Nordic Conditions Report

OPERATIONS UPDATE
We're reopening today, but prepare for saturated snow and thin coverage

The Mt. Bachelor Nordic Center is now operating on its spring schedule: 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. daily. Remember, Nordic Spring Passes are on sale for $89. There's still plenty of season remaining - we're open every day for as long as the snow lasts into May!


Well this is embarrassing.


Owing to a mix up on our end, we ended up without a Nordic grooming operator last night. Ugh. The good news is that our back up Nordic operator (who doubles as alpine operator) was grooming the hill last night and was able to sneak across the lot for a few hours early this morning to help. (Thanks Cat Matt!) The not so good news is that the grooming report is on the slim side today including only the Uppers, Blue Jay’s, Old Maid and the Ears (Devecka’s/ South Woody’s and Easy Back/ North Woody’s) and is for Skate only. 


Early snow conditions on the trails are fairly firm with uneven sections due to the groom post-freeze, but just a hour or two of sun is enough fix that. Still, we’ll be adjusting our fees to reflect the reduced offerings for the day. You can expect fast, low effort skiing in the mid-morning and wetter, higher effort skiing in the early-afternoon. Just as a reminder, the trails now close at 2 pm. 


The morning air temperature is 29.2°, the snow is 23.2°, and the RH is 62%. The air is calm and clear (free of smoke!) and expected to warm into the mid-40's. It is a beauty of a bluebird day at the mountain. We'll see you out there!
