Old Man Winter is back with a vengeance at Mt Bachelor and he has blessed us once again with amazing ski conditions near Sunriver Resort. The snow is deep and light due to the ideal low water content snow that recently blanketed the mountain and Central Oregon a short time ago. My eight-year-old son and I recently had one of the best ski experiences of our lives. As the photos below illustrate, the snow was ideal for “powder hounds” of all ages.
This past weekend 81 intrepid runners braved the cold and snow to participate in the inaugural Sunriver Resort Run For Chocolate 5K. Jason Townsend of Bend was the winner of the male division with a time of 19:54 and Sunshine Willis won the female division with a 25:24 time.
Put the event on your February calendar next year as we look to make the race bigger and better in 2012 (exact date TBD).
After a snowy start to the winter season in Central Oregon, we've seen a dry and warm pattern develop for the entire month of January and first part of February. According to recent forecasting models, that's all about to change - and just in time for President's Day Weekend. Check out the latest snow report from Mt. Bachelor.
