The Nordic Center will open up beginning today, Saturday 11/19 with Alpine operations to begin next Wednesday, 11/23.

With 17 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours and over 2 feet of new snow falling at Mt. Bachelor in the last 3 days, Mother Nature has given them a great start to season and look forward to La Nina bringing another BIG winter to Mt. Bachelor in 2012.
