Alex Ropka, his father Ben Ropka and a few other friends spent their Thanksgiving weekend up North at the Mighty Mt. Baker ski area skiing off all of the turkey and stuffing on the groomers and off piste hard packed. From the looks of the video below, Alex put together, Mt. Baker has good early season coverage, but still needing more snow to get those good intermediate runs set with “wall to wall” corduroy. Alex and Ben are also “year round” skiers, but I’m sure they were stoked to get some aid from the lifts this weekend (just like a lot of us Cascade Crown skiers did this weekend). BTW, Mt. Baker is now open for daily ops, for more info click here.
Below is a short edit Alex put together of their two days on Mt. Baker.
