Rough Skin up Hollyburn


Icy skin/boot pack up hollyburn peak above P3. No avalanche conditions noted. Skied out towards x country area. Classic slushy spring snow around 2pm. Shaded areas Icy and stiff. Recent rain storms have melted a lot of snow and made wells around trees significantly larger and more difficult to avoid. Treed area icy making skinning challenging, although enough give in snow pack to boot pack when needed.

Snow conditions were: Crusty. Weather conditions were: Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes. We avoided: Steep slopes. Riding quality was ok.


Sunny, light winds
