During this 4 day 3 night trip we will travel on the glaciated peaks of Mount Baker and ski down. While summiting Baker is the main objective other options include nearby peaks such as Colfax and Sherman.

We will spend nights basecamp style while taking runs each day. On summit day we will time our departure for the best snow quality on the descent. Possible routes include the Coleman-Deming, Squak, or Boulder Glacier Routes.
