Mount Baker: Early season ski trip report

Last weekend brought a nice dump of snow to the Pacific Northwest. Rainier was forecasted to get walloped and further north, we got a decent amount of snow as well.

A few brave souls explored the alpine as the snow was still falling on Sunday but I didn’t get out until Tuesday. It was worth the drive down to Mount Baker (or Kulshan) and I was able to start skinning below tree line. The lower glaciers suffered significant losses over the hot summer and, despite the snow, were still heavily crevassed making skiing a bit limited.
