ski mt. baker
Summit ski descents via the Coleman-Deming, Easton Glacier, and Squak Glacier.
A classic spring ski mountaineering objective in the Pacific Northwest. We offer summit ski ascents of Mt. Baker on a custom basis for private groups and individuals.
We select our route a week or two before the trip based on snow surface and glacier conditions. For most groups we recommend 3 days on the mountain, as this allows for skills training and weather flexibility.
For very fit, experienced individuals it is possible to ski Mt. Baker in a single push.
