), also known as Koma Kulshan
or simply Kulshan
, is an active glaciated andesitic stratovolcano 
in the Cascade Volcanic Arc
and the North Cascades
in the United States. Mount Baker has the second-most thermally active crater in the Cascade Range
after Mount Saint Helens
About 31 miles (50 km)
due east of the city of Bellingham
, Whatcom County
, Mount Baker is the youngest volcano in the Mount Baker volcanic field.
While volcanism has persisted here for some 1.5 million years, the current glaciated cone is likely no more than 140,000 years old, and possibly no older than 80–90,000 years. Older volcanic edifices have mostly eroded away due to glaciation.
After Mount Rainier
, Mount Baker is the most heavily glaciated
of the Cascade Range volcanoes; the volume of snow and ice on Mount Baker, 0.43 cu mi (1.79 km3) is greater than that of all the other Cascades volcanoes (except Rainier) combined. It is also one of the snowiest places in the world; in 1999, Mount Baker Ski Area
, located 14 km (8.7 mi) to the northeast, set the world record for recorded snowfall
in a single season—1,140 in (2,900 cm).
