This is my favorite resort for the money. I get a full day in with just a few repeat runs on the best long slopes. Lots of variety in a smaller resort. Snow is usually very plentiful. Food service is usually crowded though. Classes were very good when I switched to snow board.... Full Review
First time to Baker after a snowy Nov. Parking still good at 8:45am. Roads plowed and sanded perfectly. Covid precautions in effect, but everyone was cool about it. Blue Bird Powder Day, amazing conditions. Grooming great for those who need that.
Tickets are $67 for an adult full day at the window. No corporate passholder gimmicks, no price fixing, No VAIL or ALTERRA. Can't say how much I appreciate the owners of this operation fighting off these greed vultures.
This mountain is best suited for Intermediate to Advanced Skiers/Boarders. Not really a place for Noobs and Suburbanite Family Gapers. Cell reception is great now. There is no terrain park that I could find. You need a beacon and gear for upper backcountry areas. Loved the challenging canyons and wide open powder areas. I will drive the extra distance to shred this mountain over the formerly known mountain of Stevens Pass anytime.

This uncrowded small town feel resort is perfect for the layed back skier/snowboarder. When I say layed back I don’t mean slow, or non competitive type athlete I just mean it’s a chill mountain. If you are looking for consistent dry powder and a night life resort stick to the classic interior big resorts in Utah, Colorado , ect...

MT Baker has some of the best terrain out there, in bounds and out. To all these people complaining about the resort go to whistler or Vail if you want nightlife, its here to hit some of the sickest powder and hangout with good friends and people. Also to the person complaining about the staff, I would be shocked if they were that rude, they are all very nice and almost like a tight knit group of friends. ... Full Review
Super slow lifts that don’t open up much terrain. Very packed for how far it is and dangerous The drive is. I wouldn’t recommend coming here.... Full Review
The drive is treacherous and the ski area is horrible. Flat, boring terrain and hardly any snow at all not sure why anyone would ski here. Save yourself the headache and go Stevens Pass or Crystal Mt. ... Full Review
Every other ski resort I’ve been to will at least give you 10% off to come back the following day when conditions are bad... and today was the worst day I’ve been out in... I’ve been skiing for 27 years... was rather disappointed that no one offered to help or grab a supervisor to help the situation... I’ll likely stick to California, Utah, and Wyoming snow Cuz it’s just not worth is to ski here with that kind of treatment... not interested in coming back...... Full Review
If you want to hike for turns. Baker! They do some great things here, but not grooming. Great selection of beers, always. Lots of fun music, though not the long-haired blonde dude. Instructors are great. ... Full Review
It's not really for Seattleites looking for a nice lodge and calm groomers, but if you like it steep and deep this is the place for you.... Full Review
Sticky snow: Claims fresh powder on the website, was freezing rain instead. Be wary of their snow report, was very misleading.
Terrible service: Was double charged by the ticket window with no one to contact.
Will not be coming back.... Full Review
