Mt. Baker ski resort in Washington state closed due to a lack of snow on March 8th and hasn’t been open since.
Today, Baker announced that they will be reopening this Thursday, April 16th. They just got 2-feet of new snow and that was just enough to reach the base depth they need to restart operations.
Baker has 33″ of snow at the base of Heather Meadows and 65″ of snow at Heather Meadows.
MT. BAKER PRESS RELEASE:
Great news: we finally received enough snowfall to RE-OPEN THURSDAY APRIL 16th!
We will be in limited operation out of the Heather Meadows Base Area with at least two chairs operating and the handle tow. The forecast looks sunny for Thursday and great for the weekend with blue skies expected Saturday and Sunday.
We’ll assess conditions Friday afternoon for the possibility of adding Shuksan arm to the operations for the weekend.
We’re looking forward to being back on the snow on Thursday and hope to see you there!
