Drive up Grouse Creek Rd to Heliotrope ridge trailhead. Hike up the trail as if we were going to climb Mt. Baker (1-1.5hr). Once we get up to the ridge area we will look for some good snow and do yo-yos.

This trip will involve walking for a fair bit in your ski boots, so make sure you're comfortable in them.

On the way back we will probably stop for dinner. I suggest El Nopal (Mexican) in Sumas.

Required Items to Bring:
Passport, skis, skins, poles, ski boots, avi beacon, transceiver, shovel.

This trip is weather dependent. There has to actually be ski-able snow on Heliotrope ridge. Usually there is by this time of year, but it's possible this trip will be postponed or cancelled.

Please review our Etiquette Guidelines!
Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
