Completed French-Haig-Robertson traverse and found good skiing during descent of Robertson glacier. 5-10cm of powder on supportive crust. We left early and made good use of overnight freeze down to road (-8 at Burstall Pass parking lot). Made Sir-Douglas Robertson col by 10am. Southern slopes had not yet warmed up and snow was still firm on south aspects.

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Warm, Sunny. We rode: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
