Visitor Reviews of Mount Baker

RB from United States writes:

I skied Mt. Baker for the first time this February on a day trip down from Whistler. It had been a poor snow year to that point, which at Mt. Baker meant "only" a 150-175 inch base and snow banks on the access road that dwarfed our SUV. Fortunately, we caught the tail end of a great snow week, so there was deep powder everywhere.

Baker is a small area in vertical and acreage but manages to pack in an incredible amount of variety, including some hair-raising steeps. It is pretty deserted mid-week (even mid-Presidents week) so there is limited competition for untracked powder.

One caveat: this is strictly a day area. Even the lodging on the road into Baker is pretty basic. That said, the day facilities at the base are spacious and modern, so it is a comfortable day area.

This is a real skiers mountain. Go for the powder skiing. Go home and rest. Let the snow bunnies go to Deer Valley.
