2 Day Mount Baker Ski Descent – At 10,781 feet, Mount Baker, or Komo Kulshan (the “Great White Watch­er”) is one of the most picturesque volcanoes of the Cascade Range. It is the ideal location for aspiring ski mountaineers, and those who want to explore skiing on glaciated peaks. It is the second most glaciated mountain in the Lower 48 States, exceeded only by Mount Rainier, and its ice-covered pyramid is an iconic sight rising in the distance above Seattle and Vancouver, British Columbia.
