Artist Point Ridge
At the ridge line, pause to enjoy the views from Artist point of both Mt. Shuksan and Mt. Baker. The panoramic views are spectacular any time of year.
Once you have reached the ridgeline, you now have several descent options. Ski west along the ridge overlooking Bagley Lakes Basin to ski the Blueberry Chutes and find the desired chute or run you wish to descend.
The second decent option from Artist Point is to descend east into the Swift Creek basin, which is just southwest of the Blueberry Cat Track at the ski area. From the saddle at Artist Point, head east towards Austin Pass. From here, descend east into the basin. The east-facing slope often has a deep collection of powder that doesn’t get much sun and is a great intermediate run that is worth repeating.
