Hello Climbers and Skiers,

The Baker backountry ski cabin is open for reservations! Come join two dozen of your friends to enjoy the snow around the Mt Baker ski area and hang out in a giant lodge. Last year we did sell out so don’t wait too long to sign up. We also officially have a van dweller special this year (see below). We call it a backcountry ski weekend but anyone can come no matter what your winter activity of choice is. There are plenty of touring and snowshoeing options from beginner to advanced and the ski area is an option for anyone without AT gear. If you need help finding partners to ski with let me know and I’ll try to coordinate. When: Jan 25 – Jan 27 2019 Where: Glacier, WA Cost: Members $100, Non-Members $105 Other important info: Please be aware that the lodge only has queen beds and priority goes to anyone that doubles up. Be prepared to spend a night on a couch or floor if you don’t share a bed. Breakfast and dinner on Saturday will be provided. Anything leftover will be Sunday breakfast. This is a great opportunity to take an AAIRE level 1 avalanche course offered by the American Alpine Institute out of Bellingham. There is no Boealps discount or organization for this class. Details can be found here: http://www.alpineinstitute.com/catalog/avalanche-training-aiare-1/ Van Special: If you would like to stay in your van the cost is $25 per person. You still get all the benefits and use of the cabin but just have to sleep in your van. Please email me if you are interested in this option. Cancellation Policy: Full refund if you cancel before Jan 11, 2018. After that I cannot guarantee a refund.
