Open November to April, the Mt Baker ski area has enough soft, fluffy white
powder to keep even a boarder like Terje Haakonsen stoked. Definitely sick.
Even at the peak of summer, you’ll likely see snow when you air out your
landing in the alpine at the end of this seriously Twisted black diamond in
the Mt Baker-Snowqualmie National Forest. The lower three-fifths is a more
mellow, better-paved stomp through the heavily forested, sometimes rugged
North Fork Nooksack River valley. But once you split from the Nook’ and head
uphill on the rougher, upper two-fifths of the run, don’t sketch out the
intense corners too much or you could major it off the crazy ol’ cliffs up
here. A huge whack of this route is marked as a scenic byway but Scenery is
less sweet than you’d expect ‘cause the trees often block the views. Come
spring, unless you’re so ‘core you skate the transitions year round, you might
wanna stop bustin’ head-high Haakons on your Sims and try a Front-Side 540
Melon while riding a Ducati Monster Chromo. Now, that would be sick.
"I'd been putting off checking this road out for too long. The other day, a friend told me it's been repaved, so I finally went up yesterday. Woooo-Hooo! This road freakin' ROCKS! Before, DH1 & DH2 had been my favorites (in that order, because 2's pavement is poor, but this road has now taken the #1 spot in my heart for now. Extremely light traffic on weekdays!"
"This road rulz, new pavement really makes a difference. =:^)
Should be higher than #8!!!!!!" --Bz2Bz
