Crews at Mount Bachelor are dealing with 6 feet of wet heavy new snow. They are open again today, but running on generators and have limited parking. Mount Bachelor spokesman Drew Jackson says they are trying to keep up with the record amount of snow. The avalanche danger is also affecting those who like to recreate in the backcountry.  KBND: “And were also hearing from the Sheriff's Office; dangers in the back country can you address that?” Jackson: “Yes, it came in upside down". Yesterday, Bachelor was shutdown for only the second time in 20 years due to all the snow, a power outage and 100 mph winds.
