Such a Deal: Mt. Baker Offers Deep Powder at a Discount

Finally, old age is paying off.

On day 32 of the season, The SkiZer scored his first senior citizen ticket ever. At Mt. Baker, tickets are just $42 for those older than 60, and the SkiZer now qualifies. Score!

To make things even better, it was a powder day. Eight inches new had fallen overnight on top of about six inches the day before.

Thanks to the new K2 Pinnacle 105s, it was a great day. We’re into March now, and the snow isn’t exactly Champagne powder. Last year at this time, the SkiZer struggled mightily in similar conditions with his old Volkls.

It’s amazing what a legit powder ski will do for you on a day with deep, wet snow. Untracked snow was a dream, and broken snow was great too, with the Pinnacles busting through anything in their path.

It ended up being an excellent, big vertical day.
