Baker Beacon Rally!
Mountain Madness is excited to be helping to run avalanche rescue clinics during the “Baker Beacon Rally” on Mount Baker on January 6. In addition, we will also be donating a free Backcountry Ski day for two to the cause. Mountain Madness wants to encourage all winter enthusiasts to get out and get educated so that we can have a safe 2013 winter season.
