If you’ve been to Washington, you’ve probably heard of or seen the Mt Baker Ski Area. The area is well-known for its abundance of snow as well as its naturally beautiful landscape and terrain. It’s a great spot for those who want to gaze at the sky while marveling at the amount of snow falling every minute, and with each drop to the 5,089ft elevation, the mountains get a cool handsome finish.
The mountain is located in the center of a 1,000-acre area with a variety of hilly contours suitable for athletes of all skill levels. In comparison to other ski resorts of the same size, the area is considered a small ski resort. Within the vast expanse of land are beautiful terrains that appear wonderful when viewed closely and even more pleasing to the eye when viewed from a distance.
Although the area is a popular destination for local snow riders, there have been some reservations about it serving as a venue for out-of-town competitions. The slow chair lifts, as well as the small in-bounds that track out quickly on a powder day, are a disadvantage. Another disadvantage of the mountain is the lack of a mountain lodge. Furthermore, you should expect less sunshine because the majority of snowfall does not fall from a clear-blue sky. If you’re new to skiing, you shouldn’t consider Mt. Baker or take the sport lightly when practicing on the mountain.
The Mt Baker ski area has ten lifts, eight of which are quad chairs.
Mount Baker is crowded on powder days on some weekends. On other days, however, you will undoubtedly enjoy the atmosphere surrounding the snow-covered area.
After having a good time in the area, a good time at the Oyster Bar, just south of Bellingham, seems almost the natural thing to do.
