If you have the option between Baker or Whistler, I'd say Whistler. Both are renowned in the Industry and both are getting the goods that so many of us in the rest of the 48 wish for. So much of Baker's appeal is its BC. Unfortunately, since you're from Ohio, I'm going to assume you aren't a beacon guy. I went to Baker and was relatively disappointed. The conditions blew, so that didn't play into my favor, but it takes FOREVER to get to from SeaTac.
Just my thoughts.
