Baker b/c - Ptarmigan Ridge (Dec. 8)
Hopeful that the mini-typhoon that blasted through the region earlier in the week did not wash our entire snow pack into Puget Sound, Scott and I endured the three-hour drive to the Mt. Baker ski area for a day of touring around Ptarmigan Ridge. We would not be disappointed, and our determination was rewarded with 8 to 12 inches of the lightest champagne imaginable over a very firm base. Full report here.
