Mt. Bachelor Aims To Reopen Friday

BEND, OR -- Mount Bachelor isn’t expected to reopen until at least Friday. After opening the 2023-24 season for just one day last Saturday, the resort says heavy rain and warm temps melted off a foot of snow from the base.

Cooler weather and more snow is expected by the end of the week. The goal is to open Little Pine and Sunrise lifts Friday morning and then additional lifts and terrain as conditions allow.

The National Weather Service issued a Hydrologic Outlook for Central and northeastern Oregon through Wednesday, due to the massive rain forecast for the area. West of the Cascades, flood watches and warnings are in place. On Tuesday, flooding closed portions of Highway 101 near Seaside and Highway 6 in Tillamook. Some areas saw as much as six inches of rain in 24 hours. Farther inland, Willamette National Forest engineers are working to repair a Forest Service Road near Terwilliger Springs, where a landslide blocked access.
