This is the final Mt. Baker snow report of the 2012-13 season. As of Sunday April 21st, Mt. Baker is now closed for the season. As Baker style would have it, closing day was filled with big fat snowflakes - what a great day for the end of a memorable season at Baker.
We will top over 700 inches of snowfall for this winter. Of the 147 days of operation this winter, 97 of those days Baker had fresh snow. On a full 30 of those days we had 8 inches or more of fresh powder. 15 days were extra powder good, with between a foot to 26 inches of new.
On behalf of the crew at Baker, we hope you had the opportunity to enjoy some of the great days up here this year. From time with family, to memorable powder runs with friends, we hope the mountain was an enjoyable part of your winter here in the Northwest.
We would like to thank all our passholders who make Baker part of your winter life. A thank you too, to the day ticket buyers who make the effort to join us at Baker when we know you have many good choices for skiing and riding here in the Northwest. We appreciate your support of Mt. Baker. We would also like to thank our staff and volunteers who work hard to make this place run each day and who help make it a good place to be.
We look forward to seeing you all again next winter. . . .same place, same time, new fresh snow.
