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

Good Morning!

The mountain sits under clear and calm skies and is moonlight from a still mostly full moon on Wednesday morning. We are expecting another beautiful day here at Mt. Bachelor with plenty of sunshine and mild weather to come and spring-like conditions out on the slopes. Temperatures barely dipped below freezing overnight and are in the low 30’s to start the day off. We should see a daytime high in the low 40’s come by the afternoon and the winds are forecasted to be light to moderate. With sweatshirt weather back be sure to add some skiing/riding into your midweek plans and come soak in some high altitude sunshine today!

When Summit opens, fantastic views and unparalleled run options are abundant. 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 Wednesday 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!
