Snowy Escapes

Washington winters are marked by rainy days and thriving evergreen trees, but snowfall can be rare in our area. If you're craving fresh powder and the humbling experience to stand at the base of a regal mountain, check out these Pacific Northwest resorts. Mount Baker Ski Area Just east of the quintessential college town of Bellingham is Mount Baker. Small class sizes make Mount Baker an ideal place to learn how to ski or snowboard.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
