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 Mount Sherman.

We will spend 3 nights basecamp style while taking runs each day. Participants will also learn and practice the skills necessary to safely ascend and descend the glaciated peaks in the North Cascades. On summit day we will time our departure for the best snow quality on the descent. Most routes are moderately angled around 35 degrees. Possible routes include the Coleman-Deming, Squak, or Boulder Glacier Routes.


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