The February weather was not the greatest, however, the two days that we rode at Baker were awesome. The resort is a bit out of the way but staying at any of the nearby Mt Baker rentals is the ticket if you don't want to drive. Don't get me wrong, Mt. Baker IS worth the drive. It's an old school style resort where everyone is unpretentious and helpful. The repair, rental, & sports shops were well stocked. The terrain was varied and I found untracked spots everywhere. The lodge is nice and the beer was cold. Watch the weather: it may be raining at the base but snowing up the hill-bring gear for both!!
