The early season snow is falling in heaps all over the country this year, as many resorts are already experiencing mid-winter conditions. And although it's not as unusual in the Great Northwest, it's always a welcome treat. Mt. Baker consistently has some of the best opening days of any mountain, and this year was no different. Cold temps and plenty of powder made for yet another epic start for the Baker locals, including Vans Team Rider Mark Landvik.
