Deep Powder at Mt. Baker — Video

Post by blogger | February 24, 2014      

After a few dry weeks, the Baker area has finally been receiving it’s standard ridiculous snowfall. With avalanche danger in the red, we found deep powder in the woods. Yesterday I brought out the helmet cam, and made a little video, check it out!

    Yep! The Wailers are perfect for playful powder skiing (and most other skiing, honestly)

    Staring out of my office window on a rainy day in the flattest country in the world (The Netherlands)…

    WOW, videos like these make me want to jump into the car, and drive 1000 kilometers to the Alps! (Although we very rarely have the conditions from this video 🙂 )

    Please upload more 🙂

    Nice Louie and friends. Great representation of the giggle out loud ridiculous skiing we had last week. Gone quickly with the warmup yesterday.

    Visions of Tuesday morning bluebird powder washed away in 34 degree drizzle. Feast or Famine this winter.

    Nicely done, and good to see you can keep your tips together. Hopefully we get a snow dump this weekend in California.

    Nice Louie and friends. So good to feel that joy (giggling), it oozes out of the screen and into the soul. Thanks for sharing your experience. 11 feet in 12 days? Epic sesh!

    yeah you were rockin’ those Wailers. You can put them anywhere. They give you so much confidence in tight trees.

    Nice day out.

    I remember back when skiers couldn’t enjoy the deepness that Mt Baker provided because of the lack of fat skis. People always complained about the heavy wet snow in the PNW and it certainly wasn’t a destination for many searching for great snow conditions. Sure, there were a few decent skiers, but mostly snowboarders. The place is still one of the only ski areas with a majority of snowboarders on the hill. Nice video, I miss Mt B.
