Overnight Parking

Overnight Parking

We have a limited number of overnight parking spots available Opening Day – April 22 at the Heather Meadows and White Salmon parking lots, and reservations are required. Mt. Baker is a remote area and these overnight parking sites are “primitive” with no hookups, so all overnight parking rigs must be self-contained. That being said, it’s hard to beat waking up to fresh snow and mountain peaks around you, with a short walk to the chairlifts to start your day! Choose which option below fits your situation, and find details and the link to reservations on those pages.

During operation, there are days when one of the base areas may be closed, and lift ticket purchasing and indoor facilities will not be available at the closed base area.

*This schedule is dependent on weather, conditions and other factors, and may change without notice. Be sure to check our Snow Report the day before arrival for the anticipated Base Area operations for the following day, and then check the morning of your visit for confirmation of the anticipated operation schedule.
White Salmon Base Area – Open 7 days/week through April 9th
Open Fri-Sat-Sun April 14-23
Heather Meadows Base Area – Open Sat-Sun through April 9, closed Mon-Fri. Also usually open on Holidays.


If you will be camping overnight in your vehicle (RV, Camper, Trailer or Van) in the parking lot, choose Occupied Overnight Parking.


If you plan to leave your vehicle (Car, van, truck) unoccupied overnight while camping in the backcountry, choose Unoccupied Overnight Parking.
