Mt. Baker (Washington) Ski Area will be CLOSED TODAY AND FRIDAY due to a large quantity (100+) trees that have fallen on the highway east of Glacier, forcing a road closure from Glacier to the ski area.
The DOT has been working all day on the road and is coordinating a strong team of cutters and excavators to work on multiple sections of the road all day Friday as the weather is expected to stabilize, allowing crews better access to the problem areas.
The hardworking DOT crew is anticipating being able to clear the road Friday which would allow the ski area to open on Saturday depending on how progress goes tomorrow.
With 98 inches (8+ feet) of snowfall since Sunday morning we have been in the midst of a major storm cycle here at Baker and in the Northwest in general.
Once again, we will be CLOSED TODAY AND FRIDAY and plan to reopen Saturday December 22nd.
