This February, it seems the entire Pacific Northwest has been hit with a series of major storms that have led to snow piling up in Portland and Seattle as well as here in Central Oregon. The upcoming weather forecast for Mt. Bachelor calls for new snow accumulation from today through Presidents’ Day and likely into the next week. The national weather service predicts new snow blasting the mountains with 8 to 12 inches forecasted for tonight as well as snow throughout the day. Into the rest of the week, they predict accumulation of several inches each day and each night.
With the “Snowpocalypse” making for superior skiing and snowboarding conditions at Mt. Bachelor, now is the perfect time to plan an impromptu trip to Central Oregon to take advantage of the winter wonderland that’s blown into the area. Spend Presidents’ Weekend shredding powder at your favorite mountain with a bevy of activities planned throughout the long weekend. We know many Washington school will be on their mid-winter break the following week and heading south to Sunriver may just be the best way to spend your time off with the family.
