  • After watching the weather and how the systems were moving we saw that mt baker was going to be cold and hit hard. It's position seems to put it in the path of moisture, it's elevation means it will f...  more »

  • Mount Baker is a wonderful ski resort, with terrific atmosphere and cozy bars and restaurants along the scenic highway that leads to it. Stop by for a beer and pizza at the North Fork Brewery, for instance. The location in Bellingham is obviously not where the mountain is. It's unfortunate that it's labeled on the map as the ski area: using google maps to navigate to the ski area will lead you astray.
  • More snow falls here than anywhere else on earth. It falls on terrain of rugged wilderness, only nominally made into a ski area. Family style and unpretentious, the facilities are modest, but provide all that is needed to enjoy this place. Home to world-class snowboarders and skiers seeking a big mountain experience, Mt. Baker is also home to families with children. Whether you are the former, or the latter, bring lots of snacks.
  • Fantastic, glad its so close to BHam.
  • A small rain storm ruined the trip. Too low altitude to rise above the rain.
  • The ski area would get 5 stars for area and terrain, however the 1 star is for the resort employees. Do not, if possible, rent gear from the people. There are a couple of good shops in Glacier that rent gear that is in better shape, beter tuned, and set up for you by true pros. My wife needed to rent a set of boots as she had really nice dynastars, poles, and a helmet but no boots. They told her it would be full price even just for boots, and it would be 45 minutes until they could adjust the bindings for her dynastars, even though THEY HAD TO ADJUST HER RENTAL SKIS ALL THE SAME! They are generally callous and unwilling to work with you or use their common sense. I would HIGHLY recommend renting gear before heading to the mountain, dont rely on mt baker staff for anything. I am a season pass holder and have ran into so many idiots working there. There are some cool people working there, but dont risk it as I've never had any problems at the local ski shops.
