Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Good morning powder chasers! 10” of freshies fell overnight, and once again refilling yesterday’s tracks and providing boundless powdery laps today! Tuesday’s forecast has us staying in the snow all day and possibly providing close to another foot of snow by the days end. Winds are expected to be lighter than they have been in the previous days but with PNW storms they can sometimes have a mind of its own. The mountain operations crews are out working hard cleaning and preparing the lifts for you this morning, but with receiving 75 inches in the last 7 days, they may incur a few snags here and there. We recommend that you check in on our conditions page though this morning to get the latest information on our conditions and lift operation status.
If you are planning to visit today, keep these things in mind:
Ski/ride with a friend. That’s the Mt. Bachelor way on a pow day. After receiving more than 6 feet of new snow in the last week and the storm not done delivering, please take a moment to refresh your Deep Snow Safety knowledge. This includes Tree Well and Snow Immersion Hazards and how to take proper precautions when skiing/riding off piste.
Please carpool or take the Mt. Bachelor Shuttle. The fewer the number of cars on the road, the better Nokian tires on your car? Good call in this kind of weather. High clearance / AWD vehicles are highly recommended for travel to the mountain. Keep your headlights on and have an adequate amount of fuel to make the full round trip.
Obey all closures. There will be plenty of free refills in open areas today. Hikers and skinners, remember 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.
On the other side of this storm we will be looking at 100% terrain opening. But that will require a couple days of clear and calm weather so we can establish snow-roads, mark boundaries, dig-out lift terminals, and perform snow safety work. In the meantime, enjoy the deep powder and make safe & smart decisions on the roads, in the parking lots and on the mountain.
Have fun, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
