At long last, I finally made the commitment to do the Ridge. And in summary, I totally recommend anyone to get up on the Ridge and enjoy it for yourself. Little else can be said but "Just Do It"!
"Skiing trails is clearly a different game than other kinds of skiing, and fabulous technique counts less than nerve and craftiness. If you have a lot of nerve, the ultimate unrestrained way to ski trails, of course, is to schuss the trail until things get desperate and then sit down". Steve Barnett, Cross-Country-Downhill
