We appreciate your interest in purchasing a Mt. Baker Ski Area Season Pass for the 22-23 winter. Like you, we are very much looking forward to the upcoming season and being back on the snow-covered mountain with the Mt. Baker community!
As has been the case for the past 70 years of Mt. Baker’s operation, this year may again have its own unique uncertainties. Over the years we have experienced a variety of circumstances, ranging from weather challenges to pandemics, that on occasion have affected ski area operations.
Our crew has a solid track record of maintaining the best possible operations even under very challenging mountain conditions. We remain committed to, and very experienced at, adapting operations in order to best meet the challenges that may come our way when it’s reasonable and possible to do so.
We continue to have confidence that together we will all be able to adjust to what comes our way and operate the ski area in such a manner that passholders and ticket holders will have opportunities to use and enjoy the mountain this winter.
Therefore, before you choose to purchase a pass, you will need to consider the realities of the uncertainties of life in the mountains. . .and life in general (thank you Covid) and how they may impact the operation of the ski area as well as your expectations around the value of your pass purchase. And . . . our No Refund policy remains in place.
This is a partial list. See the Season Pass Release Agreement for more.
