Mt. Baker, WA, the recognized king of lift-served snow, is no stranger to huge storms. This year, they head into the holiday weekend with a 150" base at Heather Meadows, a 179" base at Pan Dome, and 98 inches of snow in the last six days.
All of that sounds great, but nobody has been able to get there due to more than 100 trees falling over the access road. Today's mountain report tells the tale.
Ah, purgatory for Bellingham-area skiers. Fortunately, they are hoping to have the road open tomorrow.
