Baker's a sweet area especially when the snow is good-which is 99% of the season there. They have the world record for snowfall of over 1000 inches during the winter of 1999. If you go up skiing/boarding and look at the lift towers you can see a white line with a '99 painted next to it. These represent the depth of the snow during the record-breaking winter of 1999. They have a great variety of terrain and runs for all experience levels. Lots of back country space too. Their lodge and facilities are great as well. You can even rent your gear up there at the rental shop. Very nice staff as well but expect to pay around $45 for a lift ticket. They also have one of the country's few intersecting chairlifts where one chairlift passes over another at a 90 degree angle. Cool beans!

PROS: Snow, Terrain, atmosphere
CONS: A little tough to get around

Baker isn't the biggest resort in Washington, but its one of the best. Its very close to Bellingham, which is good for the college crowd. It has decent lifts and enough ski area to spread everyone out. Baker gets a ton of snow and usually stays open longer than other resorts. The resort is a little far from Seattle, but a lot of people think its worth it. Its my favorite ski area in Washington.

This place gets tons of snow and has tons of terrain. There's some beginners terrain around, but that's definitely not the focus here. Lots of steep and deep and stuff that will make you crap your pants. The Canyon is one of the best runs, but if god help you if there's an avalance in there :) This is easily the best mountain in Washington State.
