A recent New York Times article names Mt. Bachelor as one the best places to ski in July. 

 

Mt. Bachelor spokesman Andy Goggins says we are spoiled with both good snow and great conditions. "Just having the highest resort peak in the Pacific Northwest and the Cascades. We get ample snowfall throughout the winter season. I think we're pretty spoiled here with the quality of the snow and the amount of snow that we get. It lingers, we have great conditions through late spring. We have one of the longest season in the U.S. with operations extending through Memorial Day weekend and then we're looking at even June this year."

 

Goggins says the weather conditions have been pretty good this year; and mid mountain has over 69 inches of snow right now.

 

He says they hope to have all the lifts open in the next couple of weeks; just in time for the holiday crowds.
