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

Snow has returned to the Cascades and it is a welcome sight to see old man winter back in action! Groomed runs got a nice dose of snow today, and will provide a great refresher to the hill for tomorrow morning. Trails will continue to be thin in spots, so please keep a look out for marked and unmarked obstacles as you explore the mountain. In order to reduce our carbon footprint, we are offering close in parking to the first 100 vehicles that have four or more people in it! Also, at our Mountain Gateway building at West Village Base Area, we are offering free Demos to the first 250 people that sign up! So get here early with your carpool, demo the latest gear, and help us celebrate the return of winter this weekend, at Mt. Bachelor.

More good news… Sunrise Lodge and parking are now open for the season , with food & beverage, ticket and rental services available at our east side base. New this year, lessons are headquartered at West Village, so plan to start your day at our primary base area if you’d like to improve your skiing or snowboarding skills with one of our professional coaches. Up at Pine Marten Lodge, Scapolo’s restaurant is now open for seven-day-a-week operation, while Sparks Cafe opens for the season on Saturday.

On the mountain, Rainbow Chair has been added to the daily lift schedule . Be sure to take a lap on I-5 run – it’s been home to the deepest and best snow on the mountain recently. While you’re out that way, check out the Dirksen Derby. The competition is full, but some of the world’s best snowboarders will be racing down hand-crafted courses through the trees.

And… perhaps the best news… we’re moving forward with plans to open Cloudchaser lift on Thursday, December 21 . We’ve deliberately chosen that date based on the forecast of significant new snow Tuesday and Wednesday next week. Please read the detailed mountain conditions update from John McLeod, Mt. Bachelor’s president and general manager, for more insight into what we’re doing to expand our terrain offerings – including some work in the Outback area.

Thanks for your patience during this dry spell. We’re all eager for the new snow which will allow us to open significantly more terrain as we head into the holidays!

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

Change is in the air this morning as the days of sunshine is stepping aside for a very welcome blast of winter weather. Groomed runs will still be the hot ticket with our mountain crews laying down that smooth corduroy overnight. Snow is in the forecast for later in the day so expect possible storm conditions as we head into the afternoon. We welcome the arrival of everybody participating in the 10th Annual Dirksen Derby this weekend, check that out over at our Sunrise Lodge and Rainbow Chairlift. It’s going to be a great start to an awesome weekend, drive safe on your way up and we’ll see you on the hill.

Conditions Report: Thursday, December 14th 2017, 6:09 am

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

Another great day to crush groomers in the sun up on Mt. Bachelor. Spring time conditions have been making for some fun skiing. The mountain crews were at it again last night and the trails are holding up nicely without too many thin spots. Mornings are faster with lighter, responsive snow giving way to softer cruising in the afternoon. It has been remarkably good skiing this week even without fresh snow and today should be no different. Please be aware of marked and unmarked obstacles as you enjoy the hill. A change up in the weather pattern and fresh snow may be headed our way tomorrow morning! A few new inches will be greatly appreciated. Pack sunscreen today and think snow.

Today, parking is available in the Skyliner lot and all services are being provided in the West Village.

Dirksen Derby 10 weekend is approaching!! We are stoked that the Dirksen Derby is back after taking a season off and are ready to blow it up for its 10th year! The race will be taking place Friday December 15th – Sunday December 17th. The course is located directly under Rainbow chairlift so we will be basing all event operations out of Sunrise base area.

Our planned lift package starting tomorrow is Rainbow, Sunrise, Skyliner, Sunshine, and Pine Marten. The Carrousel chair will be turning Saturday and Sunday. Snowblast Tubing will open tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday with tow-up action.

Starting tomorrow, Sunrise Lodge and West Village will be open for all your skiing and riding needs. Come up early this weekend and have breakfast with us!

 

GROOMING NOTE

There are runs that are well-covered and groomed nightly, such as Leeway, Thunderbird, Olympian, Skyliner liftline below the Getback, Marshmallow, I-5 and Lower Carnival. There are other runs that do not have adequate snow coverage yet to groom, such as West Boundary, Iceberg and Tippytoe. And there is a third set of runs that is marginally groomable, such as DSQ, Cliffhanger, Old Skyliner and Coffee. In order to groom these runs, which have stump fields, small trees and rock outcroppings either poking through the snow or hidden just beneath the snow surface, we must gather snow from areas farther away and haul it in to patch the trouble spots. This is a slow and inefficient process, which is why we can’t get to each of these runs every night. We recognize the importance of providing you with as long a grooming list as possible each morning and we’ll continue to make it a priority to invest in as much snow-hauling as we can accomplish each night. Thanks for your patience during this dry spell. Snowier days are coming!

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

The ski tans are coming in nicely here at Mt. Bachelor. Mild winter temps and sunny skies expected again today. However, a change up in the weather pattern and fresh snow may be headed our way as early as Friday! We consider ourselves lucky to ride out the high pressure weather system with just enough snow to keep grooming and skiing. There will be plenty of corduroy out there to lay into and the marked trails are holding up throughout the day. Our mountain crews have kept the snow pack in amazing shape but please be aware of marked and unmarked obstacles as you enjoy the hill. Keep your snowy thoughts coming, and head on up to Mt. Bachelor for some midweek turns.

THE LATEST UPDATE

As the weekend comes to a close, we had a great time in the sun with mild temperatures and superb groomer riding. As we look ahead to the workweek, we will have sunny skies and balmy temperatures until our next cold front moves in by the end of the week. Keep your fingers crossed that it will bring us some snow that will allow us to open up more terrain. While we wait for this high pressure pattern to move out, beat the inversion in town and come up to the mountain for endless sunshine and Cascade views. As always, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for marked and unmarked obstacles, as well as fellow riders, and don’t venture too far off of the named trails. The terrain park crew will be adding new features to Cannon Beach this week and will potentially open up more terrain park options once conditions permit. Thank you to everyone who made it up to Mt. Bachelor this weekend, and keep those snow dances coming our way!

The Sunrise lodge and parking lot will remained closed until next weekend. All services will be provided out of West Village base area and lodge.

Snowblast Tubing returns from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for tow-up family fun.

THE LATEST UPDATE

What a great day out on the hill! Many reports around the mountain said that the eastside was riding great, especially off of Rainbow chair. The snowpack help up surprisingly well, even with this lingering high pressure weather pattern that is bringing us these mild conditions. Even though the air temperature is warm, the snow was riding fast and smooth all day, and wasn’t ‘sticky’, like we generally experience during spring months. We will have Rainbow over to Pine Marten spinning for Sunday with the grooming team doing their best to get corduroy laid down for us by opening tomorrow. The named trails will be the place to be Sunday, and with a busy weekend up here, a friendly reminder to please ride in control and maintain safe speeds on the hill. G Bots and the Journeymen are rocking the stage in The Clearing Rock Bar, so come join us for some 10 Barrel Après Ski Music Series action! Sunday will be a repeat of today, so grab your sunscreen and head on up to Mt. Bachelor for some Sunday Funday!

The Sunrise lodge and parking lot will be closed this weekend. All services will be provided out of West Village base area and lodge.

Snowblast Tubing returns for Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for tow-up family fun.
