Brandywine slush

Sea To Sky

Snow starts at around 900 m on the road, and is mostly continuous with a few bare patches. Good coverage from upper trailhead. Very warm at the start and no overnight freeze. About 10-15 cm of slush sat on top of a thin crust. A number of wet slabs released in the afternoon probably as a consequence of the unexpected sun. Skiing quality was OK, with better less heavy snow above 2000 m. Firmer snow on the sleds tracks. Very quiet day and lots of snow left. Some massive cornices still lingering around.
