wrathfuldeity Baker...stats wise, late jan early feb is the cascade concrete season...glazed ice, later feb can be pow, mush, fog, concrete, bluebird, rain...anything. But iirc last year...also a la nina there was some cold pow days...its really unpredictable for planning any travel...you either hit it or not...that's why its called a locals mtn. Locals constantly watch the weather on the hill...and if its going off well you go. Due to the storms rolling in/or not, jet streams, elevation and etc. the weather on the hill is highly variable....it can be white out dumping on top and downpour raining at the bottom...you can have dry pow on top, chow in the middle and grapple at the bottom...all in 1 run. On a good day (bluebird highly over-rated), its dumping fucking poo all day...the bad is if you are to tourist...you can't see, don't know where you are going, your board is too short so you can't keep up with locals and they won't stop for your swimming...so you can get easily fucked (terminal like)...tree wells, cliffs, trees, avy, head first deep poo and holes...so the tourist generally stay to the groomers/marked runs if they are smart. Recently heard rumor from a good source, last year they had 9 folks die in the area...I suspect mostly non-locals.

So the general idea...highly unpredictable

PNW Washington (Crystal, Mt Baker) Conditions

Just wanted to get a general idea of snow conditions at Crystal or mt Baker throughout February.
Any tips?

From what I saw on Baker site, it seems like that isn't their peak snow season? Unless I misunderstood.
