The heavy snow that fell in the cities and caused all kind of problems this morning, was very much welcome up at Mt. Bachelor. Andy Goggins with Mt. Bachelor says they got 18 inches of new snow and they are expecting snow through tomorrow. He says with most of the schools closed today, many headed to the slopes: “Definitely more kids than normal for a weekday. I think there's a lot of people playing hooky today. We’ve far exceeded the six-inch rule that a lot of people use for using sick days. So I think we've got plenty of people that came up for the powder." Goggins says the snow couldn't have come at a more perfect time; with the long President's Day weekend coming up, they expect more skiers and snowboarders coming in from all over the northwest.
