We snowshoed up Rummel Ridge as a car shuffle starting at Rummel Creek (signed) on Smith-Dorrien Trail. After starting out, we keep left of the creek and headed to the northwest end of the ridge. We followed the ridge to the top. From the top, we dropped to the col and descended the southeast slope a short way before turning south. We were careful to avoid the avalanche slope on our right. Once in the trees, we angled down toward the cutline and followed it back to the highway.
