The last days of winter

| No Comments

The Mt. Baker ski area only has six more days of scheduled operation - this coming weekend and next. From the website:

We will be CLOSED Monday through THURSDAY and will REOPEN for Normal Midweek Operation out of the White Salmon Lodge on FRIDAY from 9am to 4pm.

Looking ahead, forecasts are calling for some fresh snow to accumulate through the week followed by another ridge of high pressure building for Saturday for more fabulous weekend weather.

Don't forget there are only 6 more days left in this great 2015-2016 season!

As local businesses count the days until the slowest time of the year - between April 25th and June 15th. When the ski area closes and Public Schools let out for the Summer. After June 15th, we will start to get families coming up here for vacation and this will build up to the strongest time of the year for business.

Some people think that with all the ski traffic that Winter would be the strongest but no. We see a nice increase but this is from all the people who flock to the area for the temporary jobs at the ski area itself. Skiers will be traveling from Bellingham or points farther and are loath to stop on the way up because they want their cut of the fresh powder. Around 3:00PM, they are cold, wet, tired and have rubber-legs and just want to get home and take a long hot shower. The idea of stopping for something on the way is not prominent in their cortical activity at that time. During summer, you have groups of people up here to hike and camp and the pace is more leisurely - they can stop at a fun little country store and browse for an hour.
