The Isolation Traverse explores stunning terrain between the Cascade River Road and the North Cascades Highway. The traverse involves 15,000 feet of skiing over 20 miles of remote and rugged backcountry. Much of the route is glaciated, and there are several technical sections that require a rappel. Along the way, we’ll summit and ski Eldorado Peak, Isolation Peak, and Snowfield Peak.
Backcountry ski traverses are logistically challenging. Baker Mountain Guides has completed many traverses throughout the North Cascades. Our experienced ski guides, operational flexibility, and local knowledge create the best chance for success on the Isolation Traverse.
