Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
We are back in the ball game with over a foot of new snow in the last 48 hours, it should be lots of fun skiing and riding today on Mt. Bachelor. Cold temps keeping our snowpack in great shape with winds that should allow us to get most of our scheduled lifts spinning this morning. We’ll keep you posted.
Before the deep powder arrived, we had a severe ice storm Saturday and Saturday night. This produced ice 6-10″ thick on the Outback and Northwest lifts. Crews have already started the de-icing and clean-up project on Outback, but some of that work will continue into today. Outback’s opening is projected for mid-late morning, wind permitting. Northwest lift will be a greater challenge, as winds gusted above 100 m.p.h. for more than 18 hours at the top of of that lift during the storm. The severe conditions prevented us from traveling to the top terminal to assess the lift’s condition. Now that the wind has backed-off, our plan is to head there thismorning to begin the de-icing and clean-up process. We expect this will take most of the day.
Our holiday exclusion periods and blackout dates are behind us now, and all 12 Day, 4 Day and Midweek Passes are valid to use. We hope you can spend the Presidents holiday with family and friends riding the best snow of the season (so far) at Mt. Bachelor!
