2/17 Denali Prep Course: All Good on Mt. Baker!

AAI Lead Guide David Gottlieb just checked in from about 1,000ft below Sandy Camp on the South Side of Mount Baker.    Wait, Mount Baker?   Yep, they are on Mt. Baker.  After the road to Paradise on Rainier didn’t open this weekend, the team switched gears and headed to Mount Baker to get into the snow.   It’s a beautiful, clear day on Mount Baker and the team is doing well.  It’s a cold one, with the temperature hovering right in the mid teens.   On the bright side, there’s no chance of the freezing rain that has hit other Denali Prep courses this season. Everyone is doing great and staying warm.  Stay tuned for more updates coming down the line.

This is not the first time I have seen this sentiment in an instagram post or an article about leaving no trace: “Tag responsibly.” “Keep the West wild.” What does this tag mean? I understand the fear that wild places may […]
