Spring break is often a popular time on Mt. Bachelor. Spokesman Andy Goggins says the big crowds will come in this weekend and they'll be able to track the tally then. He says the crowds probably won't be as large this year compared to years past because Easter falls much later. And the spring breaks from Oregon, Washington and California are spread out more. One thing is certain though; the snowpack is great - almost record breaking. "So far this year to date we are at 148 inches at the base of the mountain 177 inches at the mid-mountain snow stake, which is unbelievable for this time of year. Our season total is 504 inches. That's about 70 inches short of our total season record." Goggins says the record season was the 1998-1999 season, so with a good base they are expecting a healthy season of "spring skiing."
