A Day at the Mt Baker Ski Area
The Mt Baker Ski Area is one of the best ski resorts in the state of Washington. It’s located about 90 minutes east of Bellingham, in the northwestern part of the state. The base elevation of the Mt Baker Ski Area sits at an elevation of 3,500 feet, while the summit soars to 5,089 feet. This ski area is known to have the deepest ski base in the entirety of North America, which is in part what draws skiers and snowboarders to this incredible mountain year after year.
There are two different ski base areas at the Mt Baker Ski Area; White Salmon Base Area and Heather Meadows Base Area. Though the ski runs range in difficulty in both areas, Heather Meadows is definitely the place to go if you’re newer to skiing and/or skiing with younger kids. Both areas have lodging and food options for those times when you need a break from the mountain.
There are also a number of events held at the Mt Baker Ski Area each year, including the Legendary Banked Slalom for Snowboarders in February. This year’s Banked Slalom will take place from February 7 – 9, 2020. The event is so popular that entry into it is now determined by lottery. An incredible 385 racers from around the world take to the slopes each day. The event has been held on Mt Baker since 1985 and is regarded as the predecessor to other major snowboarding events. Some of the biggest names in snowboarding history have participated in and won this event.
If you don’t feel like making the drive all the way up the mountain yourself, you can catch a ride on the Baker Bus. The closest scheduled stop to our Inn is at the Mt Baker Visitor Center in Maple Falls.
