It’s closing day! This is it, the countdown is over and the final show is here at last. Let’s celebrate together with hot laps of hot pow! 

Hope you’ve prepared your legs and your mind for a super special springtime surprise snow day. The snow came down on and off on top of the ski area throughout the night and now the sunshine is beginning to break through the snow flurries. If you're reading this, you already know that you should be here, so pack up and start driving!

All operations will be based out of White Salmon Day Lodge today with the Raven Hut open for a final sit by the fire and farm fresh Baker bowl. It's your last chance to end the 23-24 Mt. Baker season in style with fresh snow and fun with friends in our favorite place! We will be running Chairs 3-8 throughout the day.

Mt. Baker won’t be out of your lives for too long, the Summer Café opens on June 28th. On the second floor of Heather Meadows we will have the café open, alongside a pop up retail shop, beautiful mountain views and meadows full of heather.

Mark your calendars now for mid-July to peek at the website for 2024-25 Season Pass sale details. Remember, if you're a returning passholder you get the first chance to buy, so don't miss the window!
