We are entering one of the best times of the year here in the Pacific Northwest; autumn! The mountains and alpine area around the ski area are absolutely stunning for the next few months and, of course, autumn leads in to the BEST time of year ... winter!
Our crew has been working hard this summer to maintain and upgrade our facilities, lifts and machines to get everything ship-shape for the start of the 2019-20 winter season. We continue to work hard to maintain the balance of providing an excellent all-around ski and snowboard experience while still keeping that experience financially attainable for our customers.
Season Passes will go on sale September 16th, and we are again featuring a "Droppin' In" rate through September 30th. To help you make your money work harder locally, we also have cash discounts on season passes this year. With a cash purchase, all your money goes back in to ski area improvements, operations, and the local community.
While you're planning your winter adventures and waiting for the snow to fly, come up to the ski area for a hike or a scenic drive and check out our Heather Meadows Cafe. The Cafe is located in Heather Meadows Day Lodge in the upper base area and features delicious local food and great Baker retail items. Gear up the family to take a hike around the various Mt. Baker National Forest trails, cruise up to Artist Point, and enjoy the scenery from a different perspective without snow! The cafe is open Friday through Monday and all of the food options are from locally sourced farms and businesses. Some choices including freshly made sandwiches, salads, and our customer favorite - homemade blueberry lemonade!
Thank you for checking in with us, and we will begin to update this report weekly in October.
