This is a POV clip from Dec.1. The pow was good, and the early season gnar is for the taking! Enjoy the clip, “but you should never move to my HOOD, cause danger is…..” Mt. Baker opened this year with a bang! The snow was light and deep, stable conditions in the b.c. and a good base holding down some of the best conditions in late November to early December.
The wheels have come off the snow train…for a little while now the PNW has been set in a high pressure drought leaving the snow crunchy, and windblown leaving fond memories of the start to another La Nina season. I have faith that things will return to normal at Mt. Baker soon, it can’t “not” rain forever. I mean forever is a long time, not gonna happen. History, cold air, and the world record say otherwise. So until we get another wet dump, or just some precip. I have been dreaming and watching videos where a white December is just around the corner!
