An atmospheric river is headed to the Pacific Northwest this weekend.
Mt. Baker ski resort in Washington state is forecast to receive 60 inches of snow in the next 4 days.
That’s a heckovalotta snow. This holiday weekend at Baker promises to be just a touch more than completely nuts. Lotsa snow, lotsa people, lotsa fun, lotsa beers, and plenty of good times. Should be a free refills weekend at Baker.
Snow levels are looking good as well. They should be around 2,500 feet.
