An amazing snowshoe experience. Follow established trails or to step into the virgin snow that covers the meadows and hillsides from the Heather Meadow parking area up to Artist Point and Huntoon Point. We ate lunch on a high point with Mt. Baker on one side and Mt. Shuksan on the other and gray jays for company. Breathtaking views. A fairly challenging ascent. Amazing snow. Warning: assess and avoid possible avalanche areas. But altogether a perfect snowshoe experience that I can't wait to repeat.
This trail opens a gate to unforgetable snowshoe experience. It soon leaves busy Mt. Baker Ski area and leads through large snowfields resembling dunes in Sahara desert, just all in while. The views are magnificent and surround visitors 360 degrees around.
Clear day. Awesome, spectacular views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, Table Mountain, south to Baker Lake, north to the border peaks!!
