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.
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 will come!
