We offer 1, 2 or 3 day ascent and ski descents on Mount Baker. We will spend our multi day nights basecamp style on the moraines surrounding Kulshan. While taking evening runs each day we will get our ski legs under us. On summit day we will time our departure for the best snow quality on the descent. In springtime we call this snow type corn and many think its as good as powder! Possible routes include the Coleman-Deming, Squak, or Boulder Glacier Routes.


For those with strong fitness and skiing ability we offer a single day summit of Mount Baker via one of the classic glaciers such as the Coleman Deming, Squak, or Boulder Glaciers. Ditch the big overnight pack and go as light as possible in a long 10-14 hour day skiing up to 7,200' of vertical from Kulshan 10,781' summit. 2 people minimum for single days trips. 

With the goal of climbing Mount Baker to the summit each participant will recieve a Mount Baker Ski Mountaineering School Course. This means the learning outcomes match the objective and skills taught.
