Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Powder prep in effect! Over the next three’ish days we are expecting to see a foot plus each day. What does this mean for mountain operations and skiers and riders this weekend?
Skiers’ responsibility starts at home and on the way to the mountain. Pack the right gear, bring your phone, carpool with your friends, be patient on snowy roads and make your plan for the day before you hop on the lifts. A few high-fives and good stoke tunes for the drive up are also encouraged!
Operations teams will be working through the night grooming, plowing roads, prepping in all ways possible to set the village up for success at opening on Saturday. Stay tuned to any operating updates on the conditions page and at the lift signs at the base of each lift.
Obey all closures. Keep the bigger picture in mind that there will be plenty of refills on open slopes. With the amount of snow coming in with winds there will be drifting and loading. Ski Patrol will be using explosives to reduce avalanche danger before opening. In case of an emergency, call #541-693-0911.
Friends on a pow day – that’s the Mt. Bachelor way. Ski or ride with a partner. This doesn’t mean, “I’ll meet you at the bottom of Skyliner!” This does mean you stay in auditory and visual contact and regroup at various points on your run.
With new low density snow comes a reminder and a responsibility to understand Tree Well and Snow Immersion Hazards. If planning to ski Cloudchaser East Bowls, it’s recommended to ski with a shovel, transceiver and probe.
High clearance / AWD vehicles are recommended for travel to the mountain on Saturday as we are expecting heavy snow accumulation in the parking lots during the day.
Thank you Mother Nature! On the other side of this storm we will be looking at 100% terrain opening and making plans for our 100 inch party.
Please be aware and respectful that our Winter Uphill Travel Policy is currently in effect. Check our Hike Zone status in Lifts & Terrain section below to view which routes are currently open.
Have fun, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
