About the Ski Resort

Mt. Baker Ski Area sits at the edge of the wilderness in the heart of the Northern Cascades of Washington State.

Surrounded by wilderness area, national park and spectacular rugged mountains, the scenic setting of the ski area is uniquely beautiful.

With steep chutes, natural half-pipes, canyons and plenty of tree skiing, Mt. Baker is not a "ski rink" it is a mountain.

From I-5, take Exit 255 and follow the Mt. Baker highway (Highway 542) 56 miles to the ski area.
