We've had a great opening run
here at Mt. Baker, with over 71 inches of snowfall in the past 8 days!
After some amazing powder days, we are now looking at some warm
temperatures and liquid precipitation (yes, we'll say it; rain)
expected for today and Wednesday. HOWEVER, with our current fantastic
snow base of over 60 inches, and the fact that on average it takes about
2.5 inches of rain to melt about 6 inches of snow base, we may lose
only about 10 - 12 inches of base through this storm.
We are extremely lucky here at Baker to have built up such an awesome
snow pack so early, so even with the forecasted rain we are expecting to
head in to the holiday weekend with over a 50 inch base and still some
of the best run coverage we've ever had for the Thanksgiving Holiday!
We will be in full operation Thursday through Sunday, and with forecasts
calling for temperatures to drop towards the end of the week with some
more snowfall and then possible clearing, make plans now to come up and
enjoy some fun time on the snow over the Holiday!
