The consistent snow quality and variety of hill heights and slope lengths attract most ages and skill levels, making Mt. Baker the most visited sledding spot in our county. The size, expanse, and steepness of the available sledding slopes, wider availability throughout the ski season, and spectacular views make this a favorite destination for adventurers and die-hards. You'll see an excellent snow bowl between the lower and upper Baker ski lodges, at a 180-degree bend to the left, just across from the chalet. Park to the right near or just past the chalet or take the loop drive past the upper ski lodge and park on the downhill side of the bowl.
