Lets meet at Baker at 11AM on Saturday and hit the trails! The skiing should be terrific with some potential new snow on Thursday and a prediction for decent weather on Saturday. For those who want to make a day of it, pack a lunch and we can meet in the chalet after a loop around the park, rest for a bit and then go for another round, if desired. The chalet has a concession bar with hot beverages (including great hot chocolate), too.
Baker has about 14K/9M of trails groomed for both classic and skate, offering something for all skill levels. This is a Three Rivers Park, so $5 gets you a daily pass, season pass for $50. Rentals are available. IMPORTANT: The website may direct you to the wrong part of the park. Make sure you get yourself to the Baker National Golf Course/Ski Chalet.
