Winter Ride

See below for details from the 2023-2024 season. Stay tuned for updated information for the 2024-2025 season coming late summer.


Saturdays in March

The Winter Ride program has a long history at Mt. Baker, impacting countless community members, parents, and Baker staff. We are deeply committed to continuing to invite and host youth at the mountain through the Winter Ride ski, snowboard, and transportation program! Winter Ride serves youth in grades 6-12 for four weeks in March, with lessons required for all new participants.

Fuel the Ride is back for Winter Ride 2024!

We’ve partnered with Erin Baker’s Breakfast Cookies to create Fuel the Ride and provide free breakfast to kids of all ages in Mt. Baker Ski Area’s Winter Ride Program. You can’t perform your best unless you fuel up before you hit the slopes!
