Mt. Baker Lodge is a comfortable, rustic 1950's volunteer-built facility sleeping 62 dormitory style. It is located within walking distance of the Mt Baker ski area. The dorm is separated into women's, families, and men's areas and each bunk is furnished with a mattress. Showers are available. The lodge is owned, maintained, and operated by volunteer Mountaineer Club members for the use of its members and others. On weekends, the Lodge usually opens between 5 - 8 pm Friday (check with hosts) and closes by noon on Sunday.
Each person who comes to the lodge is expected to help with house-keeping tasks each day. They are simple (assist with dish washing, meal preparation, cleaning, snow removal, etc.) not time consuming, and typically won't interfere with your activity schedule. In addition, each person washes his or her own dishes following each meal. A list of tasks are posted at the registration desk and everyone, including children, are expected to participate. It's during times of sharing the work that people find they get to meet and enjoy the other guests at the lodge.
Saturday and Sunday breakfast and Saturday dinner are included. Friday dinner and weekend lunches are not included; however, for special group outings these can be provided. There is a storage area for personal lunch supplies in the lodge or, during the ski season, you can buy lunches at the Mt. Baker Ski Area.
A flashlight; personal recreational gear; a warm sleeping bag; pillow, if you wish; personal grooming items; water bottle; lunches, unless otherwise noted that lunches are provided by the lodge.
The Mountaineers seeks to provide the most enjoyable, safe environment for all clubhouses, lodge guests and members. Please note that the Mountaineers reserves the right to restrict members or guests from using its facilities, or may require members or guests to leave who clearly exhibit flu-like symptoms (or symptoms of similar illnesses which public health authorities have warned are presenting a significant risk of transmission) from using our facilities, like our lodges or clubhouses. Flu-like symptoms include, but are not limited to severe or sustained coughing or sore throat, a fever of 100 degrees or higher, chills, body aches, runny nose, headaches, fatigue, diarrhea or vomiting. Members and guests who have had the flu (or similar illnesses identified by public health authorities) are expected to refrain from using the facilities until they have been symptom free for at least 1 day without the use of medication. If you are exhibiting any of the above symptoms please do not attend any Mountaineer functions. For the safety of all, if you are beginning to experience these symptoms before a clubhouse event or lodge visit, please revise your plans. Many of our lodges are located in areas of extremely limited accessibility, especially during the winter. Evacuation of someone with an illness may be problematical, especially in adverse weather conditions which may occur any time of the year in the mountains. Any members or guests who have been restricted from using Mountaineer facilities, or need to cancel their use of our facilities under these circumstances will receive a full refund of the unused fees paid to the Mountaineers for their stay at the lodge, or for an event at the clubhouses. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Our cancellation policy is that there are no refunds made if one cancels after 5pm Thurs prior to their weekend or whenever the signup period is scheduled to end unless the Lodge itself is closed or the road is closed. In the case of an accident (i.e. broken leg), the overnight fee may be refunded but not the food as it has already been bought.
