Overview by Steve Giordano

Mt. Baker is one ski hill whose boundary signs command respect. It's set in steeply rugged wilderness country blanketed by a few hundred inches of snow on the shoulders of Mount Shuksan. The actual Mount Baker, a 10,778-foot volcano, is a few miles to the west.

The 1,000-acre resort contains plenty of ungroomable terrain, a natural playground for snowboarders and adventurous skiers. It's become something of a Mecca to the booming board culture. Young snowboard pilgrims aim to descend these slopes at least once in a their lifetimes—many get here and never leave. During the annual Legendary Banked Slalom in late January, snowboarders achieve blinding speeds as they run the gated halfpipe, a winding narrow creekbed under 20 feet of snow.

Mt. Baker's 1,500-foot vertical drop offers all-day possibilities for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers and snowboarders alike, with plenty of gently groomed slopes plus steeps, chutes, and woods that bring out the pioneer spirit.

Traveler Reviews of Mount Baker


John rates Mount Baker
A friend turned me on to this neat little ski resort. Great skiing and well maintained trails. Never waited for lift, always stepped right up and got on. Challenging runs and beginner trails make for good skiing for all. Not bad on the budget either. Pros: Easy to access, Well maintained, Short lines, Good tours, Great for kids.
