We plan to have Austin and the Blueberry Cat Track open for advanced skiers and are hoping to open upper Canucks and North Face if temperatures allow. Heather and some extra groomers off of Chair 2, 7-Hills, and Roly Poly will be open for beginners.
We could see a little more snowfall this evening into tomorrow morning, followed by a clearing trend through the weekend. However, the Wx cafe is sticking with "As the second week in March gets underway, indications are for […] Lots of added goodness to the snowpack."

Feb. 9, 2015 -
In light of the unusual weather patterns in the Pacific Northwest this year, we decided to look back at our snowfall statistics to see if we could find some comparable years. And the two closest matches we found were 1976-77 and 2004-05. We do not have daily snowfall recordings for 1976-77 but the snow base at Heather Meadows was recorded. Last season also had a slow start to the snowfall, but take a look at what happened in the spring of those three seasons:
So looking at the statistics, previous comparable seasons have seen fantastic spring snowfalls. And with 76 potential operating days left (as of February 9, 2015) we are optimistic that we can see some great skiing and snowboarding days ahead of us at Mt. Baker this season!
