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

Good Morning!

We are seeing a clear sky this morning as we get excited for another day of awesome skiing and riding up at Mt. Bachelor! Temperatures are slightly colder than we have seen the last few mornings with most of the mountain sitting in the 20’s. The outlook for the day ahead appears to be following the forgoing spring-like conditions we have seen this week, with possibly a firmer touch to the snow out of the gate. Sunshine is set to return, and soften the snow by the afternoon, we should be sitting in the high 30’s or low 40’s before too long with light to moderate winds – the makings for an enjoyable day of lapping your favorite runs with your friends!   

When Summit open, 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 Thursday 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!
