There isn't any certification that is REQUIRED to go into the BC, but you better sure as shit know what you're doing out there before you even think about going out there. Especially at Baker. Get yourself the gear and avy training.

It's amazing backcountry riding with very high consequence if you make a mistake. That consequence usually being death. Take Level I avy course. Get the basic avy gear. The riding is amazing outside of the ski area, but you need some knowledge.

No, it's not. But if you like living, it's highly recommended.
