The constant pattern of snow, rain and very cold temperatures made conditions ripe for problems on Mount Bachelor.  A small avalanche was reported to mountain officials around 10 a.m. Wednesday. The Avalanche Response Team was set in motion and they began searching for anyone who may have been trapped under the snow.  Patrollers determined no one was trapped or hurt in the snowslide. In a published report, Andy Goggins with Mt. Bachelor says the slide occurred in an area known as Cliffhanger, an area susceptible to avalanches. The area was closed off, but they expect to be able to return to normal operations today.
