Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
It’s here… our season finale weekend featuring the inaugural Board, Bike & Brew Festival. If you haven’t heard about it, this is a rare chance to ski or snowboard AND downhill mountain bike… all on the same day! Everyone who has a valid lift ticket or season pass to ski/snowboard can visit the the Mountain Gateway ticket office to receive a FREE bike ticket for Sunshine lift (after signing an Assumption of Risk Agreement). Plus, those who ski/snowboard and mountain bike can pick up a FREE commemorative t-shirt (while supplies last)!
Also on tap is the 10 Barrel beer garden in the base area with live music, the Vibram Sole Factor Tour (get your shoes resoled for the bargain price of $30!), a Stein Hoisting Competition on Saturday (limited space remaining for women; men’s category is full), the North American Pond Skimming Championships on Sunday, and an Instagram contest all weekend with a huge prize package. Check out the complete weekend schedule for all the details.
On the mountain, bare patches and lava rock are increasingly revealing themselves. Consequently, the hike to the Summit peak is now closed for the season, as is all Summit terrain south of Healy Heights. We realize the peak hike is a closing day tradition, but the amount of exposed rock has pinched-off most of the ski routes down from the top. There is still plenty of fun intermediate and advanced terrain to explore elsewhere across the mountain, so long as you carefully watch for obstacles. As a reminder, you might have your OnePass sitting in a winter coat pocket; don’t forget to take it out and bring it with you to the mountain. We don’t want you to waste any ski time by having to pick up a replacement pass.
As the 2017-18 ski and snowboard season draws to a close this weekend, we look forward to hosting you for some final turns and lots of celebratory fun!
