Winter Schedule & Operating Hours

Mt. Bachelor's 2018-19 winter season began Saturday, November 24, 2018 and is scheduled to conclude on Sunday, May 26, 2019, conditions permitting. Dates and hours are subject to change without advance notice.

UPDATE: December 11, 2018

Daily operation continues with lift operating hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 


Pine Marten, Sunshine, Skyliner and Sunrise lifts are scheduled daily, with Red and Rainbow available as needed. Carrousel Chair opens for the season on Friday, December 14.

Additional lifts and terrain will be added to the schedule as soon as the snow depth allows. We need 1-2 feet of additional snow before we can expand into the Cloudchaser and Outback areas and 3-4 feet of additional snow to add Northwest and Summit. Snow is in the forecast and we anticipate opening more terrain by Friday, December 14 if the storms deliver as predicted.


Early Season Lift Tickets will be available for purchase through Tuesday, December 11. All pre-purchased Early Season lift tickets will be eligible to use through Friday, December 14. Starting Wednesday, December 12, only Regular Season lift tickets will be available for purchase. Save $10 on each lift ticket you buy online in advance of your visit. View Ticket Prices.

All 2018-19 winter season passes are valid to use as per the specific access rules published with each product. Visit Mountain Gateway ticket & sales center to pick up your pass or get your picture taken. Note that during busy periods for pass pick-up, we may temporarily stop issuing photo passes and provide a OnePass instead, which provides the same lift access. Guests are welcome to return to the ticket center later in the afternoon to pick up a photo pass after the line shortens.
