Baker is overhyped. It rains more than it snows, the locals are all dicks, the mountain is flat and mainly groomers, lift lines are an hour long most of the time, and everything is way overpriced. Im so tired of it im probably not going to ski there this season. I would to BC if i were you.

It's truly impressive when people from the Washington regionals get dragged into the main forums.

What about other resorts in WA? Stevens, Apental, etc? I'll be in whistler and I'm homing to do a few road trips. Revy and the rest of the Interior is vary far and is a bitch to get too from whistler, especially if there's new snow. The highways are kind of sketchy.
Rain showers likely, Rain likely, Rain, Showers possible, Rain, Heavy rain expected. It's all the same.
I've found that snorkels actually trap too much rain here in the PNW and could easily lead to an accidental drowning while riding. I will be testing out a scuba tank/mask combo at Baker this winter to ensure I don't drown from the torrential rain.
the problem with baker is 50% of the time it's raining, and of the other 50% of precipitation like 40% of it is hella wet and sticky. plus the visibility at baker is often quite poor, also on the days when it is good the lifelines are crazy long.
lol and i agree with literatures post above, haha so true
I don't know why this is so negative... Any time i've been there the longest lift line has been 5 min... (and i've only been on weekends or holidays) and as for the rain, just look at the forecast and see how cold its gonna be! As with a lot of Northwest mountains on the coast, it can rain! Bottom line is, check the forecast, if it seems alright then give it a go!

Jan26th of last winter..... stayed at some guys trailer and cabin he rents out right below baker. Baker got pounded that week before. We got 15 inches the night before, and it snowed all day. Must have been one of the first 20 people on the mountain that day. Chair 6 opened up later in the day and those were the deepest freshest tracks I have ever skied. Hardcore local gathering for sure though. It seems to be their mountain.
^The think that Baker belongs to them and if you even look at their pow patch bro...ooo they'll give you some gnarlyyyy looks brooo..Baker actually is fucking awesome and has deeeeep fucking snow. EVERYONE SHOULD GO TO BAKER AND SPRAY A LOCAL
sorry we have to explain our climate and somehow people dont get it. our base is below 3500 feet. top barely 4k, combine that with such close proximity to the ocean. tell me what you get? go take any climatology class and you will find out.

Mt baker is near my cousins house in bellingham and we wanted to try it out. It was raining in bellingham so we assumed it would be dumping on the mountain... Wrong, it turned out to be fucking pouring down rain. AND THE LIFT LINES WERE STILL OVER 20 MINS! The mountain blows major cock. No wonder washington doesn't have a tourism board, noone would ever want to go there
SPOILER- walter kills skyler
Walter has killed, I don't know 3 or 4 people. The first one was combo or whatever his name is and he eats his PB and J with the crust off. So after Walter kills him he eats his PB&J that way just watch the episodes again, and then with gale or what not, when he, or jesse killed him he started to eat that soup he made. He also, however I forgot ate the same thing Gustavo liked after he killed him.
I believe during the first episode of the 5th season
