If you’re looking to get your spring break powder fix on anytime soon, you’re going to want to head to Mt. Bachelor. Monday was one of the best days of skiing in my entire life. It all started with 7″ of snow overnight and 8″ more falling throughout the day.
We headed right up Pine Martin Express in the morning and traversed over to NorthWest. Boy was the wind howling up top, but it was a treat to have it open. Once we got down the first hundred verticle feet or so, tree cover saved us and the snow was light & fluffy. Constant snowfall throughout the day filled in tracks faster than we could make them.
The longest line we battled all day lasted a whole minute before we were on the chair. You could take laps as fast as you could get down to the chair. Untracked powder was to be had throughout the day and the wind aided in filling in the tracks.
Looking ahead this week, the forecast is All-Time. Snow is expected to fall continuously with cold temperatures and we are currently under a Winter Weather Advisory. While others are planning their spring break in the warmth, why not bring your snorkel and ski at Bachelor, because you’re going to need it.
This forecast is absolutely out of this world. It is calling for anywhere from 21-39″ of snow to fall just through Wednesday Night. More snow is expected to fall all the way throughout the extended forecast.
