Things to do: The Shuskan is nestled in the safe and private gated community of Snowline, which offers something for the whole family to enjoy: basketball, swimming, tennis, spectacular hiking trails and views, and much more. Snowline is located just 25 minutes from the Mt Baker Ski Area and is the closest lodging to the lifts available. Ideal for any time of the year.
The Mount Baker and North Fork Nooksack River area is unsurpassed in its scenic beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities. Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan (said to be the most photographed mountain in the world!) lie at the headwaters of the Nooksack River watershed in northwest Washington State.
SPRING & SUMMER: Springtime is the time to enjoy:
- Backcountry treks on snowshoes and touring skis;
- Spring skiing and snowboarding in warm sunshine;
- Foraging for mushrooms,fiddlehead ferns, wild strawberries, thimbleberries, and salmonberries;
- Searching the shady forest for delicate flowering plants such as trilliums and bleeding hearts;
- Canoeing and fishing at Silver Lake when the season opens in April.
By mid-summer, the Heather Meadows Recreation Area is clear of snow and the road opens to Artist’s Point and the Austin Pass picnic area, offering spectacular views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and surrounding peaks. Moonrises at dusk, the luminous heavens, and August meteor showers create magnificent evenings and unforgettable experiences.
With over 100 miles of maintained trails and many Forest Service roads in the region, there are diverse backpacking, fly fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing, hiking, and sightseeing opportunities for all ages and levels.
FALL & WINTER: By the second week of September the high country is aglow with the golds of mountain ash and the fiery reds and oranges from the leaves of blueberries and huckleberries. Summer activities carry over into fall and are joined by hunting and berry picking; a trip to the meadows at this time of year will provide sweet berries to nibble on during a trek or to take home for making pancakes, jams and pies. By late September and into October, the big leaf maples and cottonwoods in the lower North Fork valley are at their peak in color, making this an ideal time to enjoy a fall drive. Sometime in late October or early November, snow begins accumulating again in the higher elevations and a serene silence descends on the mountains.
By late November, winter has arrived. In addition to visiting the ski area, there are other wintertime activities to consider. These include snowshoeing and ski touring; snowmobiling; hikes along the river and its tributaries; eagle-watching; steelheading and more.
