Nordic Conditions Report

Wednesday March 1, 2017 Last update 08:21 a.m.


Nordic Center is OPEN!

March has arrived, in like a lamb, and brings a lovely day of quiet contrasts. Skies are still and mostly gray at the moment, looking to blue up and provide us with a soothing respite from the rather frequent storm cycling that has been 2017. Air now 18 degrees, snow 19.6 degrees and RH 84%.

We are now 98 days into our ski year and have 82 to go before we wrap up our regular season. We picked up 2" new in the last 24 hours, 23" in the last week and 428" at the Base since October 1. Our current compacted base measures 126". That's 10'!

Oh, and about that compacted base? Prime stuff. Dry packed powder corduroy ruling the entire network as our team reports a dry and productive night with the entire network now open for skating and classic skiing. Surface conditions are silky, silky, silky. Nope. No excuses.

Our one and only signature event here at Mount Bachelor Nordic is coming up in just 10 short days and is for all of you who love to go the distance - the Cascade Crest Nordic Ski Marathon & Relay will take place on Saturday, March 11th with races suitable for all ages and abilities. Snow guaranteed this year. Endurance enthusiasts will have their pick of a 10km, 25km, or 50km skate course that will loop out through the US Forest lands beneath Broken Top, drop down to Todd Lake, wind around Zig Zag, and climb back to the Nordic Center. A relay option is also available for you and your favorite ski buddies. Event registration is currently open, though prices jump on Saturday, March 4th, so make sure to register today!

Time to hit the trails. Have fun out there.
