LIMITED OPERATIONS TODAY

The good news is that it's SNOWING! The bad news is that yesterday's and last night's rain took its toll on the snowpack - especially near the base area. Unfortunately, there is not enough snow to allow for additional lift openings today. 

We will be in operation from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the Sunshine Accererator lift serving a terrain park and the Snowblast Tubing Park (walk-up only - no tow service).  Expect early season conditions with bare spots, rocks and other marked & unmarked hazards. All services at West Village, including Gravity School lessons, rentals, Gravity Sports retail, food/beverage and the Mt. Bachelor Shuttle are expected to operate.

The forecast is still calling for additional snow today and tonight... and if we receive the 6-10" that is forecast, there is a good possility that it will be enough for us to open additional lifts on Saturday.  We may not know for sure, however, until early Saturday morning.

We appreciate your patience, understanding and enthusiasm for skiing and snowboarding this weekend and we're doing everything we can to make it happen for you!
