Mount Baker Ski Descent

Get Your Turns On The 7,500-foot / 2286-meter Descent Of Koma Kulshan

Mount Bak­er, the high­est peak in the North Cas­cades, is a fan­tas­tic moun­tain for climbers AND skiers. Not only are its two stan­dard climb­ing routes (the Eas­t­on and the Cole­man-Dem­ing Glac­i­ers) also won­der­ful ski descents, but under cer­tain con­di­tions the mountain’s hard­er snow and ice climbs are now con­sid­ered ski­able” by a grow­ing cadre of local ski moun­taineers. While on the sum­mit plateau, ski over to the edge of the Cole­man Head­wall, peer down to the north, and con­sid­er what must have been going through the heads of the young skiers who first skied this fea­ture 10 years ago – and then turn around and ski over to the Roman Wall and enjoy the mod­er­ate and emi­nent­ly ski­able slopes of the Eas­t­on Glac­i­er instead – a 7,500-foot / 2286-meter run!

For peo­ple with basic ski moun­taineer­ing skills and expe­ri­ence the Eas­t­on Glac­i­er is the route of choice for a spring ski descent. Typ­i­cal­ly, the entire length of the approach and ascent can be skied – car to sum­mit, and back down again. With a healthy snow­pack, lots of ter­rain options and a south­ern expo­sure, the Eas­t­on has become a pop­u­lar first big-moun­tain ski descent for folks from all over the country.
