Mt. Baker, drive for 25
« on: 10/22/17, 09:53 AM »


Mt. Baker volcano is a favourite for Turns All Year. The North side approach drive
is 2 hours from North Vancouver BC. Heliotrope is a an awesome pitch. The Roman
Wall is a fun summit ski. Plus all the routes circumnavigating the entire mountain with all the degrees of difficulty.

The brother and I have a challenge to get up the summit and ski
the mountain 25 times. Andy 23, Mike 20.

The journey continues and here's to going up new routes on the
mountain and the local guides who might bag that many summits in
a summer season.

Thanks ShailCaser. JAGR is amazing to be playing in the NHL. Ned Overend and Tinker Jurez are still getting it done on there bikes. For sure it is harder each year to keep the body together.

  Thanks kamtron. Not sure on the crevasses.... the new snow may have helped....But more will be needed before the crevasses are bridged.
