Good luck! That will be a great feather in your alpine hat! The Mini will be casual in comparison I'm sure. If you've never been there, be careful skiing up to the mini. That huge hanging glacier to the right of the north buttress releases regularly. It released shortly after we skied up the glacier, sending house sized blocks of ice clear across the glacier and up the other side, and covering the entire little valley in ice dust for a half hour. Pretty freaking scary actually! Also, bring a pouch of Drum rolling tobacco for Lisa the base camp manager. That'll score ya points for sure!
