Ski and Board Season is Underway in Washington State: Mount Baker Ski Area First to Open

It’s official!  Ski and Snowboard season is underway in Washington state.  Mount Baker Ski Area opened on November 19, 2015.

Not everything was open and there were early season conditions, but they did a good job of coverage with the 34″ base they have at Heather Meadows.
Friday November 20th was a super sunny day on the slopes and no lift lines at all.  The weather people say it’s supposed to be clear and sunny for the weekend and I’d expect to see larger crowds enjoying the slopes at Mt. Baker – as well as at their neighbor to the north Whistler Blackcomb, which also opened the Whistler side of the resort on the 19th.

We’re all anxiously awaiting another snow storm, so that other Washington resorts, like Mission Ridge can open too!
