Mt. Bachelor gets hit with over 100 inches in 7 days

So winter showed up in a big way this last week. Mt. Bachelor got dumped on in epic proportions. We recieved over 100" in just 7 days and it's currently still snowing.

Like most of the west coast we have had a bit of a slow start to the winter but it looks as if the faucet has been turned on. We are lined up with snow through the rest of the week and this place is riding amazingly to say the least! I have posted a few photos of the storm riding as well as a blue bird day we had yesterday.

I can't say enough about the amount of snow and the quality. There has been so many turns that at some point you just have to go home because you know it will be there tomorrow. I would encourage anyone and everyone looking for a good time to check out Mt Bachelor's website has all the info on tickets/shred packages, current conditions,  extended weather outlook, updates on their parks, contest calendar, current mountain videos and just about everything one will need for a great mountain experience.

If you like powder and first class parks then get yourself to Bachelor because the NW is where it's at! Thanks to all the mountain crews for handling such massive amounts of snow and making it fun for all!
