Came back from Baker yesterday...
Left at 6:15 am, got there at 8:30, stopped for breaky, and gas. Border was 5 minutes. Roads were nice and cleared, did not need chains.
Morning snow was crusty as hell, it rained the day before, so it froze overnight. From 9am till 11 wasn't very good. Then we went for lunch, food was delicious and cheap. 30$ for two, burgers, chili, Gatorade, tea, chocolate... Very good.
Then after 12, it started dumping snoooow, it accumulated pretty fast, and it was probably the best 3 hours of snowboarding I've ever experienced... It was very windy tho, so chair 6 and 8 closed early, but that was okey, as chair 5 proved to be plenty entertaining!!!
Overall excellent mountain... Chairlifts are a little slow tho.
I spent 45$ gas fillup, 30 lunch for 2, 102$ lift pass for 2 = 170$
Compare that to whistler, 65$ fillup, 50 lunch, 160 lift = 275$
Saving of a 100$ easy.
Will be going again.
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
