BEND, OR -- Local ski operators are thankful and excited as they gear up for holiday visitors. Stirling Cobb of Mt. Bachelor tells KBND News December’s snowfall dwarfs where they've been the last couple of years at this time. “In the '13-'14 season we received 30” of snow in December. The last year, in the '14-'15 season, we had a little bit better year with 70” of snow in December. And already this month, with another week to go, we already have 151” of snow.” He adds, “You know, this is that December is supposed to feel like here at Mt. Bachelor.”

 

Neighboring Hoodoo opened last week. Leif Williams has a similar report. “Compared with last year, with maybe five to six inches of snow on the ground at this time, this is night and day. We’ve got 65-plus inches on the ground right now.” And that translates into great ski conditions for locals and holiday tourists. “I just took two runs and there’s powder above my knees and some spots above my waist.”
