Midweek operation
9:00am-3:00pm

After a pretty straight-up crazy day today, snow levels are expected to fall below 3,500 tonight and remain low through the day tomorrow, with 5-7 inches of new snow possible for the morning.  We are expecting to be back in normal midweek operation Friday with chairs 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 operating, but that is dependent on weather and snow conditions so stay tuned here for the most timely updates!

Mt. Baker got absolutely hammered with an extreme amount of new snow and stormy, windy conditions last night.  As we got out on the mountain this morning to prepare for opening we discovered that in some places the new snow drifted as deep as 4-5 feet.  The avalanche danger was extreme and we were only able to open Chairs 5 & 7 while we continued to do avalanche control work on the rest of the mountain.  To all of you who drove up today, thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked through the day to deal with the extreme conditions.
