Good points ^
Baker is not great for beginners as beginner/intermediate terrain is pretty limited. It's also not good to ride alone if you don't know the mtn at an skill level, as there are lots of inbounds avy/cliff dangers. Summit Central it is!
jd, baker has plenty for the beginners and intermediates...it may seem limited...but there are some aspects of the bunny hills that if mastered will certainly help zip around the rest of the hill, e.g., straight line bombing. And if the beginner wants some excitement there are some 5-8 foot drops, short steeps and etc on the bunny hill that will keep a beginner entertained all day. Yes it is in a rather limited area but they can't get into too much trouble, its close to the lodge and first aid hut and it is easy to find and check-in on them. In some ways since baker is compact, it is a more friendly for a beginner, e.g., can't get stuck on a 13 mile run like at whistler.
