100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Mt. Bachelor Opens in Good Style

Posted on Fri, Nov 23, 2012 at 10:47 AM

Yesterday was opening day at Mt. Bachelor and, thanks to recent storms, real snow was piled high.

Shredding in November!

Although hectic in the morning, our forces on the hill are reporting that the crowds thinned by 11:30am. We reckon it'll be more of the same today, though with the Sunrise lift opening today, the masses should be more evenly distributed across the mountain.
Here's a look at what to expect through the weekend.

The forecast for today looks reasonable enough, it's the prediction of rain tonight that has us worried. Rain would be a bummer for the 17 inches that Bachelor has received over the last 72 hours.
If, however, the cold front comes through as forecast, we should get more snow Saturday, Saturday night and Sunday.

Please keep snowing.

Other notables:
Nordic Center Open and groomed. Skating feels soft, but classic looks to be good (see photo below).
The Mountain 67 inches already and counting. 26 inches at West Village and 41 inches at mid-mountain.
Overall, it's a been a good start to the ski season—Bachelor is calling it the "best November conditions in years."
Sunrise on opening day.

Sun and snow on Thanksgiving. Soft skiing, but lovely weather.
