Nice turns, Chuck!
It looks like you had better weather than I did on Burstall Pass yesterday (6th). I dealt with fast-moving clouds, snow squalls, high winds at times, and brief pulses of sunshine. But the snow was really good. 4-6 inches of wind-affected but dry powder. Heavy trailbreaking in places. Despite some slabbiness it seemed to bond well and nothing was moving yesterday, avalanche-wise. Driving conditions on Smith-Dorrien were terrible.

The high bridge was no problem, but we did take the snow bridge instead on the way back… for peace of mind!

Wow, a great day to be up there! How adventurous was the ski out on the trail? How was crossing the high bridge?

Jeannette, you go girl!!! Those turns are incredible on your LT skis; or do Chuck's Hot Red AT's get all the credit? Stunningly beautiful especially the sun topping that one photo. Ditto to Roger's comment: you just keep enticing us. And also enjoyed all the "epic" Ranier, Normand, and Sara's ski trips/reports.

There were skiers ahead of us...
...and climbers to watch on the side
With my AT skis, I had to climb a little higher
The view back down
Turns from the high point...
...or are you more impressed with the turns a little lower?
Cold snow and blue skies lift the heart.
Jeannette was on light touring skis and I used my Tua AT skis, as I need a little help with my turns!
You be the judge... Enjoy.
