Food & Nightlife

Tyax Heli Skiing Packages
The nightlife at the Mt Baker Ski Area and the surrounding area is rather quiet, with only a handful of options for dining and drinking.

Mt Baker Apres

For après ski drinks you can head to the Tap Room, upstairs in the Heather Meadows Day Lodge at the Mt Baker ski area. Après festivities don’t tend to last too long considering that most folks have to drive off the hill.

Evening Dining & Drinking

When staying in the Baker area, dinner is your major logistical consideration.

Chair 9 in Glacier is reasonable for après ski drinks and pizza.

A good bet in Glacier is the ‘spit on the floor pub’ called Graham’s Bar and Restaurant. This joint oozes character and has an awesome food selection with great service and banter at the bar. Make sure to finish off whatever you have for dinner with a strawberry and apple crisp with ice cream.

On the way back towards Bellingham, stop at the North Fork Brew Pub. The beer is good in Washington – seriously good. If you don’t like beer, learn to like it, or preferably, learn to love it. The food is well priced and massively portioned. There are great pizzas, calzones, delicious lasagne and other simple fare.

Breakfast Glacier

If there is no breakfast at whatever fine establishment you are temporarily residing in, a stop on the way to the hill is mandatory at the Wake ‘n Bakery located just off the main drag at 6903 Bourne Street Glacier. Breakfast burritos, quiches (real men DO eat quiche!), great coffee and sweet baked goods will set you up for the morning’s muscle straining snow activities. My fave cookie there is the Frosty Doodle.

Brekkie is also available from Grahams and the Grab n go van near Chair 9 on the way out of Glacier.
