Unbelievable! Mount Baker ski area in Washington has had 121″ of fresh snow since the turn of the year. That’s more than resorts in California have had ALL-SEASON.

10-feet in 6-days.

20″ every day.

Almost 1″ every single hour for 144-hours straight.

This serious dumpage takes the resort to 378″ for the season. The resort averages 663″ every year, so it is well on the way to smashing that.

Most skiers know about the phenomenal snow year of 1998-1999 at Mt. Baker ski area. 1,140 inches (95 feet) of snow fell to the ground over the course of the ski season. That amount of snow would cover the White House by 25 feet, a record snow year for ski resorts worldwide.

In Alaska, Alyeska reports a season total of 343″ and is the only other resort to have exceeded 300″ of snow this winter. Looking at the forecast, it won’t be long until Mount Baker surpasses 400″. Crazy!
