After hiking up Wilder Gulch this summer and around Ptarmagin pass and peak to the road leading to Fowler Hilliard, the route looks pretty straight forward for a January Ski into FH. It appears that it may be shorter and less steep than skiing to Shrine Mountain Inn and then over to FH Am I missing ...
