Conditions Report: Thursday, April 5th 2018, 6:00 am

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

It is a wet and blustery April morning but the groomers are hard at work putting down plenty of corduroy on the front and east sides. On Thursday, the wet weather will continue with snow levels reaching over 7,000’, moderate winds, and temperatures hitting the upper 30s. Even though this storm is on the warmer side of things, a cold and active weather system is lining up for the weekend that could help the snowpack with several inches of snow, fingers crossed! Due to the current rain showers, the west side terrain (Outback and Northwest) will be closed Thursday for guest safety and snow preservation. Spring in Central Oregon has a wide variety of weather on any given day and we could see some new snow on Thursday afternoon!

Also, remember that Spring Passes are valid to use. Ski or ride every day until our planned closing date of Sunday, May 27.


Finally, as we transition deeper into spring, it’s that time of year when we must say goodbye for the season to some of our lifts and lodge facilities. Our goal is to maximize the amount of open terrain, and our plan is to keep all 4,318 acres in play each day the weather permits in April. The following operational changes are now in effect:

Sunrise Lodge and parking are closed for the season, but the Sun Bar will be open for beverages and refreshments on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays through April 15 (weather permitting). Start your day at West Village or at the Skyliner parking lot (if you already have a valid ticket or pass for the day).
Rainbow and Carrousel Chairs are closed for the season. Beginner terrain is available from the Sunshine Accelerator lift at West Village.
Westside terrain is accessed exclusively by Northwest lift, with Outback standing by as an available alternate if Northwest is weathered-out.
