Conditions Report

IT'S OFFICIAL... WE'RE OPENING FRIDAY!
Little Pine chairlift open for skiing/snowboarding from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the Hopening Day Party starting at Noon

The transition from morning sunny laps to cloudy ones in the afternoon marks the arrival of a new winter storm! Wednesday forecast is calling for a few refreshing inches of snow to play in with temps in the low 30’s and moderate winds. Let’s all do a big snow dance and come up to Mt. Bachelor to have some fun playing in the snow you danced for!

We're open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with Little Pine lift and Red Chair accessing a handful of runs. Until we receive more snow, the only groomed run from Red Chair is Thunderbird, which is in good condition and skiing/riding well. Remember that early-season conditions exist with a very shallow snowpack. Keep your eyes open for marked and unmarked obstacles and stay safe by skiing/riding only in open areas.

We need another strong storm or series of storms to deliver more snow before we can expand our lift and terrain offerings. We're hopeful that by this weekend, when we're scheduled to open the Sunrise base area, we'll have enough additional snow to add more options for you. Until then, lift ticket prices remain at discounted, early-season rates. Remember to purchase online, in advance, to save $10 on each lift ticket.

Please be aware that a modified Winter Uphill Travel Policy is currently in effect. Until the snow depth increases, ALL OF MT. BACHELOR IS CLOSED TO HIKING with the exception of the Cinder Cone at West Village.

Have fun, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
