Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Good Morning! A slightly dusting of snow overnight before the clouds cleared out and left behind a beautiful starry sky! The forecast for Sunday has us seeing a mostly clear skies with the possibility of a bluebird morning. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 30’s and winds are anticipated to be light with the occasional moderate breeze. With over 100” of snowfall this month alone and the entire lower mountain open for skiing and riding there is certainly something fun for everyone up here at Mt. Bachelor. Fill this Sunday with some excitement and come join us for some fun on the snow today!
Today will mark the first opportunity this season for Ski Patrol to get up to Summit. Opening the lift for the first time in a season involves a significant amount of setup work, including snow safety assessments and avalanche reduction work, ski area boundary marking, unloading ramp construction, and other miscellaneous tasks. We don’t have a specific opening projection for Summit just yet, but know that we’re working as quickly as we can. We want to ski/ride up there too! But when it does open, be advised that Summit will be for experts only. There will not be any grooming and the snow depth & density will be highly variable.
A few reminders as we head towards a busy weekend:
Helpful Tricks and Tips
If going off trails sounds great, take a mate! This means staying within 1-2 turns of your buddy, always be in visual and auditory contact.
Shovel, transceiver, probe? Based on the volume of snow and type of snow we’ve received it’s recommended to ski / ride with a shovel / transceiver / probe when off any maintained trails like East Bowls off Cloudchaser and West Bowls off Northwest, and all those tree stashes in between.
Deep Snow and Tree Well hazards exist on mountain so take personal responsibility seriously – seriously!
Play Forever Carpool Parking: Today, vehicles with 4+ passengers will get preferential V.I.P parking in West Village base area.
