Good morning shredders! Here is your daily dose of Mt. Bachelor conditions:
It was a wet night up here at Mt. Bachelor with rain present for most of the night before switching over to snow around 5 a.m. As a result the snow surface is going to fluctuate pretty dramatically across the mountain today. Most areas will be heavily saturated with dense snow pack with heavy fresh snow on top while other areas will on have dense snow on top of saturated groomers. Mountain operation teams are doing everything they can to give us a chance to still have fun in the mountains – Grooming crews worked diligently through the night to keep the slopes refreshed and lay down corduroy paths for us today. Lift Maintenance crews are out in force this morning working to remove the various forms of precipitation that has accumulated on the lifts and get them spinning.
It’s going to be a “see-how-this-goes” kind of day with the forecast calling for snow this morning, but Mother Nature seems to be going off script today, so we will see. Temperatures are expected to rise into the low 30’s by the afternoon and winds will likely be moderate.
Keep an eye on this page as we go through the day for the latest updates and the most up to date lift status.
Helpful Tricks and Tips
With new snow comes a reminder and a responsibility to understand Tree Well and Snow Immersion Hazards. Please stay up on good safety practices and always ski or ride with a buddy in eyesight/ if you are headed off-trail.
