The Nooksack Traverse is characterized by stunning scenery and fall line skiing. Mount Shuksan is the centerpiece of the traverse, and if conditions allow, we will attempt to ski the summit pyramid. The route carefully and quickly traverses the breathtaking Nooksack Cirque, and concludes with quality ski descents of the Spillway Glacier on Icy Peak, and the North Face of Ruth Mountain.
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 Nooksack Traverse.
