Conditions Report

Saturday February 25, 2017 Last update 03:58 p.m.


Wrapping up a spectacular day on the mountain. Mostly sunny skies, light winds and amazing snow conditions. This afternoon’s clouds didn’t slow us from having our entire network of lifts spinning on Saturday. Sunday looks like another fabulous day on the mountain with another blast of snow forecasted to arrive right around lift opening tomorrow. We’ll have our entire lower mountain ready to go and we’ll wait to see what Mother Nature has planned for the top. It’s going to be another busy day, get an early start and have fun when you get here.

We are happy to welcome the 2017 Special Olympics Oregon Winter State Games to Mt. Bachelor this weekend. Alpine and Nordic athletes will be competing in a number of events on the mountain Sunday.

While the roads may have cleared in some areas, other sections are still seeing tricky driving conditions, please be careful on your ride up. The parking lots are also going to be slippery this morning and don't forget carpoolers, with 4 or more in a vehicle, get preferred parking, when spots are available. Plan ahead, be patient and most importantly, enjoy yourself when you get here!
