From the terrace where we are staying in Abbotsford BC Canada we look across Fraser Valley to the magnificent Mt Baker in WA. So we had to go see for ourselves, crossing border , and driving up to about 4000 feet where road was still closed because of snow. We picnicked by a picture postcard lake with glorious sunshine in... More

I was just out for a drive without a plan when the road took me here! The ski are was closed but people were still out taking advantage of the fresh snow. The view was wonderful. Easy to access. I did not want to leave.

So living in Vancouver Mt Baker is only a 2+ drive depending on the line up at the boarder. I much prefer Baker to Whistler its better value for money with some great runs on the piste.

Love actually skiing. ski here, its great :) It's like one step away from that back country feel of being open and free. Kinda like that you have the whole mountain to yourself. I've been coming here for 25 years and I love it everytime.

We did not have pow experience we would have hoped. It was a much warmer winter and the snow was melted and a bit icy in most spots. The runs were nice just wish we had some nice powder to go along with it.

I joined the Vancouver Outdoor Club (Meetup.com) with a team of 17 to hike the Mt. Baker North Cascades trails. It was the first time for me, and it is the biggest best kept secret of Washington to the world ! Our destination is only less than 2 hrs. drive from Vancouver, with breathtaking magnificent mountains, glaciers and lakes. We... More

I saw that the road to Mt Baker was listed as a scenic highway so on the way home from Vancouver we decided to drive out Rt 542 to Mt Baker's Artist Point. The trip was long but easy driving. We stopped to view the Nooksack falls and again at Picture Lake. The lake was beautiful surrounded by colorful wildflowers... More

The Mt. Baker Ski Area, east of Bellingham, WA, offers spectacular scenic vistas, winter and spring skiing, snow camping and mountain ascents, and year-'round backpacking, technical climbing, and mountaineering for the young, hearty, and experienced. For the less active, families with young children, or aging Baby Boomers who love the mountains but lack the capacity--or chutzpah--to hike strenuous trails, the... More
