The undisputed snowfall champion of the world, Baker gets more snow on average than any other ski resort in the world. Located about 250 km east of the Pacific Ocean, Baker gets hit with storms all season long and is just far enough inland for the precipitation to fall in the form of bottomless powder. You aren't going to find the driest powder here as the ski area lies between 1070-1551 meters, but when you get the amount of snow that Baker gets you can forget about how dry your powder is.
Baker defines a laid back mountain, the nearest accommodation is 20 miles down the road, the lift tickets are cheap, the chairs are slow and everyone is here for the same reason, powder. The inbounds terrain here is located on two peaks, Hemispheres Chair and Panorama Dome, and for the most part manages to stay in the thinly treed edges of the alpine border. The backcountry here is everywhere, very accessible and gets serious in a hurry once you enter it through one of the designated entry points off the inbounds terrain. It is enter at your own risk with a transceiver, shovel, probe, partner and thorough understanding of what you are getting yourself in to.
