The snow wasn't very good on this trip. A super hard crust meant for easy touring but a real lack of powder. Lean Rowat, Arlin and I planned to camp overnight in baker backcountry. We met Ruby Rowat and Becky Philips at the parking lot and convinced Ruby to camp with us. She was missing a sleeping pad so I gave her some bubble wrap from a new pair of skis. Yikes. We camped at the start of ptarmigan ridge during a very warm winter night. In the morning a bunch of friends showed up including Kari Medig, Cam Shute, Genevieve, Scott Nelson and Sandra Nicols. We had a good tour out to Coleman Pinnacle and back.
