My partner and I are planning to ski up Mt. Baker tomorrow but we're still trying to figure out a start time.
We've got good avi-assessment experience and a bit of glacier experience, but we've never been a mountain as big as Baker.
I've seen some people have started as early as 3am from the trailhead and I've also seen 6am and later. Another thing we're trying to figure out is if we're going to sleep in Vancouver or try to stay someplace in Glacier to sleep to get an earlier start. I'd describe our pace as medium-slow.
Thoughts? Any feedback welcome! Thanks very much!
