I know it’s lame to re-post our own press release as a news story here at freeskier, but I’m freakin busy. So at least I gave ya a photo.

MT BACHELOR OFFERING RAIL PARK AND TUBING AREA FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

Mother Nature Handing Mt Bachelor Lemons – Ski Area Making Lemonade

(Bend, Ore) – Though natural snowfall and cold temperatures have been in short supply in the Oregon Cascades, Mt. Bachelor is determined to offer a “snow play” experience to guests during the upcoming holiday weekend. Snow is being trucked into place in both the tubing area and a rail park adjacent to the West Village Base lodge. On Friday and Saturday, Mt. Bachelor will offer a rail park and two tubing lanes to the public from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Use of the tubing area and rail park will be free for season pass holders, or $5 for those without a season pass. Mt. Bachelor continues to make snow at all opportunities and monitor forecasts in hopes of opening for the season as
soon as possible.

In addition to the rail park and tubing lanes, the Mt. Bachelor Ski and Sport Shop will be open offering the latest gear and apparel, a BBQ will be fired up on snow, and the Clearing Rock bar will be open for patrons. The Season Pass Office will be open selling passes and fulfilling passes for guests that have already purchased their passes. Details on services offered this Friday and Saturday, Nov 28 and 29 are available at www.mtbachelor.com.

“It’s clear that we’re not going to be able to offer lift serviced skiing and riding this weekend. Rather than simply waiting for more snow, we have been at work moving what snow we have in areas like our parking lots into places where guests can enjoy it. The Ski and Sport shop will be open, we’ll be grilling food, playing music, and enjoying
the snow the best we can. It’s not the early season conditions we all hope for, but it’s making lemonade out of lemons, and it should be fun,” said Dave Rathbun, president and general manager.

A number of early season ticket deals are also available at www.mtbachelor.com including specials for college students and a “two day for the price of one” that goes on sale Nov 28.
