  • Went to Mt Baker in March 2022, my first visit to the states since the pandemic. Compared to Canadian mountains it was pretty quiet, despite being a beautiful bluebird day. To be honest, I’m not much of a skier - this was my only day of the season, but what a day it was. Beautiful terrain, rugged mountains, good facilities (pictured lodge is very well done), decent food, live music on weekends in the day. My only complaints - 1. Gear rentals close either 30 minutes or an hour before last lift. That’s really annoying and dissuaded me from renting a helmet as I wanted to maximize time on slopes. 2. I’m a bit acrophobic, but fine with secure heights. I was really surprised to see quite a few lifts without safety bars. I don’t always put the bar down, but given the height on some of those chairs it made me pretty uncomfortable.
  • Came here early October for some Fall scenery and gorgeous Mt. Shuksan views-The Ski area, Picture Lake and Heather Meadows are wildly beautiful this time of year! Lots of trails for hiking and a very cool drive up to Artist's point for the best views of the area. It's a wonderful weekend day trip! There is nearby lodging on the by way up here and some campgrounds in the area (check ahead for closures) for longer trips. You will need to get a pass, or pay for day usage/pass at the Glacier rest area/ranger station machine near the map boards.
