Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
Good Morning & Happy Friday.
We stayed in a warm and wet pattern overnight and are seeing a mix of slushy snow and icy conditions this morning. Lift Operations will be effected again today with opening delays expected for several lifts as additional icing has occurred on chairlifts and towers.
It is no easy task to break ice free from every chair and tower before being able to get lifts spinning and safely access the mountain terrain. Our Operation Teams are hard at work, doing everything they can to provide a safe and enjoyable experience up here at Mt. Bachelor. Mother Nature really handed us a doozy over the last 48 hours and it will take a little time to get fully operational again.
Temperatures on Friday are expected to warm into the mid 30’s which could help in releasing ice on chairlifts and towers. We are anticipating moderate winds with strong gusts likely at times. The snow surface will be variable and we highly recommend staying on groomed terrain today.
The good news is that the weekend conditions are forecast to be much improved. New snow on Saturday should erase the ice and Sunday is forecast to be a beautiful, sunny day. We hope you’re making plans to join us this weekend, as we celebrate the opening of the Woodward Peace Park and our 22′ Halfpipe on Saturday, followed by a Local’s Only party presented by 10 Barrel Brewing on Sunday at the bottom of Skyliner lift. And it’s all preceded by an Apres Ski Bash at The Commons in downtown Bend Friday night.
Drive safe and see ya on the slopes!
