The Snowiest Resorts in the World, Ever!

Mt Baker has some legendary backcountry PHOTO: Josh Thompson

Surprise surprise an American resort tops the list, but with a 15 year average of 701″, Mt Baker destroys the rest of the field to take the top spot.

The resort itself is small and not the most modern around – though the rustic charm is appealing to a certain breed of powder hound – but the unbeatable backcountry and the simply insane amount of fresh powder make it a haven for freeride fanatics around the world. It is a barebones mountain with nothing to offer but untracked lines and one of the most legendary events of the year, the Mt Baker Banked Slalom.

It’s worth noting that during the 1998/99 season, Mt Baker had a colossal 1,140″ of snow land on it’s blissfully quiet terrain. That’s just ridiculous!
