TBD. Might try to drive up Friday evening.

If Baker Lodge opens and we can get a reservation, we will stay there. If not, we will do a good old-fashioned snow camp just outside the ski area.

This trip is for all levels of skiers. Brand new skiers can get a lesson, and intermediate and advance skiers can go for it and explore the ski area. We will of course stay in groups of 3.

There is also ample terrain for backcountry touring as well.

Participants must pay for their own lift ticket. Advance lift ticket reservations may or may not be required by the ski area. Check back at https://www.mtbaker.us/ for details
