Mt. Baker is NOW CLOSED FOR THE SEASON and what a fitting way to send off the 2015-16 season with a little FRESH SNOWFALL!
On behalf of the entire Mt. Baker crew, thanks to all our customers and season pass holders for a fun and successful year here at Baker! So good to see so many smiling faces.
With over 620 inches of snowfall, El Niño served Baker well this year. We started off with full ops in mid November then rolled right into a 184 inch snowfall December. January and February topped well over 100 inches each and can you even imagine a more perfect mountain Saturday than the Saturday of the 30th Banked Slalom? Fresh powder snow, sunshine and mountain rainbows. Wow. Then March delivered 114 more inches of snow and here we are topping it off on closing day with a little more white.
The Climate Prediction Center and NWS are giving us the first good indications that El Niño may be dissipating this spring/summer and there is a good possibility that our favorite winter friend LA NIÑA may be in place next winter! La Niña is characterized by colder then normal temps out in the Pacific Ocean which in turn can mean colder then temps at Mt. Baker and LOTS OF SNOWFALL! Stay tuned!
We will keep you posted with updates throughout the summer and look forward to passes going on sale Sept 15th.
Wishing everyone a sunny, adventurous and healthy summer.
The Mt. Baker Crew
