Too Much Snow

So it finally happened. It had been building for some time. We’ve gotten 10 feet of snow in the last ~14 days up at Baker, with most of that in the last 5days. Today the resort didn’t open. The reason: too much snow. We’ve got another 50+ inches forecasted for the next 5 days, so I’m using this brief lull to share some of the recent photos.

The last sunny day:

The beginnings:

Scott, out visiting from the East Coast, was unable to ski today due to too much snow.

Too-much-snow days don’t have to be no-fun days though:

    You’ve got an awfully sharp eye, greg.

    There is no such thing as too much snow.

    did they have to dig the lifts out again?

    Anyone who thinks there is no such thing as “too much snow” hasn’t spent a La Nina winter skiing backcountry around Mt. Baker. No digging out the lifts yet but the mid mountain base is 21′ and rising rapidly.

    Two weeks ago was skiing with a looney from Australia at Jay when he tried jumping a gully that patrol had staked to avoid; does a full-body face plant with arms outstretched on the landing like the Wile-E Coyote; complete yard sale; took us 20 minutes to find his poles in 3-4 feet of pow. I’m sending him out to you guys to give a new challenge in 20′. Name’s Stefan, a carpenter from Melbourne. Have fun; better tie yarn to all his gear. Great pics guys.
