Comments CommentsI braved the cold today to visit another new ski area. Baker had received over a foot of powder, and it was all untouched, because they were closed yesterday. Most trails had at east a few passes by the groomer, but it was all very soft and powdery. It was very cold, with wind chills 10+ degrees below zero all day, and it snowed lightly all day. There were probably 30 people total skiing, over the course of the day. Baker is the tallest ski area in New England that is only served by surface lifts, with a vertical drop of 460'. There are 5 basic runs, with lots of crossovers to switch things up. terrain ranges from wide open slopes, such as Main Trail and Body Bag, to narrow cruisers through the woods, such as Wedge, Bucksaw, and Sluice. The T-bar is a classic Poma, which is somewhat steep in parts, and will almost lift you up off the ground. It is a great community ski area, and the runs are longer and more varied than you'd expect from a T-bar area.
