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

Went on a Tuesday after it rained on the coast, there was 3 feet of fresh powder snow everywhere!! Practically no lift line at all, the lodge had awesome food and cheap beers. If I had to describe this in 2 words they would be HIDDEN GEM I had such an amazing time one of my best experiences in 15+... 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

Driving up to Mt Baker from the Bellingham area this July was an absolute treat. Less than 2 hours of scenic and easy driving brought us to snow covered hikes, beautiful reflective lakes, crystal clear waters, gorgeous blue skies, and cool little hikes in awesome weather. We had hoped to be able to hike the Chain Lakes Loop, but it... More

This is an out of the way ski resort. It is a good distance from both Seattle and Vancouver. The result is excellent skiing without large crowds. Mount Baker gets a huge amount of snow every year. The conditions are excellent and it is well groomed. There is a very nice White Salmon Lodge to have lunch. The Easter weekend... More

One of my favorite places to snowboard! A must stop if you are in the area. Still got the old school feel of what a resort used to be, this is a turn off for some but it keeps these "weekend Warrior" types off the hill. I love it. Snow gets DEEP and the terrain is beautiful. Prices are pretty... More

I just got back from Mount Baker and I would never recommend this hill to anyone based on customer service alone. My family purchased day passes that we only used for 1 (ONE) hour worth of skiing in non-stop pouring rain. When we went to customer service and asked if we could receive a refund or a defer ticket we... More
