13Oct2011. Occupy Baker.
« on: 10/14/11, 12:52 PM »

I was on my way to work early in the morning when I came across a filthy stinking hippy. As usual I lowered the window of my BMW to shout some abuse at this parasite of society. As I did this, I read his cardboard notice, and was aghast that it had no spelling mistakes. "Occupy Baker" it read. Something strange then happened. I called the secretary, canceled all the meetings I had with the people whose blood and money I was going to suck dry, and sallied forth to drink from my new found elixir of life called powder. I cannot get enough now. How do you guys deal with this addiction?

That looks absolutely amazing!  I am heading there tomorrow morning (SAT).  Is the slope right above the Hogsback camp still really icy (crampons)?

So stoked!

Also, did you use or think it was needed to have avalanche gear?  Maybe a foot of new over the old?

Thanks,

four of us headed up there thinking we would ski off the summit... discovered perfect snow down low, scrapped the summit and lapped everything from 5:30 am to 3:00ish. october is my new favorite month.

Awesome shots- October looks amazing. I haven't been out to Baker much, where did you guys ski? I imagine this has to be above Table / Herman area... Coleman Pinnacle? further up?? Thanks!
