WINTER RIDE YOUTH DISCOUNT PROGRAMS

We live in a special place. It is a joy for us to help younger people in our community have fun, play, learn and grow up in these mountains.The Pacific Northwest, and Mt. Baker in particular is one of the most stunningly beautiful and exciting places to ski or snowboard in all of North America...and many would say in the world. Breath fresh air, form new friendships, learn a new skill, engage and explore, gain independence and become part of the Baker community.

Instructor with Youth Snowboard Students

For over 50 years, the youth ski and snowboard programs have been a fun and exciting way to spend time in a memorable natural environment. The benefits of spending time in nature have been shown to increase well-being and engagement and improve overall health and skiing and snowboarding are such a fun way to do that! We look forward to helping foster a love for the winter outdoors and help young people develop the skills they need to begin gaining independence both in the mountain environment and their everyday lives.

Mt. Baker Ski Area provides Winter Ride discounts for youth in grades 2-12 for enrolled in the Winter Ride program. The discounts you receive depend on what Winter Ride program your Organization/ Group qualifies for. Public, private, tribal and home-schooled youth grades 6-12 are all welcome

Season passes, lessons, lift tickets, and/or rental equipment are the only services provided by Mt. Baker to Winter Ride participants; any transportation needs are arranged directly through your organization/group.

Why Take Lessons?

Our experienced instructors can help skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels progress their skills and increase their mountain knowledge. We strongly recommend that first time Winter Ride participants take lessons. Winter Ride lessons are offered at a significant discount off regular lesson prices, and are offered for all ability levels. Lessons generally take place upon organization/group arrival at the mountain.

Why Rent Equipment from Mt Baker?

Renting equipment from Mt. Baker means that there is no heavy, wet gear to bring home at the end of each week. Each morning of program, Winter Ride renters pick up their rental card from a rack just inside the Heather Meadows Mountain Shop, then head downstairs to get their gear. The rental cards make it easy for our Rental Shop Technicians to get them quickly set up with the right gear.
