I have been a little obsessed lately with Baker with 4 ascents and descents via different routes this past season.So my brother talked me into hitting the Ptarmigan ridge loop. Excellent coverage for this time of year.One pitch was around 1000 feet of sustained skiing.The hike is enjoyable and not a straight up grind like the heliotripe.
I'll be returning to this area to get those early season ski turns in, many more times.
Andy hike out.

I guess that it's all one season if you go month after month.I just have that feeling skiing in Sep that it feels like early season with cooler temps.Also I started TAY in October.So that kind of signifies the start of another season.
