Mt. Baker SnowSchool
Offered in cooperation with Mt. Baker Ski Area, North Cascades Institute and Northwest Avalanche Center
Applied Science In the Mountains
Mt. Baker SnowSchool is an unforgettable winter adventure that combines hands-on science education with snowshoe-powered outdoor exploration for grades 6 - 12 at the Mt. Baker Ski Area in the North Cascades. SnowSchool serves students from all backgrounds and introduces them, often for the first time, to the natural wonders of the North Cascades in winter!
Over the course of two sessions—one in the classroom and one at Mt. Baker Ski Area—SnowSchool 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.
