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

Good Morning & Happy Friday!

Another Friday and here comes another shakeup to spring-like weather conditions – Mother Nature has been playing the same game for the last few weeks now and always finding a way to refresh the slopes with snow for the weekend. We notice high cloud cover in the sky and colder temperatures in the pre-dawn hours this morning with the day’s forecast calling for clouds to build and temperatures to remain cold. The snow surface took a fairly firm set overnight and will be skiing/riding fast with sharp edges being your friend today. Snowfall is expected to start around 6:00 p.m. this evening and continue most of the weekend, the final week of “winter” is looking to deliver some goods and we’ll take it. Come on up and kick off the weekend early with some fast laps and get those snow dances going!  

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 or Healy Heights. 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 Friday 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!
