It's looking like all the weather predictions for the La Nina winter are holding true so far. We got a nice dusting of snow here in Bend last night and Mt. Bachelor has been getting dumped on! I just checked their website and things are looking good for a Thanksgiving opening (that's what I'm hoping for, maybe sooner)! They have 21" already mid-mountain!

It's been two nights of "stealth snow" here - no snow during the day. Maybe the snow is just shy...

Seems like they were! When was the first snow fall in town the last couple of years?

This is the earliest snow fall for me by FAR. Was very surprised looking out my window last night watching it stick. Thought it was normal for the mountains, but in town...its great!

I drove up to the Mt. Bachelor's 'main lodge' Sunday evening and there were tons of people out trying to enjoy themselves.....I even saw some snowboards that looked like they were hiking up Mt. Bachelor to get a run or two in.

Very exciting!

We're east of Bend, up at the 5,000' level, and had quite a bit snow overnight but it is melting quickly now. Was supposed to snow again today, however we have nothing but blue skies.

I can see the lower elevations from here, and it looks like it has all melted off already down there. I thought I wasn't mentally prepared for winter's arrival this year, but I ended up enjoying watching it from the first flakes onward.

Last year it was really early, October 3rd! We had several inches too and the leaves on our trees hadn't even turned colors yet. We ended up losing a mature silver maple in the back yard. I don't recall the year before, my first year, but I don't think we got anything until December. For me, growing up in Colorado I'm used to early fall snows. It seems like every few years we would get a pretty good storm there in late September!

Sugarsugar, I thought the same thing, especially when we started getting those frosts in September. However, I think now that the mountains are getting snow, I'm ready. As long as it doesn't rain all winter again, I'll be a happy camper!

What the earliest Bachelor has opened? I can't recall really skiiing before Thanksgiving in Oregon...

Looks like up on Hood, Timberline will open it's lower mountain runs this weekend--the upper mountain(which doesn't really close long) re-opened for weekends back at the beginning of October.

AH! My brother lives in Bend. I'm calling him right now!

Edit: Confirmed. He had snow at his house! Funny, considering it'll be in the 90's tomorrow where I live

Anyone have an inside scoop on Mt. Bachelor's opening? I know they say the 24th, but anyone have any info on the early open?

delta07 - I find it more than coincidental that after we spoke about ****, it has rained.

Honestly, I think we should never say that 4 letter word out loud again

Haha, yup, so true! Of course, even though I'm excited for ski season, I have to say that today is absolutely beautiful! I wouldn't mind a few more of these days before winter sets in for good.

Don't worry, I'm heading to Hawaii next week so pretty sure we'll have lots of the unspoken when I return!
