Working at Mt. Baker Ski Area allows you to be a part of the Baker mountain community in a unique way. Our goal is to allow all employees to find new and ongoing ways of connecting to the mountain environment, each other, the community, and themselves through benefits designed with you in mind.
MT. BAKER ACCESSMt. Baker Employee ID allows you lift access and employee discounts on food, retail and rental items (see below)

LIFT TICKET DISCOUNT FOR FRIENDS & FAMILYApproved employees receive a select amount of discounted lift tickets to share with friends and family ... bring them up to shred with you!
LIFT TICKET EXCHANGE WITH OTHER AREASThe mountain community extends beyond Mt. Baker! As an employee, you have the opportunity to connect and shred other PNSAA Ski Areas around the Pacific Northwest for free and/or discounted prices!
GEAR & SWAG DISCOUNTSDo you need to:

Baker employees have access to a variety of brands that sell hard goods (skis, snowboards, boots, bindings, etc.) and soft goods (goggles, outerwear, hats, etc.). The availability and amount of discount varies by brand and employee position.
