OFFICIAL OPENING DAY: WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 12

Operations
Limited Midweek operation
9:00am-3:30pm

 OPENING DAY WEDNESDAY!   Mt. Baker will be in limited midweek operation Wednesday out of the Heather Meadows base area with chairs 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 operating and midweek lift ticket rates in effect.  We will be working towards opening both base areas by Friday with expanded lift and run operations.

It’s an absolute blizzard up here today, and in true Baker style our snow base is growing by feet, not by inches!  And the cherry on top: forecasters are calling for another 10 inches of new snow today with snow levels dropping to 2300 feet by Wednesday morning. Opening day Wednesday should be pretty darned awesome with forecasts calling for cold temperatures and a little break in the storms.

The storms are expected to crank back up Wednesday night, with another 12+ inches of new snow possible overnight and then another 12+ inches expected for Friday morning with cooling temperatures. This coming weekend could be a beauty - forecasts are looking at cool temps and possible clearing for Saturday and Sunday. With our rapidly building snow base and a big hit of new snow expected on Friday, Baker should be the place to be this weekend!
