Mt. Shuksan in Washington State is one of the most photographed mountains around. It looms above the Mt. Baker Ski Area at 9,131 feet above sea level. One of the very cool things about the Cascade mountains is the sheer vertical rise, going from near sea level to high altitude in a very short distance.
In 2010 I traveled to Washington State with some friends in January to do some split boarding, including an attempt on the summit of Shuksan. Unfortunately, we didn’t make the summit, but we did get to complete an incredible descent of nearly 4000 feet on the White Salmon Glacier.
