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

May 20, 2020 

Good morning Central OR! What a beautiful morning drive up the Cascades Lakes Highway with a mix of blue skies and pockets of clouds. We look forward to welcoming our passholder community to ski / ride again today! Sunrise is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and Summit chairlift is being assessed by Mountain Operations as there is a fog capping the Summit. Stay tuned to the report for updates. 

Again, we would like to thank our passholders for being mindful and respectful of the Reservation Check-In process, new safety protocols, and physical distancing guidelines. For guests with reservations Wednesday, please enter through the northern end of the Skyliner parking lot (winter exit – you’ll see signage), and be sure to bring your Reservation, ID, and Season Pass for smooth entry and smooth lift access. We’ll see you on the mountain!

May 16-May 24, 2020 

Mt. Bachelor is thrilled to offer existing 2019/20 passholders (Outplay 365, Full Season, Midweek, 12-Day and 4-Day passholders) the opportunity to close down the season with some final spring turns. This limited-access opening will conclude our downhill season and on May 25, Mt. Bachelor will open for uphill travel.

In alignment with our suspended operations messaging from March 14, 2020 – the safety of our guests, staff, and broader community remain our highest priority.
