Mount Baker Opening Day 2010

Ski season is here!

After much debate about Baker versus Crystal, we settled on Baker (36″ base), and believe it or not I actually woke up before my 5:20 AM alarm. After picking up Shawn and Ming we were on the road by 6, at Baker just before 9 but were stymied by the longest lift line I’ve ever seen at Baker. Guess we didn’t leave soon enough to get first chair! Fortunately there was still plenty of snow left and even better, it was sunny.

Fortunately the apres was more accessible:

I took some helmet cam action but the processing of that will have to wait for another day. Here’s the few photos that I took.
