Over the past few months many of us coordinators have met with Mt Baker Ski Area to discuss their concerns about WR, large crowds, weather conditions, etc. The ski area has seen quite a bit of growth over the past few years and they are feeling too busy in January and February to really give the WR kids the attention they feel they need to.
So, Mt Baker is changing the WR program.
The program will now only be four Saturdays in March – March 5 through 26 2022.
Lessons will be required for all participants.
There are some pros and cons to this.
Pros: Better weather and usually better ski conditions in March
WR program will be cheaper, so more affordable to more students
Less of a commitment for all involved
Cons: May conflict with spring sports
That first Saturday is during Lynden’s Mid-Winter Break
Many participants liked the eight trips we usually took.
We may actually have less interest in the program that before.
I certainly have mixed feelings about the change. I understand Baker’s reasoning, but worry it may negatively affect Lynden’s WR program.
I’ll be updating our webpage with more info as I get it. www.lyndenwinterride.org
