This is backcountry skiing and snowboarding you’ve only ever dreamed of. The Mount Baker Backcountry receives the most snow of anywhere in the world. This isn’t hype, this is a hard, documented fact. Fierce Pacific storms collide with the unique topography of the Mount Baker Backcountry, creating a meteorological monster. The resulting snowfalls are immense.

What does all this mean? Well, your chances of having the greatest ski day of your life just got a lot better. Like any guide service, we can’t guarantee incredible snow and fantastic conditions, but with Baker Mountain Guides, the odds are in your favor.


Baker Mountain Guides offers both custom and scheduled
day tours in the Mount Baker Backcountry.

  • Single Day

    We’ll rendezvous in Bellingham or Glacier and caravan to the Heather Meadows trailhead. Bagley Basin, Table Mountain, and Mount Herman offer stunning terrain for intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders. 6-8 hours is considered a full day of touring.

Each Adventure is Unique
