    Things are turning around at baker. Started as rain this morning, temp dropped finally and looking like up to 6" today. Tomorrow/sunday should be good days up there.

    Fuck yeah ! Its ski school time
    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Hello drizzle my old friend
    I see you've trashed rockface again
    Because pwls soft creeping
    With wetness sly seeping
    And the moisture that was planted in my snow
    What a blow
    Within the sounds of slishing

    In snowless dreams I skied alone
    Narrow runs like cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a slopeside lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When the crash of an avalanche that split the night
    What a plight
    And touched the sound of slishing

    "Fools" said I, "You do not know
    Pwls like a cancer grows
    Read my pits that I might teach you
    Turn on transceivers that I might reach you
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    No one tell
    And echoed in the wells of slishing

    And the skiers bowed and moaned
    To the trickling rain that droned
    And the puddle reflected its warning
    In the weight that it was forming
    And made the sound of slishing

    And the water said, "The words of the forecasters
    Are written on the rain runnel marks
    And debris arcs"
    And whispered in the sounds of slishing

    i've never used the free days I get on my MHM pass at Baker
    I know that there isn't lodging at the hill
    what town(s) should i be looking in to minimize the morning commute but still have options for economy (but not crappy) lodging?

    Yeah my go-to option when living in PDX was like an econolodge off of 539 for ~$55 a night.

    The cruise up from Bellingham isn't bad. I usually stay with a buddy there when we head up to Baker. There's a lot of airbnbs in glacier but not many options for food/bars/etc.

    Just dropped my skis off at ProSki on Aurora to have them mount AT bindings on them. Pretty stoked to get into skiing in the backcountry. After I pick them up next week, I plan on signing up for a course or two from Pro Guiding Service. Should I take their "1-Day Intro To Ski Touring" course at Crustal first, or should I instead take their "AIARE Avalanche Course Level 1" at Snoqualmie first?

    Ok, I assume you are talking about https://www.proguiding.com/three-day...course-19.html this one. I assume I can rent a probe, beacon, and a shovel from Pro Ski in North Bend, but do they rent ski crampons?
