After watching the weather and how the systems were moving we saw that mt baker was going to be cold and hit hard. It's position seems to put it in the path of moisture, it's elevation means it will fall as snow. After getting consistent 10, 14+ inches of snow over 5 days we had to go. We booked a... More

Been too long between visits. Such incredible terrain packed into a tight area. Complex but yet lots of fall line. Didnt hurt to have piles of pow

Awesome ski area! Easy drive from Seattle. Lots of variety and for every level of skier. There is always parking in the lot. Good food and beer selection in the day lodge. Live music from time to time in the lodge while you eat. The is a pro shop. You couldn't ask for the nicest group of people that work... More

The drive up from Glacier is somewhat of a pain, but it's worth the effort. The views of Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker are really spectacular.

We had a nice sunny day. Could see Mt Rainier in the distance. Reflecting lakes were awesome. Went in morning and again at sunset.

Went here for the hiking, the parking lot was almost full, but the people were friendly on the trials and fantastic views of mt baker. The trails were great and we will come back again. A good hint - have the $5 change for the parking pass. Beautiful place to visit

We went and hiked in this area- just beautiful! with any different trail lengths and options available or whatever type of hiker you are. We had a 2 yo with us so we did a couple of easier hikes, but still had beautiful scenery! it was a beautiful clear day. I hope we can go back sometime and do more... More

The area has a variety of summer trails and great views. The best place to go is Artists Point and take a walk from there. Pick a clear day!

Went up to Artist point just above the ski area. One can get there when the snow level is low and sometimes in the August time frame. It is well worth a visit since the area is so scenic and the hiking is great. The day we visited the mountain was in the clouds but there was still plenty to... More

We decided to drive from Bellingham to Heather Meadows Visitor area at Mt Baker. Had no idea that the 1 hr 45 minutes drive on hwy 542 would yield such beauty. Once at the visitors center, you learn of the many hikes and road to Artist Point. Definitely take the time and go there. The hikes are not strenuous and... More
