Using Scroll top to fade in/out an element with responsive height. Additional conflicts with slick jquery plugin.

I know I can use the scrolltop function to fade in and out an element fairly simply. However I don't want to fade it out until it almost off the screen and the height of these elements are the full window height minus the sticky header.

ScrollTop returns the px difference from the top of the element... so I'm quite stumped on how to solve that.


I want to fade in and out #bio-page and #contact-page.

I also want to fade out the .slides but it is messing with the slick jquery plug in. After fading out slick it seems like it can't fade out the slide it's on to go to the next slide and gets freaky(glitchey).
