MT. BACHELOR IS CLOSED TODAY
Due to a rupture in our main water line, Mt. Bachelor will be CLOSED today. Please do not visit the mountain as all buildings will be closed. We apologize for the disruption and will pass along more information as we learn it.

Don't store away the storm gear just yet...

A snowy start to our Saturday ski day follows a damp night that started on the warm side as rain, changing over to snow right about the time we were brewing our first cup of coffee. Not expecting a sustained event, the white greeting caught us a little off guard (shame!) and now looks like it could hang on for a few more hours. Most of you know that we are NEVER disappointed by snow and are pleased as punch to get a clean white topper at this stage of the game. We're even crossing our fingers that things stay cold enough to tally an inch or two. Air temp right now is hovering right at the freezing mark at 31.6*. RH is 85%.

Wet grooming conditions limited the trail prep opportunities and today's roster is a bit reduced. All of the Uppers and Middles except for Rich's Range are ready to ski for both skate and classic. Surface conditions are on the punchy side with a half frozen, saturated top layer now covered in new wet snow, smooth and flat, true wet granular. Snow temp is 31.0*.

Despite today's wintry twist, we are moving forward with our preparations for springtime and will be moving to our spring schedule on Monday, with reduced operating hours and a change up in our grooming schedule. Starting on Monday, the Lodge will be open from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm only and the trails will be closed for grooming at 2:00 pm. Our Cafe will be closing on Sunday and our lesson schedule will be reduced to weekends only, or by arranged, requested private appointment.

So many changes! Including today's snowy surprise as a reminder that there are a few things that we just can't change, or control, and sometimes that is just right. Thanks for the bonus storm, Mother Nature.

See you out there.
