Ascent of Ptarmigan Peak on Spring Snow, Lake Louise, Banff Park

A late snowpack and a hard overnight freeze gave good conditions for a bike, hike and snow ascent. About 21 km and 1400m round trip.
Kicked steps up to summit ridge, downclimbed into notch and then scree to summit. More pics at http://www.billkerr.ca/index.php/ptarmigan-peak-june-24-2017/
