BEND, OR -- Only one lift is open at Mt. Bachelor, but they hope to open more soon. Stirling Cobb, with the resort, says they're waiting to see just how much snow Mother Nature brings in over the next 24 hours. "We haven't reached a decisive conclusion about what the next operating plans will be, but we're optimistic, given the next storm that's supposed to come through, that we'll be able to open more of the mountain on Wednesday before Thanksgiving; or, by the latest, hopefully on Friday."


Saturday, the mountain opened one lift to allow visitors to use the terrain park. Cobb says more than 500 came out on Sunday.  He tells KBND News they're looking forward to a better season than last winter. "Last year we faired better than most and we were able to operate all season, and well into May, actually. All of us are winter enthusiasts, here at the mountain, as well as our guests, so we're all optimistic that this winter will be better than last year. Ideally, it'll bring a near average snowfall, which is between 350"-400"; and with that, it'll be more than enough to carry us into May." As of Monday evening, the mountain registered about 15 inches.
