Burstall Pass


Skied up to Burstall Pass -15 at the car when we started and about 10 cm of fresh snow on trail. Blue bird day. At the pass the fresh snow was closer to 15cm on top of a hard sun crust. Very little wind at the pass. Skiing was fluffy and fast. During a late lunch back in the meadows there were some small point release slides on the East face of Snowpeak as the sun heated things up. Snow also got very sticky in the skin track on the way out of the meadows. T-shirt weather crossing the alluvial fan and lake section at about 2pm.
