local information


10. Proximity to Vancouver and Seattle. Compared to Okanagan ski resorts like Big White and Sun Peaks, Mount Baker is an easy, less expensive and safer drive from Vancouver. For guests coming from Seattle, Mt. Baker takes less than half the time it takes to get to Whistler. For visitors from afar, combining a stay at The Shuksan with a trip to Vancouver before or afterwards makes for an amazing Pacific Northwest vacation. Vancouver's a popular spot on its own, or as the starting point for an Alaskan cruise or a journey on the world-famous Rocky Mountaineer train.

9. Tremendous value. Lift tickets, rentals, lessons, restaurants on mountain and in Glacier, groceries, gas, beer & wine ... everything is cheaper at Mount Baker and nearby Glacier. And for those coming from California or Arizona, hop on an inexpensive flight to Bellingham with Allegiant Air, then get a car rental for the easy 45 minute drive to the cabin. For families, the savings really add up!

8. Outdoor adventures everywhere. Whether you're in to winter sports like skiing, boarding, nordic, snowshoeing, backcountry mountaineering or snowmobiling, Mount Baker has it all. And in the summer, world-class hiking is the focus, along with golfing, rafting, fishing, 4x4ing, mountain biking and cycling. Speaking of cycling, it doesn't get much better than a day spent peddling up to Artist Point at the top of the Mt. Baker Highway, then flying back down at high speed.

7. Great restaurants. Yes, believe it or not, the little towns of Glacier and nearby Maple Falls and Deming have some outstanding restaurants to choose from. You can't go wrong with any of these great places to eat. Local culture and outstanding food is available at each and every one! Milano's in Glacier has some of the tastiest Italian food we've ever enjoyed. Graham's is a Glacier institution, serving up great steaks and other fare. Chair 9 is a new addition to the Glacier restaurant scene, and has amazing pizza and pub food, not to mention a cool games room for all ages. A 15 minute drive will get you to "The North Fork", a Washington State "must do" for some of the best pizza you'll ever taste.

6. Wonderful Snowline Community amenities. The Shuksan cabin is located in the private gated community of Snowline, on the edge of Mt Baker National Park. In the summer enjoy the heated outdoor pool, manicured playing field, horseshoe pits, volleyball court, basketball court, pickleball court, tennis court, kids playground, and your own fishing pond stocked with trout.

5. Luxury amenities at the Shuksan Cabin. We've outfitted the Shuksan cabin to make you feel right at home, with everything you'd expect in a luxury executive cabin. "Cabin" maybe isn't the right term as guests often comment the Shuksan is as nice as any luxury Whistler chalet.

4. Private outdoor firepit area. This is where the magic happens for many families who stay at the Shuksan. At night, sit around your own private campfire, tell stories, sing songs, snack on S'mores, and marvel at how many stars you can see in the sky.

3. Time spent together. WIthout the distraction of tv news and emails from work, you'll be able to truly relax and reconnect with loved ones. Do one of our puzzles, play Scrabble, read a book, cook up a gourmet meal, or just recline on our leather couches and enjoy a crackling fire with your favorite glass of wine.

2. Solitude. You'll be amazed at how quiet it is at the Shuksan. It's tucked away in the back of Snowline on a large forested lot. The only constant sound is the distant Nooksack River rushing by.

1. Memories. It all adds up to making great memories with those close to you. We aim to ensure you have a memorable stay at The Shuksan and in the Mt. Baker area. Not convinced yet? Read what 150 of our guests have said about their stay.
