Mt. Bachelor announces it's going to open one more time for skiing and snowboarding June 29th through July 1st.  Spokesman Andy Goggins says the snow on the upper mountain is still in tact and conditions are spring-like so the hours will be early.  “The earlier the better. Especially depending on overnight conditions; if it doesn't freeze overnight, you get enough radiant cooling in the snowpack. Where it's pretty good snow conditions first thing in the morning, and then in the late afternoon is when it gets slushy. So we'll operate 7:30 in the morning and then we'll close at 1 p.m. before it gets too slushy. Skiing this time of year is always fun."


Goggins says lift tickets are $30 for anyone; but 2011-12 pass holders get a discount at $20.  Summer operations begin on Friday, July 6th- you can get more information at:  www.mtbachelor.com.
