Burstall Pass

Mark Weaden

Skied up Burstall Pass today. Skied to the toe of the glacier and turned around. Found a reasonably rapid rise in temp -16C to plus 2C from car to car. Saw some old point releases on both sides of the valley though mainly on the western slopes. A decent amount of solar and wind effect. Not great skiing, though not the worst. Stuck to the easy stuff all day. Gorgeous day out!

Snow conditions were: Crusty, Hard, Wind affected. Weather conditions were: Cold, Warm. We rode: Alpine slopes, Mellow slopes. Riding quality was ok.
