This will be a Scramski - hitting all three peaks, but intending to ski off two of them (Fay and Pleasant).  This is weather/snow dependent and may be changed to Mount Ruth in Rainier.  We will drive to Mowich Lake, and do an out-an-back to Hessong and Pleasant first, then Fay Peak skiing on whatever snow is available.  Hope for good weather - if there are issues then as an alternative we could do Mt. Ruth via Glacier Basin in the park.  Skis, skins are additional equipment you will carry (likely you should hike in approach shoes and ski boots carried until needed).  Leader permission required - will be asked about recent conditioning and skiing experience.
