    From the office, we will drive to the North Side of Mount Baker and park at the Heliotrope Ridge Trailhead. This is a well graded trail that provides quick access to a spectacular alpine wonderland. We’ll hike to a camp at or above the tree line, typically at the edge of the Coleman Glacier at ’ and practice moving, pacing and standing.   After a few days of sitting around, and an appointment to get my wisdom teeth taken out the next day, I was itching to ski something up here in the Cascades, Washington. Various ideas of north facing routes were tossed about, and the Coleman Headwall on Mt. Baker was decided upon. The great thing about Mt. Baker is the plethora of options.

    Join us for a Mount Baker Climb! We guide two different routes on Mount Baker, the Coleman/Deming Glacier on the Northside of the peak and the Easton Glacier on the Southern flanks. Both routes offer a great introduction to roped glacier travel and basic mountaineering. On the North side route we meet in the small town of Glacier, WA to begin. Mount Baker's Coleman Glacier route is my favorite ski mountaineering route. The approach trail through the forest is a cut above the other volcano's flora and the views of big ice are even more blue than Rainier. Most of the skiing is cruiser, but the crest of the Roman Wall is a serious place for turns. The total climb is 7, feet.

Highlights Previous workers have suggested Holocene glacier history on Mt Baker was anomalous. We show that glacier fluctuations were similar to those elsewhere in the region.

Glaciers advanced during the Younger Dryas and receded in the early Holocene. Neoglaciation began ca 6 ka and glaciers advanced to successively greater limits.
