This 3-day Mount Shuksan ski traverse is also known as the Noonsack Traverse amd is will take you through one of the most stunning landscapes in the north of the United States.
Mount Shuksan is a beautiful glaciated massif located in the North Cascades National Park, up in the state of Washington. It’s really close to Mount Baker and also almost in the border with Canada. Its Summit is known for its three sided peak that is usually known as the Pyramid Summit.
And the main objective of the Nooksack Traverse is to climb and ski down this Pyramid Peak. But it also is designed to take you skiing some of the best powder in the States and through a beautiful scenery.
We’ll start at the Mount Baker Ski Area and descend to the White Salmon Valley. Then we’ll climb Mount Shuksan and camp right at the base of its summit. The next day we’ll climb to the summit through the Crystal Glacier and ski down!
Last, but not least, on the third day we’ll also summit the Ruth Peak and ski down its north face. From the base we’ll follow a valley to get to the Hannagan Pass Trailhead.

If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
