Mt. Baker Snow School is a cooperative program between Mt. Baker Ski Area, Northwest Avalanche Center, Western Washington University and the U.S. Forest Service. Mt. Baker Snow School is an outdoor winter learning adventure combining applied science education with snowshoe- powered exploration. Middle and high school students and their teachers engage in research and hands-on learning around the themes of weather, watersheds and climate. Over the course of two sessions—one in the classroom and one at the Mt. Baker Ski Area—Snow School introduces students to the winter mountain environment, engages students in hands-on science learning, encourages active and healthy lifestyles through winter recreation and fosters a sense of place and connection to community.
