Mount Baker boasts one of the world's best snowfall records. Skiing takes place on a volcano. This is one of the snowboarding capitals of the USA. and it's thankful that whilst we can walk on the moon or rove on Mars, the Mt Baker slopes still have no power lines, no manufactured snow, no ticket turnstiles, no conglomerates and no magic carpets. Kind of makes you think!

Mount Baker has direct access to a total of 9 ski lifts.

The skiing is at relatively low altitude, so snow cover can be variable.
