Climbing Mt Baker

Mt Baker is Vancouver's Mt. Fuji. At 3285M this strato volcano is far higher than any other mountain near the lower mainland, it huge mass volume and height creates micro climates all around it by stalling pacific storms making it one of the snowiest places on earth. In 1999 the ski hill its flanks 14km form the summit received a world record 1140inches of snow (more than 30m) a world record. Some photo credits to Martin Naroznik and Dan Friedman.
