The nearest weather station for both precipitation and temperature measurements is ST M which is approximately 15 miles away and has an elevation of 4,560 feet (2,802 feet lower than Ptarmigan Wall). Because the nearest station and this geographic feature may have differences in elevation and topography, the historic weather at the two separate locations may be different as well.
