02-07-04 - Mt Baker

Post by n16ht5 » Sat Feb 08, 2014 10:03 pm

Went up sled skiing at Mt Baker on Friday.

It was socked in lower down and snowing. Had the snow vertigo in full effect, couldn't see where we were going until we got above it.

Free and clear

Got quite a few ski runs in, snow was extremely varied in condition... 8" of powder in some spots, windblown in others, crusty, layered, etc.. weather was great though and we got a lot of vertical in.

Up on the Easton Glacier

Pretty much had the whole mountain to ourselves

Aaron dropping me off, around 7,800ft. We had some climbs completely pinned to get here :tongue:
Image

I came back up and went higher, stopped at 8,000ft. Wind started picking up quite a bit up higher so I turned around
Image

The crater, not much further ahead. Next time I want to ski down from there.

lots of crevasses look out for

Looks awesome. I didn't realize you could ride that far up. Is that the summit we are seeing in some of the pictures? Guess it goes without saying, be careful!
WINTER IS HERE
