Tubing Information

Good morning and Happy Easter!  The snow that fell yesterday has moved on and has left behind about an inch of new snow for us!  There are a few high clouds still lingering out there but are expected to move on as the day progresses.  Today’s forecast is calling for sunny skies and warmer temperatures, which will give us soft springy snow once again.  The winds have calmed down tremendously since yesterday and it is rather comfortable out on the hill!

In addition to skiing and riding, we have a fun day of Easter activities planned. Our Easter Brunch at Pine Marten Lodge has sold out, but all are welcome to participate in either our Deschutes Brewery Easter Keg Hunt (for adults) or one of our Easter Egg Scatters (for kids):

  • The Deschutes Brewery Easter Keg Hunt gets underway as soon as the lifts open. Look for clues on our Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the morning until the keg is found. The lucky finder receives a $120 gift card to Deschutes Brewery! (Bring the keg to the Administration Building in the West Village parking lot to get your reward.)
  • For kids, the Easter Bunny will be here! The first of two Easter Egg Scatters will begin at 10:15 a.m. in the Snowsports area at West Village for kids 5 & under. Then at 10:45 a.m., an egg scatter for older kids will take place on Home Run beneath the Sunshine Accelerator chairlift.

Happy Easter... we hope you can spend it at Mt. Bachelor!
