Ski Season To Start Monday At Mt. Bachelor

Heavy rain is falling in the Willamette Valley, and that means snow in the Cascades. That’s good news for skiers and snow boarders. Mount Bachelor opens Monday, with other resorts following soon.

Jackson: “Things are looking good for Thanksgiving weekend. We hope to have at least three lifts open, at least five kilometers in the Nordic Center.”
