Mount Baker ski descent mountain madness

Mount Baker Ski & Snowboard Descents

Get Your Turns With a 7,500-foot / 2286-meter Ride down the Great White Watcher

Mount Bak­er, the high­est peak in the North Cas­cades, is a fan­tas­tic moun­tain for climbers AND skiers and snow­board­ers look­ing for a chal­leng­ing descent on glac­i­ers. Whether on skis or a split­board the climb and descent offer a com­plete expe­ri­ence. While on the sum­mit plateau, we’ll skin 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 move over to the Roman Wall and enjoy the mod­er­ate and emi­nent­ly ski­able and ride down the slopes of the Eas­t­on Glac­i­er – 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. Not sure if you’re ready, check out the Ski Moun­taineer­ing Course, Split­board Course, and the Back­coun­try Ski Fun­da­men­tals and oth­er options below.
