Early Season Turns - Mt Baker Area Part II

According to short term forecasts this rain will turn into snow. This system that we are currently in is bringing massive percipitation. The freezing level may be high today but it is expected to drop on saturday and into sunday which could mean as much as 60cm of snow in the Mt Baker Ski area. Which is enough to lay down a decent base for some early season turns.

This is a tentative plan to go and do some early season backcountry skiing up in the Mt Baker area; Either around Artist Point which is skiiable car to car, or Skyline Ridge which looks primed; but the destination is subject to change, or the event may be cancelled if the freezing levels don't agree.

If the snow does agree I'll send out an email to everyone giving the details of the carpool location and time to meet!
