Conditions Report

Monday January 16, 2017 Last update 03:51 p.m.


Nothing like sunshine and spring-like conditions to wrap up an awesome long weekend at Mt. Bachelor! Although, just as Tuesday will mean getting back to the grind for most folks, it also means back to the storm grind for the mountain. It looks like we won't be able to shake these warmer temperatures before precipitation begins to trickle in midday tomorrow, but you can expect fairly calm skies and soft groomers for the greater part of the day. This storm front is projected to carry on throughout the week with snow levels slowly dropping over the course of the next few days. Be sure to check back in the morning to see how weather may affect operations!

Seeing as the morning may provide the best conditions to get your turns in tomorrow, join us for breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in Cocoa's Cafe and enjoy a hot, hearty meal slopeside before grabbing that first chair. We look forward to seeing all of you up here!
