parking lots. Stay safe and have fun!
