Mt. Baker

The Mt. Baker ski area isn't actually on Mt. Baker itself. There's a road that continues a few miles past the ski area to take you to a nice viewing area of the mountain in the summer. I've never been all the way up there and was thinking about taking a ride there this weekend. After looking at their website, I quickly realized that's not an option.

They're still trying to get the road cleared and are having to plow through snow that up to 20 feet deep. In the four day work week before the Fourth, crews cleared a total of 1/3 of a mile. There are lots of rocks in the snow which bust the snowblower and cause downtime for repairs.

You can see more information about the effort on the WSDOT site and their Flickr gallery.
