Conditions Report: Tuesday, March 10th 2020, 6:00 am

Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:

Good Morning!

A full moon shines down on the slopes as the snow cats continue to print fresh corduroy all over the mountain! The forecast for Tuesday has us returning back to the spring like conditions. Not a cloud is in sight, so a sunny day looks to be in sight. Temperatures are starting out chilly, but will slowly rise throughout the day, ending up in the high 30’s by the afternoon. There’s only a slight breeze out on the slopes and should not get any stronger than that today. With Tuesday shaping up to be a beautiful day to be out on the slopes, come on up to mountain this morning and take a lap off the cone in the moonlight!

When Summit is open, the lift always supplies fantastic views and unparalleled run options. With the way that Mother Nature has shaped our winter season so far, some extra caution needs to be taken if you choose to venture to the top of the volcano. Unlike the mid and lower parts of the mountain that has been masterly groomed, only a few select runs are able to be groomed. With conditions being widely variable and unpredictable off the groomed trails, we highly recommend taking runs on either Beverly Hills, Healy Heights or Wanoga. These runs have been groomed overnight and will supply the most enjoyable laps!

Groomer’s Choice: “Advice straight from the snowcat operators on the most enjoyable terrain of the day”

Check back Tuesday morning for the day’s recommendations.

On a standard night of operation our grooming team will lay down fresh corduroy on over 50 trails around the mountain plus terrain parks. Two shifts of operators work to make this happen P.M Shift (4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.) and A.M. Shift (12:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.) We update our grooming report (in the Lifts & Terrain info below) every morning by 7:00 a.m. and indicate which trails were groomed on each shift. 

►The trails listed above show our recommendations for optimal surface conditions   

Drive safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
