Mt. Baker Ski Area to reopen Tuesday


Mt. Baker Ski Area is set to reopen Tuesday morning, Dec. 3, after warm weather closed the ski area Sunday and Monday.

The ski area had been expected to reopen Wednesday, but a significant drop in the temperature and more than 8 inches of new snow at Heather Meadows meant that date could be pushed up.

The snowpack was recovering well after a warm, wet storm that hit over the weekend, according to the area’s Monday morning snow report. Crews were working Monday to get the area prepared, and chairs 3 through 8 were expected to be running Tuesday.
