Saturday will see little if any snowfall. More snow is expected by Sunday as a modest system moves into the Pacific NW. Snow levels may go up a tad, but a decent amount of snow is expected. After a break on Monday, a new and vigorous system will move on Tuesday.
We Have Snow!
With more than 100” of snowfall already this winter, Mt. Bachelor is open daily for the season. Additional lifts and terrain will be added with each upcoming snow storm. The latest conditions report can be found here: http://opsw.co/2zjDAUz
Short Term Forecast
It’s the new system on Tuesday that gives me the most hope. There is potential for 10 plus inches of snow fall, Tuesday-Wednesday. This could really help us out, as the snowpack is getting a little thin in spots. There is higher snowfall potential for sure on Tuesday, but also some wind possible - so there are no clean deals.
In the long range forecast, after Wednesday, I do not like the trend. The models keep showing high pressure moving in again for more than a few days, resulting in another dry spell before Christmas.
