MT. BAKER, WA: This course is held at the end of the road located off of Highway 542 at the Mt. Baker Ski resort. This ski resort holds the world record for most snowfall in a season, over 1000 inches during the 98’-99’ season. Bring your equipment and prepare for some powder turns.

ACCOMMODATIONS: There is no lodging directly at the ski area. They do allow free camping in the parking lot and there are a lot of Air BnBs located about 30 mins down the hill in Glacier and Maple Falls. We would recommend to book the rentals more than a month in advanced because they do tend to book up quickly.

TRAVEL: The nearest airport is located right in Bellingham (BLI), although Seattle International Airport (SEA) is about 1.5 hours to the south. If you do fly into Seattle, hop on I-5 northbound for 90 miles and you've made it to Bellingham. Take exit 255 and turn right onto 542 East. Drive about an hour and you have made in the Mt. Baker Ski Area.

NEARBY ACTIVITIES: At this time of year, the main attraction is skiing and snowboarding up on the ski hill. If you do not ski or snowboard, not a problem, there is some great snowshoeing that you can do around the ski area. Besides the winter time activities, there are some nice hikes through the rain forest and old growth groves located near Glacier, WA and if dry, some superb downhill Mountain Biking.
