Sunny Speed Demons: this week was for you at Baker. The snow is holding up nicely during this high pressure spell. Runs like Daytona are rippin’ as fast as can be. With 131″ at the base of Pan Dome, there’s still plenty of coverage with pockets of hidden powder among the hard-packed groomers. Need a refreshing powder lap? Head to […]

It was a classic Northwest storm over the past few days with a little bit of everything but most importantly, lots of snow! The early bird got the worm on Sunday this week with 6″ of new overnight and 12″ in the past 24 hours.
