Snow is Gorgeous in Whatcom County this week!

It’s a winter wonderland in Bellingham, Ferndale, Lynden and throughout the county today. A beautiful, fluffy white blanket covers the ground. The air is calm and quiet. And Jack Frost has painted the leafless trees to resemble classic holiday cards of the 1800s. Schools are closed today, so the roads are quiet, children are sledding and snowmen are waving from front yards.

Mt. Baker Ski Area is open with 38 inches of new snow, 122 inches at the base and powder everywhere! People are saying Mt. Baker currently has the best ski conditions in the continental U.S.  Lift ticket prices are also among the most reasonable here. Weekday rates are $46 for adult and $35 for youth. Get more ski & snowboard details at www.mtbaker.us. For cross-country, snow-shoeing, snowmobile and sledding check out our snow sports page, under Things to Do.

Then cap it off by gazing out the window with a nice, steaming mug of hot cocoa.
