SPECIAL EVENT TODAY

Old Man Winter just can’t give up as it has started snowing again here on Mt. Bachelor. A great day of powder skiing on the hill and a lot of smiles in the parking lot going home today. Over a foot of new snow in the last 48 hours with another blast arriving this afternoon and forecasts calling for a storm day on Wednesday. This round will again produce significant snowfall totals with the possibility of some breezy conditions that could affect operations tomorrow. Our plan, if conditions permit, is to have available lower mountain lifts from Cloudchaser over to Northwest on the schedule for the morning. It could be another day of fresh tracks and free refills, we’ll see you here.

As the season begins to wind down, some of our operations have changed. Sunrise lift is now closed for the season, but with Cloudchaser and Northwest lifts remaining on the schedule, most of our 4,318 acres are still in play, weather permitting. We also have our West Village Magic Carpet running 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. everyday through the end of April. As long as weather cooperates, staff will be out there loading and unloading guests.  Both a helmet, for all children 17 and under, and a lift ticket are required to use it. Check out our Springtactular page for all the details about what's open, where you can eat, and which types of lessons are still offered as this epic season continues.
