10 Must-Do Bellingham Adventures in 2018

December 6, 2017 | By Jarad Hull

From epic hikes in the Cascades to climbing in nearby Canada, this bucket list is all Bellingham. And boy is Bellingham a coveted spot for the outdoors lover: Skiing? Check. Running? Check. Camping, climbing, biking, kayaking? Check, check, check, and check. In fact, it was tricky narrowing it down to just 15 must-experience activities in this outdoorsy paradise. But without further ado, here are our ideas for discovering adventure in the upper-left corner of the country as we roll further into 2016.

1. Ski the Shuksan Arm

‘The Arm’ is quite possibly one of the most photographed backcountry ski shots in the country, and it’s easy to see why.
