Default Finally might be getting to Baker

I finally got my passport (jeez what a clusterfuck), so we're going to try to get to Baker for spring break (Mar 18-22). I'm trying to book a condo for a few days. Someone at work owns one and advertises it in the internal web ads, so I'm trying to get available dates from him. If worst comes to worst we'll just go up for the day, but ideally I'm going to try for 3 nights.

On the subject of accomodation, the Snowater Resort looks to be something like 8 miles from the ski area. Near as I can tell there's nothing but 'The Firs' anywhere within walking distance of the lifts, and that's not really standard accomodation. So is there a shuttle, like Manning Park has? or is there tons of parking? Could use a bit of advice from locals to know what to expect.

IIRC snowwater is a bit further than 8 miles, there is the baker bus from Glacier, but its an easy drive up, just take your time. There is a lower "white salmon" lodge and the upper heather medows...either one works. There is the Firs but I've never been in or don't know anything...I think its a dormatory style. There is plenty of parking and it is right at both the lodges unless its a very busy day then just a very short walk...just a city block or two. There is no night life except for what you make, but ride all day, hit the hot tube and repeat.

pm I try to meet for a tour

Booked 3 nights, 18th to 20th. We'll arrive late on the 18th, hit the slopes the 19th and 20th, and maybe partial day on the 21st.

Sorry, SW, 21st on was booked.
