Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
The forecast has delivered as promised — we received about 16″ overnight and the snow is still coming down hard!! Continued, intense snowfall is expected to continue this Sunday through Monday evening and the powder turns will likely the best conditions of the year. Please keep in mind that tree well risk will be very high throughout the storm — be sure to ski/ride with a partner and always keep them in eyesight in the trees. With storm total accumulation expected to be measured in feet instead of inches, the powder today and tomorrow will be deep and plentiful… and so, too, will be the challenges that come with it.
We are in full storm mode with “all hands on deck” (plus some extra). Parking lot snow removal crews have been working throughout the night, but with intense snowfall expected during the day today, our parking lots will rapidly fill with snow and deep drifts are likely to form around each car. You will need a high-clearance vehicle to exit your parking spot. If you don’t have a high-clearance vehicle, please carpool with someone who does… or take the Mt. Bachelor Shuttle. And if chaining-up is required, please do so in designated pull-off areas before the road conditions become more severe further up the highway. Strong winds are possible with this storm as well, which could affect the status of some lifts. Be sure to check this page for the most up to date conditions and lift status throughout the day.
Thank you for your patience during this major storm — on the road, in the parking lots, in the lodges and on the mountain. Stay safe, ski/ride with a partner, and plan for extra travel time. We look forward to seeing you soon!
