It looks like the snow will stick around for the rest of the day and into tonight. The high is 36 and the low is 19.

Classes are cancelled at Western Washington University today after threats targeting minority students appeared on social media. University President Bruce Shepard is calling the comments posted on social media hate speech. Students received emails and text alerts this morning around 6 a.m. (OPB)

A man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of five people at a Black Lives Matter protest in Minneapolis. The shooting victims injuries are not considered life threatening and are undergoing treatment at local hospitals. Police are also seeking two other men, who were also believed to be involved with the shooting. People were gathered outside of a Minneapolis police precinct protesting the shooting death of Jamar Clark by a police officer. Three men opened fire on the crowd after being escorted away from the protest. (New York Times)

A Russian warplane was shot down after entering Turkish airspace close to the Syrian border on Tuesday. Turkey says the Russian plane was warned multiple times before entering its airspace. Russian President Vladimir Putin called the actions a “stab in the back.” NATO called for an emergency meeting in Brussels on Tuesday. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said NATO supports its ally, Turkey. (New York Times) (NATO)

Mt Bachelor Ski Resort Set to Open Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Nov 20, 2015 at 12:38 PM

Snow enthusiasts rejoice! Mt Bachelor has announced they will open their Sunshine Accelerator lift Saturday, November 21st. 

Press release: 

"We have some awesome news to share: Mt. Bachelor will open for its 58th winter season tomorrow!

Although the compacted snow base isn’t quite deep enough to permit sustained skiing and snowboarding on our primary runs just yet, there is enough snow beneath the Sunshine Accelerator lift to allow for the creation of a pre-Thanksgiving terrain park. Starting Saturday and until further notice, the park - served by the Sunshine Accelerator lift and featuring several small boxes and rails - will operate from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Resort services that will be available beginning Saturday:
  • Food & beverages at Cocoa's Café and the Clearing Rock Bar in West Village Lodge
  • Gravity Sports @ Mt. Bachelor retail shop, featuring all new 2016 gear and discounts up to 50% on carryover items from last season
  • Equipment rentals and private ski & snowboard lessons
  • Walk-up tubing at the Snowblast Tubing Park from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for $10

The opening date for other services, including childcare, group ski & snowboard lessons and the Nordic Center, will be announced in the coming days.

We will continue our preparations to open additional lifts, terrain and services in time for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, but we'll need a little more help from Mother Nature. Let's hope that a colder storm projected to arrive Tuesday will deliver the necessary snow that would allow us to open more of the mountain. We will also continue to make snow on Thunderbird run, beneath the Pine Marten Express lift, whenever temperatures allow.

Please adhere to our uphill travel policy which goes into effect today ( avoid areas where our team is making and hauling snow and track packing the runs. Also please remember, ODOT/USFS parking restrictions are now in effect along Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway - parking along the highway shoulders is prohibited - parking is only allowed at designated Snow Parks with a valid Sno Park permit. Parking at the Sunrise entrance gate is also now prohibited.

All 2015-2016 Full Season, Midweek and 12 Day passes along with 4-Packs are valid to use beginning Saturday. If you still need to pick up your new pass, our sales & service center in the Mountain Gateway building at West Village will open its doors at 8:30 a.m."

Wee-United And It Feels So Good.

Posted By on Tue, Nov 17, 2015 at 2:33 PM


Ween is reuniting for two shows and while that isn't very many shows it's more shows than we thought we'd be getting like a week ago. The two musical extravaganzas will be on February 12 & 13 at the Broomfield's 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado and, as Gene and Dean Ween have described, will be "fucking mind-blowing." Sounds accurate and like a great way to spend a couple of days.

Posted By on Mon, Nov 16, 2015 at 11:10 AM

On Monday, people gathered around Paris city hall to hold a moment of silence for at least 129 people who were killed in multiple attacks around the city on Friday. Five of the seven men who carried out the attacks have been identified; however police are searching for Salah Abdeslam who has been named as an eight suspect. Raids throughout France have resulted in the detainment of 23 suspects, and French authorities also seized
rocket launchers and assault rifles. (NPR)

The victims of Friday’s attacks were of 19 different nationalities. French President Francois Hollande said the “attacks targeted youth in all its diversity” on Monday. Holland has requested to meet with Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin to discuss unification of all three countries in the fight against the terrorist IS army. (AP)

After Friday’s terrorist attacks, an image of the EiffelTower called Peace for Paris emerged on social media. French artist/graphic designer Jean Jullien created the image. (Refinery29)

Face Kick Your Way To A Full Belly!

Posted By on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 at 10:40 PM


The El Rey Network, which was launched and is mostly curated by occasionally good director Robert Rodriguez, is at it again. For the second year in a row, the network will host a Thanksgiving Day Kung-Fu Movie Marathon. This is perfect for those of us with families that have been known to throw verbal punches over stuffing, Bruce Lee and all of his genre counterparts will be there to defuse some of the tension. The "Way of the Turkey" marathon starts on Thanksgiving day and runs for 72-hours, which should be just enough time to shake off those meat sweats and move on with your life. The full list of movies is here. Enjoy.

Murphy and Third Street Roundabout to get new art installation

Posted By on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 at 10:29 AM

Art in Public Places chose Gilded River—a kinetic art installation of ten tree sculptures—which will be installed at the Murphy and Third Street roundabout in summer 2016. The 22-foot high aspen-modeled trees will have over 1,000 gilded leaves, which will replicate fall foliage colors. Over the summer, more than 110 art submissions were received, and the three finalists who were chosen displayed replicas of their art proposals at the Deschutes Public Library downtown in October. During the two weeks the art models were on display, more than 1,300 people voted for their favorite models. “This was the largest turnout for public voting that we have ever received and we are thrilled,” said Sue Hollern of Art in Public Places. Art in Public Places works to improve public places with art design to help promote tourism and economic vitality.
