Easy Parking, slow lifts and definitely not a resort and no apres atmosphere

Good skiing, sketchy lifts, locals seem to litter a lot--beer cans abound! The drive up and down is windy and no where to stay on the mountain except a private lodge. But the... read more

Baker sucks... Don't go here. I went with 18" of new snow in 24 hours, it was deep! Who wants deep snow? Come on. there was only one run with fresh corduroy. Just joking, this place is rad! It was sick, too bad the day I went everyone and their dog went too. There was still lines to be had!... More

Good skiing, sketchy lifts, locals seem to litter a lot--beer cans abound! The drive up and down is windy and no where to stay on the mountain except a private lodge. But the views, snow, and quick runs make it a great day! There are two lodges and one small "hut" lodge, food is nothing great, nothing comfortable or relaxing... More

We were visiting Anacortes and decided it would be fun for the family to learn how to ski. After looking around I found that Mt. Baker had a great deal in their learn to ski package. for the kids it was a beginner lift ticket, rental equipment and a 1 1/2 hour lesson for $42. for the adults the price... More

I love Mt Baker. I haven't been here since 2003. I rented a snowboard from the shop. The crew was helpful, friendly and cool. The mountain is awesome. Baker gets tons of snow, especially during El Niño. I'm coming back on Friday after its gonna get 2 feet. Can't wait. The price is great and the lines aren't there. I... More

I usually head to Stevens for all my snowboarding needs because it's close. I went here the first time 2 weeks ago and was blown away. The runs are long and beautiful. The views at the top are unreal. The snow is better here as well. The price is about the same. The only thing that sucks is that it's... More

The drive to artist point is very beautiful, mostly Mt. Shuksan is visible. The weather changes pretty quickly on the mountain so be prepared for fog and rain and cold weather. Winter gear is recommended when hiking to table mountain, head gear and gloves too. When I planned to visit, it showed sunny in weather forecast and it was, until... More

The Mt Baker highway climbs up into the mountains to a ski area just north of Mt Baker (a 10,000ft volcano). During the summer, this area is popular with hikers of all abilities. The first stop is a small lake with a paved walking trail around it. There are viewing platforms that allow you to capture pictures with reflections of... More
