2007-08 Pre-Season Snow Report – REPORT UPDATED November 9:
The precip has moved in, but the freezing level has been a little high yesterday and today bringing mostly rain with a few snowflakes SO FAR.
The GOOD NEWS is that a series of fronts continues to be stacked up out in the Pacific and the freezing level is expected to continue to drop over the weekend.
Monday’s front looks like a real hoser and it is very possible that the North Cascades (ie Mt. Baker only) could end up with 30 INCHES OF SNOW BY TUESDAY NIGHT.
After Monday’s weather event, we will assess the next series of forecasts before we make a determination about opening day.
So, we’re still looking for about 24” – 36” of snow (depending on temp it falls at) on the ground before we can begin operating the lifts. But as you all know, that can happen overnight at Baker. Our crews are on 24 hour standby and we are ready for when that snow starts to fall!
Thanks to all you who bought season passes this fall – we certainly appreciate that you have chosen Mt. Baker has your home mountain this winter and hope that lots of great powder days will be had by all!
We will update this report as the weather changes and/or snow falls!
La Niña is brewing. . . .
Thanks for checking in on us,
The Crew at Baker
