Description

From the Mt. Baker Ski Area parking lot head South on a groomed, wide track. This track ascends slightly until it diverges from the ski area, heading South-southwest. From here, the approach rises up a heavily used snowshoe track with some steep sections thrown in for good measure.

Due to the extremely high traffic of this area, there will undoubtedly be many ascent tracks to take. Generally follow the tracks up and depending on what you're looking to ski, head that direction.

From the top, you'll get incredible panoramic views of both Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker.
