This is for real: Mt. Bachelor is opening on November 24. And that's not a rumor.

But it’s not unusual for the skier and rider world to become rife with rumors come mid-November. Rumors that start with a simple: “Dude, wouldn’t it be cool if the mountain opened this Friday” that quickly becomes: “The mountain is opening this Friday for sure.”

Someone asking how the person stating that the mountain will open is sure it will be gets in response: “Because my buddy who works as a lift op told me so.”

Then, of course, Pine Mountain Sports held its annual “Powderhounds” video and image fest at The Tower on Wednesday night and that means that the mountain has to open soon to meet the pent up energy and demand of all the riders and skiers who were at the show.

But they’ve gotta wait. For the record, here’s the official news from Mount B: “There seems to be some confusion in the community about our official opening day (rumor has it tomorrow is our first day of operations). With recent weather bringing snow and temperatures ideal for productive snowmaking, Mt. Bachelor is planning on opening in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday on Wednesday, November 24th. For the latest updates and information on opening day, alpine and Nordic conditions bookmark the new Mt. Bachelor website.

Everybody down with that? It’s next Wednesday and not a day earlier.

Now what’ll we do between now and then? Spread the rumor that the mountain is opening today.
