SKI MT. BAKER
North Cascades, WA | 2-3 days | May-July
Summit ski descents via the Coleman-Deming, Easton Glacier, and Squak Glacier.
A classic spring ski mountaineering objective in the Pacific Northwest offering a 7000'+ descent on the second most glaciated mountain in the Lower 48. We offer 2-day summit ski ascents of Mt. Baker in May and June, selecting our route based on conditions between the Easton Glacier, Squak Glacier and the Coleman-Deming.
For very fit, experienced individuals it is possible to ski Mt. Baker in a single push. We offer this option on a custom basis. This usually requires camping at the trailhead and starting in the middle of the night.
