Day 1 (Sat Nov 25) 
Depart Vancouver and cross the border. Driving to Mt. Baker area Heliotrope ridge trailhead. Hopefully we can drive to around 900m and start hiking up the trail and skiing up the ridge. This day we will just make our way up and find a place to camp high on the ridge beneath the glacier, and ski as much as time and energy permits.

Day 2. (Sun)
Get up early and ski some more, especially if snow conditions are good. Then return to camp and pack up, and head back to Vancouver.
