Poor snow conditions made the first half of the winter season disappointing for Mt. Bachelor business. But conditions improved and the crowds came in the spring; ending the 2012 winter season with numbers just slightly below last year's, and officials say it's a success. 

According to a Mt. Bachelor news release, the entire U.S. Snowsports industry suffered its' worse season since 1991, with a 15.7% drop in visits over last year. The Pacific Northwest fared much better than the rest of the nation, with only a 12% drop.

Mt. Bachelor officials made the decision to cut hours and days of operation in April to save money and, thanks to late season snowfall, the visitor numbers jumped significantly above last year at the same time. Dave Rathbun, President and General Manager says he's excited to be finishing strong and on a positive note considering where they were just three months ago.
