Mt. Baker reclaimed the world record for single season snowfall in 1998-99 - 95 FEET, taking it from Rainier. Next to Rainier, Baker is the most glaciated peak in the lower 48 states. This is a fairly long route with moderate crevasse risk. Camping on the edge of the Coleman Glacier is spectacular! The lower camp is best, before you get onto the glacier. Fit, small teams can do this route car to car in a day.
