The conditions Sunday on Burma were decent. Ridge Road was much better except for the washout near Shilly Shally (use the beaver dam for crossing). There were about 4 to 5 small sections of Burma I had to walk. Ridge is actually fine except a short section near Champlain. Rock skis are required for the trail! Fortune Lake Parkway was starting to show a couple bare patches but the hill from P10 had tons of snow.

Another great series of swimming and skiing pictures at MusicianOnSkis.ca.

Yikes, it's melting fast with this warm weather.

This downhill is still navigable if you have good balance.
