Conditions Report: Thursday, February 15th 2018, 6:00 am

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

We got 3 inches of snow Wednesday and the slopes are skiing much softer. The grooming teams have been out all night blending in the new stuff and laying down ample corduroy. There is less wind forecast so we are hopeful about turning Summit and today looks like cool temps with a little more sunshine. Take it easy on the drive up this morning and pack that extra layer. See you out there!


New snow is in the forecast and with comfortably cold weather on the way, the snow surface for Presidents Weekend should be excellent. It’s typically one of our busiest weekends, so here are some tips to help you plan your visit:

Buy tickets and reserve lessons in advance. Visit our OnePass page to buy online at least four days in advance of your visit to save the most money. Those who pre-purchase tickets will have a dedicated (and shorter) line for ticket pick-up at our West Village ticket sales center.
RV parking will be limited this weekend. Spots will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Once they fill (probably Friday night), RVs will be turned away. We apologize for the inconvenience, but during busy holiday weekends we must maintain adequate parking capacity for our day visitors. Visit our RV parking page for more information.
Arrive early. The lifts open at 9:00 a.m., but breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. in West Village Lodge. Ticket sales, rental & lesson services and the Gravity Sports shop open at 8:00 a.m.
Winter is expected to make a come-back for the weekend. Be prepared for winter driving conditions and have a vehicle that is appropriate for deep snow and a slippery road surface.
