Let the ski season begin.
With 20 inches of new snow in 24 hours, and forecasts predicting another 10 inches of powder by Wednesday morning, the Mt. Baker Ski Area has announced that it would open for the season with limited operations on Wednesday, November 21.
The ski area evaluated the Heather Meadows area, and decided that with a 41-inch base, it was ready for skiers to hit the slopes.
At press time, they were still evaluating conditions at the lower White Salmon Base Area.
Season passes are still available and can be purchased online or at the ski area. For more information, visit mtbaker.us or call 360/734-6771.
