Pre-Season Update:

We are currently at the low point on the Roller Coaster of early season weather.  After getting a nice hit of new snow last week, we now we are seeing warmer temps and the atmospheric river flowing over the PNW.   Our snow base started off pretty solid, so hopefully we can make it through this warm storm in good shape and ready for the next snow.

Later next week and on into December forecasts are calling for a cool down with a decent amount of snow.  Our crew has been saving all the snow off the parking lots and moving it onto the hill, our snow cats are lined up and ready to go, and our pro patrol is poised to plant bamboo for boundaries the instant we have enough snow.  So keep your fingers crossed and we hope to see you on the mountain just as soon as we get that snow base up to where it needs to be without a rain event forecast in the immediate future! 

Once we're open be sure to swing by our Mountain Retail Shop at it's new location in the Heather Meadows Day Lodge.  Our crew did a great job of remodeling the space off the bottom floor hallway, and Eliah's got it stocked with some pretty amazing custom Baker items and quality winter gear!  (we just got in some nice custom design Baker blankets by Spacecraft that would make an excellent Christmas gift).  If you can't make it to the mountain to check it out, you can find a good selection of merchandise in our online store!
