Best Ski Resort of the Week: Mt. Baker

While last week's blog featured Mt. Baker as a great destination for cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing, it's wonderful downhill skiing and snowboarding runs should not be overlooked or overshadowed.

Mt. Baker Ski Resort features two main peaks for skiers and snowboarders. The highest peak is reached at Heather Meadows at an elevation of 4,300 feet. White Salmon peak hits an elevation of 3,500 feet. While some of the mountain is blocked off due to the risk of avalanche and dangerously steep cliffs, most of the mountain is fair game for skiers and riders. Mt. Baker features mostly intermediate terrain at 45 percent which makes it a perfect destination for skiers and snowboarders of all types. Twenty four percent of the runs are beginner-level, while 31 percent are expert-level. Families with children just learning to ski will find Mt. Baker has runs for the whole family.

There are some great instruction packages for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. For those just learning the Best For Beginners is perfect. The introductory package includes an hour and a half lesson with a group of six students or less-- which means that you or your child will have more one-on-one attention with instructors. The package also includes a beginner lift ticket and a 12 minute or less equipment rental-- say goodbye to wasting time in the equipment line! All of this costs only $47, which is considerably less than many other ski resorts in the West.

The lessons don't stop at beginner or purely recreational levels. For children interested in really delving into skiing or snowboarding, Mt. Baker's "Komo Kids" program may be perfect. This program offers a 3 week session of lessons and fun for kids ages 7 to 15. Adults can also opt for intensive lessons if they choose-- Mt. Baker offers lessons for adults for 5 consecutive weeks in January.

For those really itching to get out on the slopes and stay there, Mt. Baker's season pass may be just perfect. Luckily, Mt. Baker's season pass prices are at a graduated level, which means that college students can buy passes for $75 less than adults. Young adults, youths, children, and seniors all have lower rates, making the sport more affordable.

For those cold treks in the snow after a long day of snowboarding or skiing, warm snow boots will be just wonderful. Kids love them!
