Mt. Bachelor to Open on Wednesday

Mt. Bachelor announces that it will open in time for Thanksgiving.

Posted By on Sat, Nov 19, 2011 at 12:50 AM

As we mentioned yesterday, Mt. Bachelor ski resort has been keeping a close eye on the weather to see if they can open -- as they typically do -- in time of the Thanksgiving weekend.

And we just got word that they'd be doing just that with today's announcement that the mountain will be opening on Wednesday, November 23, which I like to call Thanksgiving Eve.

The storm system that dropped a couple inches of snow down here in town last night has been absolutely walloping Mt. Bachelor, dropping more than 17 inches in the past 24 hours (as of this posting.) The resort is listing its base depth at 31 inches, which will make for some slim conditions, but hey, it's good enough to kick off the season.

The snow is expected to continue throughout the weekend with the possibility of more into next week.
