Risk of Avalanches, Sliding, and Falling Snow

While snow safety and avalanche hazard mitigation efforts by Mt. Baker Ski Area may help reduce the risk of avalanches, snow slides and avalanches occur at the ski area, both inside and outside of posted boundaries. AVALANCHES, SLIDING, AND FALLING SNOW ARE AN INHERENT RISK OF THE SPORT due to the characteristics of snow and its variable nature throughout the ever-changing mountain environment. You are responsible for becoming educated about snow safety and using this education to reduce the risk of injury or death from avalanches through your actions and awareness.
