Tubing Information

Every year at this time we must recognize the inevitable changing of the seasons. We're fortunate that we have a consistently deep snowpack that allows us to operate deeper into the Spring than all but a handful of ski areas around the world. But with the changing of the seasons and warmer weather in the lowlands, playing in the snow becomes less desirable for many.

Our goal is to keep as much terrain open as possible - as long as is reasonable possible. To that end, more than 95% of our 3,683 lift-served acres will remain open daily, weather permitting. But to best match our operations with the historical dwindling of attendance this time of year, we will operate in our "Spring mode" for the remainder of the 2013-2014 winter season:

  • Lift operting hours are now 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. daily.
  • Regularly scheduled lifts will include Pine Marten, Skyliner, Northwest and Summit, weather permitting. Outback will be maintained as a ready alternate. Beginner lifts and terrain are closed for the season; all guests should be of low-intermediate or better in ability in order to enjoy the Spring experience.
  • Lift Tickets and Equipment Rentals are available at reduced Spring rates.
  • The Mt. Bachelor Shuttle operates on revised Spring schedule.
  • Parking is available at West Village and the Skyliner lift.
  • Otter Mountain Childcare and group Snowsports lessons are no longer offered. Private lessons are available by reservation - call 1-800-829-2442 to book.

Ironically, just as we switch into our Spring mode, this week's weather forecast indicates that Mother Nature wants to hang on to winter. It looks like there could be a couple of powder days on the way this week! That's why were going to keep Outback lift on "standby" for the time being. If Summit is weathered-out and it's a quality powder day, then we might add Outback to the matrix as a Summit substitute. So this week's plan will be to run Northwest & Summit on sunny days and Northwest & Outback on quality powder days. But if it's wet day, then lift operations will probably be limited to just Pine Marten & Skyliner.

All the above info is subject to change, but that's our plan at this point. We hope you can make your own plans to be here for some spring skiing or riding... whether it be under the sun or in the fresh snow that is on the way!
