Think winter came early this year? Mt. Bachelor certainly thinks so.

With more than 7 feet of snowfall so far, the resort opens Saturday, Nov. 18—ahead of its usual Thanksgiving weekend start. Expected to rival its record-high 665 inches of snowfall in the 2010/11 season, the resort will have three lifts running: Pine Marten, Skyliner and Sunshine Accelerator—conditions permitting—and will be open from 9 am to 4 pm.

A deeper-than-normal snowpack means runs have 24 inches to 36 inches of snow so far, though resort officials say it's still early season snow conditions.

"It's exciting to get an early start to the 2017-2018 ski/snowboard season," said John McLeod, Mt. Bachelor's president and general manager. All full season, 12-day and four-day passes will be available.

And as an added bonus, midweek passes will also be allowed for use on opening weekend. Single-day tickets will be reduced to $63 for adults with other offers for youth, teens and seniors. Though there will be limited services, equipment rentals, lessons, food and beverages will be available, with full services beginning Nov 23.

The resort has closed all uphill trekking routes, except for the Cinder Cone route.
