Early morning - The Ramp

 Brian, Tim, and I pulled into the upper Bridger (early season) parking "lot" shortly after 6am.  We braved the modestly cold temps (single digit F) and let our headlamps lead the way.  Eventually we reached the Bridger Ridge on top of the ramp and enjoyed skiing in the early morning light.  The only hiccup was Charlie the dog who seemed to have developed a fear of steep slopes and decided to stop.  Brian had to badger him down.  Poor Charlie.  He had a rough go skiing Sunday on a truly difficult slope, but today's challenges were mostly in his head.

Overall a great way to start a day.
