I've tried googling but can't really come up with a single reply or advice on getting to Mt Baker. My friend suggested I board there weekends and live in Van instead of living in Whistler but I was told by someone else that it's like a 5 hour drive so I don't know what crazy talk my friend is speaking. Anyone have any idea on boarding Baker on weekends? Hard to do? Would I need a car? Or should I stay put and suck it up in Whistler. I'm a newb to snowboarding - been twice for a week at a time but sucked SO SO SO bad.
lol thats the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. i know what you are saying about whistler though. vancouver is way better than whistler, theres only 1 type of crowd in whistler, and not much to do other than board or mtn bike. baker is about 3-4 hours away from vancouver i think. and you definitely would need a car. if you move to vancouver you got cypress, grouse and seymour. and way more shit to do during the day/night in the city.
