Mt. Baker Opens Thursday
Mt Baker is opening this Thursday November 16th 2006! Woot! Their base is up 178cm deep at the top according to snow report.
The report on their side says:
We had another one roll through yesterday and last night, leaving us another 14 INCHES OF NEW SNOW. Since Saturday morning, we have had 53 INCHES OF NEW SNOW!We are still going with our OPENING DAY OF THURSDAY NOVEMBER 16, as we are continuing to watch Tuesday night/Wednesdays system which looks like it is carrying A LOT of precip. . . . and possibly some warm air with it. We need to see how this system affects the snowpack and since the forecasts are calling for a rapidly lowering freezing level later on Wednesday, THURSDAY still looks like our day.
Ski area rope lines are going up today, chair lift ramps are being groomed and prepped and base areas are receiving stocking shipments.
I'm stoked. I'll think about it...sitting in my office...staring out the window at Grouse Mtn. Rumors have it that Whistler will open Sat Nov 18th. But I got bad info that for today...cough...Sam! So no promises.
