I unfortunately went probably too late in the season as it was very damp snow. And therefore I would definitely go back. It's a decent sized hill that is not overcrowded, over hyped, over priced! I hate standing in big lines for a lift where you end up losing a good chunk of the day based on those alone. I... More

WOW. Where else can you have access to this much quality terrain, for such a reasonable lift ticket price, and yet feel like you are at home? As far as the overall experience, this is truly the best resort I was lucky to experience in North America. The atmosphere is like nowhere else I've seen. Everyone is more than willing... More

Went over the kids winter break weekend (Fri-Sun), so we were somewhat expecting it to be busy but it wasn't bad at all. Our family (my wife, son 11 and daughter 9) all really enjoyed the main blue runs that fed C-8 and C-7 chair lifts. There is even a half pipe on the expresso run that everyone loved. The... More

Went instead of Whistler to try something different. A nice mountain with good snow, but the lifts are old and slow and there isn't much vertical. A nice place, but not comparable to some of the premier resorts in BC (Whistler, Big White, Sun Peaks etc...).

It's not a resort destination with slopeside accommodations. It's not Vail, or Aspen, or Whistler. And that's a good thing. It's a throwback to a simpler time where it was about the skiing and the scenery. Sure, they've upgraded the lodges (the new Raven Hut is beautiful) but the main attraction here is the great outdoors. If you're an intermediate-advanced... More

After watching the weather and how the systems were moving we saw that mt baker was going to be cold and hit hard. It's position seems to put it in the path of moisture, it's elevation means it will fall as snow. After getting consistent 10, 14+ inches of snow over 5 days we had to go. We booked a... More

Been too long between visits. Such incredible terrain packed into a tight area. Complex but yet lots of fall line. Didnt hurt to have piles of pow

Awesome ski area! Easy drive from Seattle. Lots of variety and for every level of skier. There is always parking in the lot. Good food and beer selection in the day lodge. Live music from time to time in the lodge while you eat. The is a pro shop. You couldn't ask for the nicest group of people that work... More

The drive up from Glacier is somewhat of a pain, but it's worth the effort. The views of Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker are really spectacular.
